Bennet's Butterflyfish

This image of a Bennet's Butterflyfish was taken by NOAA photographers in the waters off the coast of Fiji in the Pacific Ocean. Also known as the Bluelash Butterflyfish, this species is found throughout the Pacific and Indian Oceans. It uses its elongated mouth to feed on coral polyps. The large, black spot on its back resembles an eye and serves to confuse predators. The Bennet's Butterflyfish is popular with aquarium hobbyists because of its bright colors.
