Chaetodon mesoleucos Forsskal 1775, the White-Face Butterflyfish. Only found in the Red Sea and adjoining Gulf of Aden. To six inches total length. Can be aggressive toward other B/Fs. Aquarium image.

Chaetodon ocellicaudus Cuvier 1831, the Spot-Tail Butterflyfish. A look-alike species for the more commonly offered Black-Backed B/F, C. melanotus. Similar in habits, hardiness. Centered in the other's distribution in the far western Pacific. This one in Wakatobi, S. Sulawesi, Indo.

Chaetodon paucifasciatus Ahl 1923, the Red Sea Chevron, Red-Back or Crown Butterflyfish. One of my favorite fish species from my favorite diving area, the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden. An omnivore that will eat coral polyps if hungry. Expensive in the west, but worth every cent. Wild pic, Red Sea.

Chaetodon sedentarius Poey 1860, the Atlantic Reef Butterflyfish. Caribbean to coast of Brazil. Omnivore that readily adapts to aquarium conditions when started healthy.  To six inches total length. One off of Boynton Beach, FLA.
