Also known as Long-nosed Filefish, Orangespot Filefish, Orange-spotted Filefish, Coral Filefish, Harlequin Filefish, Beaked Leatherjacket and Beaked Leatherjacket Filefish.
Found in pairs or small groups, in clear lagoons and inner reefs with rich coral growth, often in branching corals.
They feed exclusively on Acropora polyps.
Length - 10cm
Depth - 4-30m
Filefish can alter their colour and pattern to match their surrounds and so deter predators.
Although closely related to the Triggerfish, their "trigger spine" cannot be locked into place.
