Pacific Double-Saddle Butterflyfish
The Pacific Double-Saddle Butterflyfish or False Furcula Butterflyfish (Chaetodon Ulietensis), is a species of Butterflyfish. It flourishes in coral-rich environments in the central Indo-Pacific region. Their range extends from the Cocos-Keeling Islands to the Tuamotu Islands, and north to Japan.
Pacific Double-Saddle Butterflyfish or False Furcula Butterflyfish can reach a size of 5.9″ inches. They are white with vertical thin black lines down the body and two dark saddles on the fore and hind back, which softly grade into the background color belly-wards gradient. Immediately after the hind quarter saddle, the body and tail is bright yellow with a black spot on the caudal peduncle. The dorsal fin has a streak of yellow from the crown of the head to the tail. Like most of its relatives this species displays a black eye band like a mask. As in most Butterflyfish, the Pacific Double-Saddle Butterflyfish or False Furcula Butterflyfish is prone to blanching at night and when startled.
