Interesting facts

This small fish is part of the same family as butterfly fish. This one has a white body flanked with two brown bands, where once is over the eye. It also has ocelli on the cloacal fin when juvenile. It has a small snout that is retractable, allowing it to eat coral polyps and small benthic invertebrates. It is a rather solitary specie.
