.....captured this scuba diving in the Red Sea at the Coral Beach Nature Reserve of Eilat
....Red Sea Eritrean or Crown butterflyfish[Chaetodon paucifasciatus]. the Red Sea. Size up to 14 cm (0,46ft). Depth up to 30m (98,4ft)

The diurnal crown butterflyfish or redback butterflyfish with its compressed body lives in pairs or in small groups near reef flats, bays, lagoons and seaward reefs. It has black and white chevrons and a very distinctive firebrick red band over the caudal fin; yet its key identification is the reddish-yellow stripe covering the eye.



Generally speaking, a rich presence of the crown butterflyfish signals encouraging hard coral coverage on the seabed. When not in abundance, it may indicate troubled coral. It feeds on corals, crustaceans and algae.
