The Brown Scopas

Despite the somewhat drab name this fish is far from it. The juvenile has an exotic body shape with elongated dorsal and ventral fins. The body is adorned with white stripes and rich purple colouration. This one has had a nip taken out of his tail. Seldom seen in the aquatic reserve this tropical visitor is only usually seen in its juvenile form. They can be found hiding amongst weed or amongst the rocks.
