A 125 gallon fish-only aquarium is the optimal environment for housing a Falcula Butterflyfish. With its large size, this species can be kept with other butterflyfish without too much aggression. It is important to note, however, that it may consume anemones, hard corals, and mushroom anemones, which can lead to problems in a reef aquarium. It is therefore best to keep the Falcula Butterflyfish in a fish-only tank. Additionally, it is recommended to provide plenty of hiding spaces and live rock for the fish to explore and forage.

This diet should be supplemented with a variety of vitamin-enriched foods. With a balanced diet, your clownfish should remain healthy and live a long life.
