      Scientific Name: Chaetodon declivis
      Common Names: Marquesan Butterflyfish, Declivis Butterflyfish
      Max. size: 12.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine
      Distribution: Eastern Indian Ocean = Christmas Island. Eastern Central Pacific: Line and Marquesan islands.
      Biology: Found over rocky and sandy bottoms. Because of its limited distribution and deep dwelling habits, it will probably remain unknown in the aquarium trade.
      Aquarium Care: Provide with plenty of live rock and hiding places. This species is a rare/occasional import that's in high demand. It is readily adaptable and will accept captive foods. The Marquesan Butterflyfish is a peaceful and shy fish, that would do well with non aggressive tankmates. Will eat coral polyps, feather dusters and anemones.
