The Saddled Butterflyfish, also known as the Saddleback Butterflyfish or Saddle Butterflyfish, exhibits a distinctive appearance with a prominent black “saddle” and white borders on the upper rear corner of its body and dorsal fin. In addition, it features a lower face with a vibrant orange coloration and a black tail outlined by a striking orange hue. The gray base color of this species is complemented by several blue-gray stripes along the lower body. For optimal health, the Saddleback Butterflyfish requires a spacious environment of at least 125 gallons with pristine water conditions. Furthermore, the Saddled Butterflyfish is not recommended for a reef tank setup since it has a tendency to consume most stony corals, some soft corals, and various invertebrates that inhabit live rock. To sustain a healthy diet, it is important to provide the Saddleback Butterflyfish with a variety of meaty preparations. They are not reef safe.
