Oriental Sweetlips

We met him snorkeling on the coral reef at the Felidhoo atoll to the Maldive.

These fish have big fleshy lips and tend to live on coral reefs  in the Indo-Pacific in small groups or pairs. Belongs to the order Perciformes, Haemulidae family. These fish have big, fleshy lips and tend to live on coral reefs  in the Indo-Pacific in small groups or pairs. They will often associate with other fishes of similar species; several species of sweetlips sometimes swim together. They are usually seen in clusters in nooks and crannies or under overhangs. At nightfall, they venture from their shelters to seek out their bottom-dwelling invertebrate prey, such as worm, shrimps and small crabs.
