Lined Butterflyfish

Lined Butterflyfish, Chaetodon lineolatus. They have these on the reef in Hawaii were they live on little critters and crustaceans. This one was at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. They have a no flash policy so most of the photos were taken at ASA1600 which means they're pretty grainy and pretty dark. Still, it's not too bad considering.

I love love love the butterfly fish, I had one in my saltwater tank for about the last 2 years, along with a humu humu and 2 puffers... until last week when my house sold and I had to donate all my fish to the local hospital, the good news here is that I am on my way to paradise!!! In november we will be moving to Oahu, where I can get beautiful native fish and snorkel all the time and see them in real life... I am so excited.... if you ever make it to Oahu, be sure to let me know!
