This is the largest of Filefish in the species.
Found singly on coastal reefs along slopes and drop-off's.
They feed on invertebrates and algae.

Depth - 5-80m
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.
