Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish (Forcipiger flavissimus)...

    Newer Older

    The Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish (Forcipiger flavissimus), also know as the Forcepsfish, is usually bright yellow in color with a lighter-white area behind the pectoral fin. Native to Hawaii, Indonesia, Melanesia and the Maldives, the snout of the Long Nose Butterflyfish is very long and thin, and the mouth opening is quite small. Their elongated snouts as with the Copperband, distinguish them from many other Butterflyfish, and their bright coloring and hardy nature can make them wonderful pets. One interesting behavior is their tendency to occasionally swim upside down along the surface of the water. Typical size is 1 - 4 inches (3 - 10 cm).

    ISO400, aperture f/4, exposure .067 seconds (1/15) focal length 48mm
