Photo take at -35 ft on a Caribbean Reef. Beautiful butterflyfish swim nest to the reef lucking for lunch. Four-eyed butterflyfish are deep-bodied and laterally compressed, with a single dorsal fin and a small mouth with tiny, bristle like teeth. The body is light grey, sometimes with a yellowish hue, and dark forward-pointing chevrons. The ventral fins are yellow. The species gets its common name from a large dark spot on the rear portion of each side of the body. This spot is surrounded by a brilliant white ring, resembling an eye. A black vertical bar on the head runs through the true eye, making it hard to see. Wikipedia.
Found on the coral reefs from Florida all the Caribbean sea , Central America, to Brazil.
