Dear FishBase Forum users,

Welcome to our new and improved site!

In the past, spammers have succeeded in making the forum unusable. Thus, in our aspiration to keep the site as simple as possible yet functional, we came up with this new version protected by a captcha system. We have checked and cleaned the database, keeping all good postings and pictures. However, note that the record numbers are tentative, we may need to change them in the coming months, and that the site is without registration at the moment. Please bear with us as we continuously develop this site to maximize service to fish enthusiasts all over the world. Feel free to comment on this version and make suggestions for improvements.

Lastly, we would like to clarify that the forum is for technical comments and inquiries that need scientific responses from experts in our team or other entities/groups that wish to share their knowledge on the subject at hand. If you wish to express your thoughts about our website and/or provide comments on our work, which don't necessarily need a response, then you may use our Guestbook for that purpose.

Enjoy the forum. Ü

Our very best regards,

butterfly fish (Chaetodon) northern Buton Island, Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia
Posted on: 10/01/2018 12:45:05

Can anyone confirm the identity of this butterfly fish (see attached image)? It closely resembles the Pacific double-saddle butterflyfish (Chaetodon ulietensis) but the tail has a white band that I've not observed in any other online pictures of this species. I took this picture at the Ereke fish market in northern Buton Island, Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia. I didn't have a ruler with me at the time, but this specimen was about 7 cm long. I would like to confirm the fish's identity as part of my work on a local language dictionary. Thanks much. I hope you can get the forum back to where it is working for the scholarly community.
