Butterfly Fish are small,
thin disk-shaped fish with pointy noses. Many of these fish
have a dark band that run vertically through their eyes. This
is used to camouflage them in the coral reefs where they live.
Most Butterfly fish mate for life and raise their young together.

The facts collected to describe
each fish were pulled from various sources over the internet by Sealight Gallery's
staff. Sealight wants to acknowledge that we did not write any of the material
in regard to the descriptions, but we found the information collected fascinating.
We hope that in reprinting it readers will be inspired by it to save and preserve
the ocean and all of her glory.
