The Pakistan Butterflyfish eats stony corals in the wild and is not recommended for the reef aquarium as it will nip at many corals and sessile invertebrates. A 125 gallon or larger aquarium is suitable for a pair introduced to the tank together, otherwise, is best kept singly with plenty of swimming room.
The Pakistan Butterflyfish requires a varied diet including marine fish, crustacean flesh, brine shrimp, and frozen meaty preparations. Once acclimated to the aquarium, it requires feedings several times daily.
