Dopo una lunga ricerca sulle rive del mare ligure un bellissimo sasso adatto a un pesce...tropicale.

Venite a scoprire gli animali de Lo Zoo Di Pietra a @yachtandgarden il 19 e 20 maggio 2018 @mga_marinagenova

Il pesce dipinto su pietra è una Chaetodon auriga, conosciuto anche con il nome di pesce farfalla filamentoso è un pesce d'acqua salata appartenente alla famiglia Chaetodontidae.
È una specie molto diffusa nella regione Indopacifica dal Mar Rosso alla costa occidentale americana, alle Isole Hawaii, Marchesi e Ducie. Vive in prossimità delle formazioni madreporiche, in acque con temperatura tra i 24 e i 28 °C, prediligendo fondali sabbiosi o detritici poco profondi e il versante esterno della barriera corallina. Si incontra fino a 35 m di profondità.

Got greeted by one of my favorite species on our way down to 70m yesterday. Chaetodon tinkeri (Tinker’s butterflyfish) are one of the most curious and adorable fishes! @hollisdive @hollis_rebreathers #rebreather #ccrdiving #tecdiving #deepdiving #fish #chaetodon #butterflyfish #hawaii #kailuakona

yellow teardrop butterflyfish Chaetodon interruptus)
They occur in small groups in reef flats, clear lagoon and seaward reefs, and feed on soft and hard corals, and also on polychaetes, small crustaceans, and filamentous algae. They are usually seen at moderate depths, usually swimming in small groups.

blackback butterflyfish (Chaetodon melannotus) From East coast of Africa.
This fish grows up to 18 cm (c. 7 in) long, and may live for up to 20 years. When observed at night or when frightened, this species changes color; the dorsal portion of the body turns black except for two white patches.
It belongs to the large subgenus Rabdophoruswhich might warrant recognition as a distinct genus. In this group, it appears a close relative of the Spot-tailed Butterflyfish (C. ocellicaudus) and somewhat less close to the Yellow-dotted Butterflyfish (C. selene). These are all of oval shape, silvery with yellow fins and snout, ascending diagonal stripes, and black markings around the eyes, on the caudal peduncle, and sometimes on the back. Next closest seem the Saddle Butterflyfish (C. ephippium) and the Dotted Butterflyfish (C. semeion), but these are already so distant that their ancestors must have diverged from those soon after the Rabdophorus lineage started to diversify.
These oviparous fish are common on staghorn coral thickets, they are less seen on exposed parts of reefs. Black-backed butterflyfish are generally found between 4 and 20 m deep, usually solitary, in pairs during the breeding season. Juveniles are more commonly found inshore, in pairs or traveling in small groups.It feeds primarily on the polyps of soft and hard corals. The Black-backed Butterflyfish is easy to maintain in the aquarium by the standards of its genus.

The Raccoon Butterfly fish (Chaetodon lunula), or kīkākapu are found in the shallow reefs of Hawaii and throughout the Indo-Pacific. This reef associated species has a broad diet and prey on different kids of small invertebrates. 🐠 🌊

Not the prettiest butterflyfish, but I kinda dig it. Chaetodon trichrous. Endemic to Polynesian islands across the Pacific.
