Long, Longnose butterfly fish ? Hi, I have just discovered your site, so please forgive me if this question is answered within the site.  I have just bought a yellow Longnose butterfly, the one with the longer snout I believe.  Which of the 2 is the more common?   <The "regular", Forcipiger flavissimus> In the store, I saw him eat flake; so far (2 or 3 days) he hasn't for me, so I am considering frozen Mysis shrimp.  I have a coral banded shrimp in the tank, as well as some mushroom corals.  Are these is danger? <No, should get along>   If I keep him extra well fed, does the danger decrease?  How much Mysis should I give daily if he doesn't accept the flake? <As much, many as the fish seems interested in. Please see here re these species: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/forcipig.htm>   Thanks for considering my questions.        Mike <Thank you for writing. Bob Fenner>
