The white longnose butterflyfish that landed at Abyss Aquatics in the UK is at once quite surprise and not a surprise at all. On the one hand the longnose butterflyfish, Forcipiger longirostris, and its black form is one of the oldest documented color aberrations of reef fish and on the flipside, butterflyfish have very consistent color and markings which very seldom deviate from the norm. Abyss Aquatics received this white longnose butterflyfish over a month ago, about the same time that they scored the White Scopas Tang that we already wrote about. We hope the white longnose goes to good reef aquarium home and that it retains its unique coloration well into the future.
