overviewThe Tinkeri Butterflyfish is also known as the Hawaiian Butterflyfish or Tinker's Butterflyfish. The anterior half is white with black dots on each scale and the posterior part of the body is black. Shades of yellow and orange mark the face, dorsal fin, and tail.
The Tinkeri Butterflyfish requires a moderately lit aquarium of 120 gallons or larger, as these fishes are normally found in deepwater. It is not suitable for reef tanks since it may pick at mushroom corals, anemones, and stony corals.
The diet should consist of different meaty items and some vegetables.
