    Notes:
    Hi Guys,

    I need to sell my Melon Butterfly Fish sadly :( as i can't seem to get him onto prepared food.
    And as i am not a expert aquarist i don't know how to get him feeding prepared foods and flakes etc.

    Attached is a picture of what he looks like, if you would like pictures of him i can send some tomorrow 15 September 2015.

    He is active and in a healthy state not thin at all. ​

    Not all flies like prepared food, if you can get like brine or eggs to breed out you will have a chance for him to eat, if not hope you get a buyer.
