    Look at how fast they react to food. If I had the funds would be very interested in these.

    The gorgeous allopatric butterflies of the "Tinkeri complex".

    Genus : Chaetodontidae, subfamily (Roaps).

    The Roaps butterflies are my favourite. All are super beautiful and as hardy as damsels. These are some of natures best kept secrets. Deep dwelling denizens that do not appear frequently in the trade, but when they do, they are quick to go. Very easy and hardy, almost always do they start feeding minutes after arrival. They take shipping very well and because of their wide range of foods in the wild, are not fussy with aquarium foods.

    This genus boasts of 5 beautiful gorgeous species. 4 of which are available, and one is unobtainable.

    They are, Chaetodon burgessi, C. declivis, C. mitratus, C. tinkeri and the unobtainable one that lives in Guam, C. flavocoronatus.

    Reef safe qualities : These are deep dwelling butterflies that feed on a whole variety of things in the wild. Because of their varied diet, corals are part of it. However, they are reef safe to a certain extent like dwarf angels, and i rate them 50% based on personal experience. They have a very itchy mouth and like nipping on the slime of SPS. Do not fret, because a little harmless nipping can't and won't do any harm! Nip away! This genus is like dwarf angels and only keep them if you are willing to take some calculated risk.

    Hardiness : As hardy as any butterfly can get. All will start feeding immediately and are very greedy. 5/5!

    C. burgessi, the Burgess butterflyfish, is available with some regularity from Philippine shipments. The black and white contrast is very beautiful.


    This was in an article I read before buying my tinkeri and mitratus. Thought it was worth sharing. As mentioned I had one in my reef tank and never had a problem.
