Blackwedged Butterflyfish Video Stock Footage

It grows to a maximum of 20 cm (nearly 8 in) long. Its shape is reminiscent of longsnout butterflyfish, though the snout is not as extremely prolonged and the pattern is very different. The body is white with a series of narrow vertical dark grey lines and bright yellow and orange over the back, dorsal fin, anal fin and caudal fin. There are two well-defined black saddles on the back, and as usual the characteristic black eye-band of Chaetodon is present. The blackwedged butterflyfish is found on the reef edge and upper slope. It prefers current-prone habitats 1–20 m deep. It mainly feeds on invertebrates. Learn more about Blackwedged Butterflyfish
