Threadfin Butterflyfish | Chaetodon auriga 

The Threadfin Butterflyfish does most of its foraging among coral rubble, in reef crevices, and on sand, and will often associate with foraging goatfishes. As the goatfishes disturb the substrate, they expose worms that the butterflyfish then attacks with relish.  x

Copperband Butterfly fish | Chelmon rostratus

“Butterfly fish are diurnal animals which means that they are feeding during the day and resting in the coral during the night. Most species of butterfly fish feed on the plankton in the water, coral and sea anemones and occasionally snack on small crustaceans . Those butterfly fish fish that primarily feed on the plankton in the water are generally the smaller species of butterfly fish and can be seen in large groups. The larger species of butterfly fish are fairly solitary or stay with their mating partner.”
