The Double Saddle Butterfly is commonly referred to as the as the False Falcula Butterflyfish, Doublesaddle Butterflyfish, or Saddled Butterflyfish. It grows up to 6 inches and needs to be kept in a tank of minimum 60 gallons along with plenty of space to swim and hiding spots. The Double Saddle Butterfly is not an acceptable addition to a reef tank since it will eat mushroom corals, anemones, and stony corals. Its diet should include different meaty items and some vegetables. The Double Saddle Butterfly thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. It is hardier in nature than many butterfly species and is considered a good fish for a fowlr tank. With its unique pattern, the Double Saddle Butterfly makes an interesting and lovely addition to any marine aquariums. It does well in pairs or alone in captivity and should be placed into aquariums that have been established for some months. If aggressive fish chase them from food, Double Saddled Butterfly Fish may stop eating, so it is important to keep the Double Saddle Butterfly with peaceful tank mates. It is named appropriately as its dorsal area is dominated by two dark saddle patches.
