I heard that it is permitted for a sefaradi to eat fish with butter but not with any other dairy products. Is this a valid statement?

With credit to Gershon Gold for providing the link:
It is not a valid statement. Many sefardim eat fish with milk products as they don't have that minhag. Those that do not eat fish and milk follow the Beit Yosef strictly.
Many more sefardim indeed eat fish with butter.
If a sefardi doesn't have that minhag, he doesn't have to take on that humra (stricture) -- by coincidence I checked that today with a Rosh Kollel in Bnei Brak (but didn't ask if I can quote him).
But this is much better explained elsewhere on MY.
