Chaetodon lunulatus, Pacific Redfin Butterflyfish. Scott W. Michael

Family: Chaetodontidae

Species in Genus Chaetodon:

A large genus of elegant butterflyfishes, including many of interest to marine aquarists and reef explorers.

Many feed almost exclusively on live coral polyps, especially those of Acropora spp. stony corals and these species do not adapt well to aquarium culture.
