Great sharpness, clarity and colour in this shot Tet - very well captured, it's as if you were in the aquarium with the fish!!
Well done

Hi Tet,

its a copperband butterfly fish. (Chelmon rostratus)

Thats not a bad capture, fish are hard , low light and they tend to dart around, you did pretty good to get a clear shot without the reflection of the glass.

Furhter info about this species.

The Copperband Butterfly is one of the few Butterflies that is commonly distributed for the home aquarium. These exquisite fish are silvery-white in color with orange vertical bands, as well as a "false eye" at the rear of their dorsal. The Copperband has an elongated mouth which it uses to pick at coral heads, including nuisance Aiptasia.

The family of Butterflyfish get their name from their behavior of fluttering around the reef. These fish typically have rather round and thin bodies. They are very colorful and some have extended snouts which they use to reach worms entrenched in the reef.

They get to around 2-3 inches in length.

Thanks for posting.

Kind regards
