Im sorry, but video content will be enabled in an upcoming update. In the mean time, take a look around our amazing images provided by the awesome community here at Whats That Fish.
Also known as Yelloweye Leatherjacket, Barred Filefish, Barred Leatherjacket, Barred Yellow Filefish, Orange-Fin Filefish and Orange-Fin File.
Found usually in pairs on clear inner reef slopes with rich coral growth.
Very shy and quickly hide when approached. (which is why the pictures are so bad!!)
They feed on invertebrates and algae.
Length - 35cm
Depth - 3-30m
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.
