Read up on Paki’s. Then think about it harder. They need lots of swimming room, eat stony corals, and certainly require stable, mature (1year or older) systems. Yah, they’re beautiful, but definitely not recommended for relatively new reefers. Butterfly’s as a whole can be labor intensive as their nutritional needs can be very narrow. In the end, it’s your decision.
