  Copperband Butterflyfish

 

Thailand

A Copperband Butterflyfish has a whitish-silver body with copper coloured vertical bands, a black eyespot near its dorsal fin, and a long, narrow nose and mouth, which it uses for hunting for food in crevices and holes along the reefs of the Indo-Pacific region where it is found, usually between a depth of 1 and 25 meters.
