Black Bar Filefish (Pervagor janthinosoma)

This secretive fish is a tropical visitor often found within the aquatic reserve, hiding amongst cunjevoi and seaweed on the rocks. They dislike bright lights making it hard to get a good photograph. They often hang around in pairs and if you see them in the open they have gorgeous hues of the rainbows, rich blue lines in the ventral region turning to green, yellow and orange towards the tail. One of my favourite fish to find in CTBAR.
