Like most fish in the Butterfly Fish Family, the Saddleback Butterflyfish
spends most of its time during the day picking at coral polyps as it cruises the reef. At night they hide in various cracks and crevices. In captivity, it will take dried shrimp, brine shrimp and, if another fish in the tank is eating it, flake food.
