Overview

The Falcula Butterflyfish, also known as the Sickle Butterflyfish, is mostly white becoming yellow dorsally. It has a series of narrow black stripes on its sides, two patches of black on the dorsal side, and a black eye band.

A 125 gallon or larger fish-only aquarium with other butterflyfish is a good environment. The Falcula Butterflyfish will eat anemones, hard corals, and mushroom anemones causing problems in a reef aquarium.

It should be fed a variety of meaty foods, crustacean flesh, mysis shrimp, frozen preparations, with an occasional anemone as a treat.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/4" to 2"; Small/Medium 2" to 2 3/4" Medium: 2-3/4" to 3 1/4"; Medium/Large 3 1/4" to 4" Large: 4" to 5"
