A butterfly fish that is now considered endangered in the United States has become one of the most popular fish to find its way to aquariums worldwide, according to a new study.
The butterfly fish, named by a Cornell University entomologist as the butterfly fish of the year, has made its way into many aquariums and aquariums are turning to the fish to fill a niche that the fish had largely neglected, said Cornell entomology professor Robert Wessels.
It’s a bit like the frog that came to dominate the landscape,” Wessel said.”
It’s really a bit of a niche fish, a bit unique, and it’s a very popular fish.
The butterflies are a bit more of a novelty.
They’re very popular, they’re good for a couple of weeks, and then they’re gone.
“The butterfly species is a small fish found in the Northern Hemisphere, with the largest specimens reaching nearly 8 inches (20 centimeters) in length.
It is one of only two butterfly species to be considered endangered.
The other is the black-footed frog, which is listed as “endangered” and is a “near threatened” species in the U.S.
Wessels said the butterfly species may have gone extinct in the past century because of habitat loss.
The butterfly fish has been the subject of much debate over the years, with some experts arguing that the species has been harmed by habitat loss and pollution.
The Cornell study looked at data from the National Marine Fisheries Service to determine the number of butterfly fishes in aquariums nationwide, as well as the percentage of aquariums that stocked them.
The researchers found that, while there was a lot of variation among aquariums, the butterfly fishes are almost exclusively found in aquaria with large populations of freshwater fish, Wessel and his co-authors said.
That’s because butterfly fish were a niche species, which means they were only found in certain habitats.
The fish are found in rivers, lakes, estuaries, and rivers in the Chesapeake Bay, the Mississippi River, and elsewhere.
There are about 500 species of butterflies, the researchers said.
The study was published in the journal Marine Biology.
