The Declivis Butterfly Fish is known from rocky and sandy deepwater habitats at Christmas Island in the Eastern Indian Ocean and at Line and Marquesas Islands in the Eastern Central Pacific. This small-sized butterflyfish is one of a complex of several similar looking fish and is only sporadically seen in the aquarium trade.

This species is regarded as moderately difficult, and is therefore recommended for advanced aquarists only. A good-sized, mature system is requisite, along with ample live rock for the fish to browse upon/hide among and a large open swimming space along the front of the aquarium. 

Medium sized specimens tend to acclimate better to aquarium life, adapting much more quickly to various prepared foods. Smaller sized fish may be reluctant to feed, and larger specimens can sometimes be rather finicky, requiring faultless water conditions.

An aquarium that has some areas of lush filamentous algae growth will also aid your new fish in settling into its new surroundings; however, as with other butterfly fish species, these fish demand excellent water quality - thoroughly filtered and well oxygenated, with areas of brisk current. Some aquarists have successfully kept the Declivis Butterfly Fish alongside some of the more noxious soft corals, but this is something of a risk, and they should be observed carefully. Stony corals and many other sessile invertebrates will be constantly nipped at, so unfortunately must be avoided. Keep only one Declivis Butterfly Fish per tank (unless a mated pair is acquired) and not with any other butterfly fish as they will squabble over territories.

Whilst they can be a little shy when first introduced, providing them with ample retreats amongst the live rock will ensure they quickly gain confidence and venture out into the open. Once settled, these intelligent, peaceful fish actually become very assertive feeders, competing with most other fish species, and they will also be most curious of any activity in and around their aquarium. Tankmates should be of similar size and temperament. 

Feed small amounts several times per day, and be sure to offer a good variety of different foods. Frozen fare such as Mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brineshrimp, finely chopped clam/mussel/cockle/crab/shrimp/squid etc. can be proffered, but - most importantly – do ensure that the larger foodstuffs are chopped into small enough pieces on account of butterfly fish having tiny mouths.
