Whitebar Surgeonfish

Acanthurus leucopareius


These fish were dark colored with vertical white stripes on their face and tail. They were fairly large.


They were on a coral reef near the edge.


All these fish appeared on the reef around sunset, possibly to feed, but when I was there they were still hovering near the deep water.
