This species of fish requires a large, spacious aquarium to ensure their health and well-being. The aquarium should be 70 gallons or larger, have plenty of caves and crevices for hiding, and have peaceful tank mates. Spotband Butterflyfish should not be housed in a reef aquarium, since they are known to eat most invertebrates and nip at corals. It is important to provide a lot of swimming space for this species, as it is an active swimmer and needs plenty of room to explore. Additionally, large amounts of live rock should be included to provide ample hiding places and grazing opportunities.
The Spotband Butterflyfish is an omnivore and requires a balanced diet. To ensure optimal health, a diet of finely chopped seafood meats and algae-based meals is necessary. It is important to feed the Spotband Butterflyfish multiple times a day in small portions, as they tend to overeat when offered too much food. Additionally, it is beneficial to provide a variety of food items to ensure they receive all of the necessary nutrients. With a proper diet, the Spotband Butterflyfish can remain healthy and happy in the home aquarium. Furthermore, it is essential to monitor the water parameters of the aquarium and perform regular water changes to maintain an optimal environment.
