Husbandry

En principe de maintenance identique aux autres poissons papillon.
Ajout : il pourrait certainement s'agir d'un hybride ici. Dans certains livres on trouve des informations concernant ce beau poisson. Je fais ici un bref résumé : ce poisson semble être plus fréquent qu'on ne le pense. La raison à sa soi-disant rareté est liée à la profondeur à laquelle il se trouve et ou peu de plongeurs peuvent accéder. Allen parle de profondeurs de 75 mètres ! Il a une vie solitaire, en couple ou aussi en groupe. Le croisement entre C. tinkeri et C. miliaris est évoquée ici. Les choses suivantes sont à souligner : les faibles points sur C. miliaris et la livrée en partie sombre à l'arrière du tinkeri semblent le prouver. Cette espèce est aussi en proche parenté avec C.declivis. Plusieurs auteurs parlent de maintenance sans problèmes en captivité.

Husbandry know-how of owners

My third Tinker's B has led me to the following conclusions: Fairly easy to keep; needs a lot of swimming space; prefers less light (probably because of the depth it comes from?); and will eat a variety of foods once it acclimates. As always with most butterflyfishes, it is best to put into quarantine in order to get it eating different foods, and to get it used to humans (as well as to be sure it is disease-free).

Deepwater, found in more than 40 meters depth; often paired; very friendly, it takes food from diver’s hand at the first encounter in the sea!; typical specimens some from Hawaii and adjacent waters only, and unusual ones with much yellow on back from other localities (see photo); very easy to keep but expensive, still rarely appears in market; I saw one adult at a shop in Oahu; in Tarawa close relatives of the group will hybridize and many variants can be seen and sold as ‘Tarawa Tinker’s Butterflyfish’, but some are closely similar to C.flavocoronatus from Guam, Saipan, Tinian and Maug (all Marianas, extremely rare), and are incorrectly sold as this one
