Product description:


The kikakapu (ornate butterflyfish) is easily recognized by its pattern of six orange stripes on the body and black and yellow bars on the head. Between the eyes is a greyish triangular mark, and there are two black bars on the tail.

This colorful fish is found in clear waters and coral-rich areas of seaward reefs. Adults are almost always found in pairs, while the juveniles are solitary. Kikakapu feed exclusively on coral tissue.

Here, one takes time out from his meal to pose for the underwater camera of Randy Miller.
