There are over 100 different species of butterflyfish across the globe, and their unique and colorful patterning makes them a favorite of ocean divers and aquarium enthusiasts everywhere. 

The bluestripe butterflyfish is so named for the delicate blue stripes lining it's bright yellow body. It is only found in the waters surrounding the Hawaiian islands. The bluestripe butterflyfish is an omnivore, unlike some butterflyfishes which feed almost exclusively on corals. These specialists usually have mating systems involving a pair bond, but the omnivorous bluestripe butterflyfish lives in a more resource-rich environment, where it is easier to find sufficient food. As a result, males of this species operate a harem system, defending a territory which includes up to four smaller female territories.


While these creatures are thankfully not in danger of extinction, the drastic changes that their coral reef habitats have undergone do have the potential to endanger them. Your purchase of this piece contributes 20% to Oceana in their ongoing efforts to preserve coral reefs globally. Learn more at Oceana.org.
