The Saddle Butterflyfish is named after the saddle-shaped black patch on its back which makes it look half-eaten to predators, especially with the extended string of dorsal fin. It is native to tropical reefs of the Indo-Pacific from Sri Lanka to Hawaii. The fish can grow to 30cm long, large for a butterflyfish.
