squirrel fish

This family of reddish fish, with large squirrel-like eyes and a long, pronounced dorsal fin that sticks up in a way reminiscent of a squirrels tail.
Although nocturnals active, most are sighted hiding withing the shadows of the reef during the day. At night, migrate away from the reef to forage for crabs and shrimps on sand flats and seagrass beds.
