Melon Butterflyfish or Indian Redfin Butterflyfish



The Melon Butterflyfish or Indian Redfin Butterflyfish (Chaetodon Trifasciatus) is a species of Butterflyfish found in the Indian Ocean from East Africa to Western Java, in coral-rich lagoons and semi-protected seaward reefs. Small juveniles are secretive and hide in corals. Growing to a maximum of 5.9″ inches long, the monogamous adults swim in pairs and may be territorial and aggressive to other Butterflyfish.

Melon Butterflyfish feed exclusively on coral polyps, particularly of Pocillopora. They are oviparous.
