Yellowfin goatfish (Mulloidichthys vanicolensis) shoaling over corals. This fish usually shoals during the day, but at night it heads off alone to hunt. It feeds mainly on worms and crustaceans from the seabed. It finds its prey by feeling through the seabed sand with a pair of sensitive fleshy barbels on its lower jaw. Photographed off Sipadan, Malaysia.
