The False Double Saddle Butterfly (Chaetodon ulietensis), also known as the False Falcula Butterfly, very closely resembles the Double Saddle Butterfly (Chaetodon falcula), both of which have a white body that features a dorsal area that is dominated by two dark patches with a yellow patch between them giving a saddle appearance and a black eye bar. They are very hardy and peaceful and can be kept with other peaceful fish, but may become aggressive towards other Butterflies with a similar pattern or coloration in smaller tanks.

They are also not reef safe since they will nip at and eat soft corals and stony polyps as well as ornamental shrimp, tube worms and anemones. Diet should include a variety of mysis and vitamin enriched brine shrimp, spirulina, nori, seaweed, marine algae, and algae based foods, 2-3 times daily.
