The Pakistan Butterflyfish, also known as Red-tailed Butterflyfish, Collare Butterflyfish, or Redtail Butterflyfish, has a rich brown to black color with light spotted scales throughout. Its mask-like head includes two white bands with a black band through the eyes. The tail is most distinct with a wide red band followed by black and white bands.

The Pakistan Butterflyfish eats stony corals in the wild and care should be taken when housing it in a reef aquarium as it will nip at many sessile invertebrates that grow on live rock.

A 150 litre or larger aquarium is suitable for a pair introduced to the tank together, otherwise, is best kept singly with plenty of swimming room.

The Pakistan Butterflyfish requires a varied diet including marine fish, crustacean flesh, brine shrimp, and frozen meaty preparations. Once acclimated to the aquarium, it requires feedings several times daily.
