Caption: Five-lined cardinal fish. Shoal of juvenile five- lined cardinal fish (Cheilodipterus quinquelineatus). These nocturnal fish are found associated with reefs in the Indo-West Pacific. During the day the fish hide in crevices in the reef or among the stinging spines of sea anemones. They can grow up to 12 centimetres in length. They are predatory fish, feeding on small crustaceans, gastropods and fish, and have large fang-like canine teeth. Photographed in the Red Sea.
