Fusiliers. View from below of a mixed shoal of fusilier fish against the sunlit water surface. This shoal comprises lunar (Caesio lunaris) and Suez (Caesio suevicus) fusiliers. These fish shoal for protection from predators. They both reach a maximum length of around 40 centimetres, although the Suez fusilier is generally a little smaller. They feed on zooplankton. The Suez fusilier inhabits the tropical waters of the Red Sea and Arabian Sea. The lunar fusilier has a slightly wider distribution, covering reefs throughout the Indian and western Pacific Oceans.
