Biodiversity #9 – The Moorish Idol

Img banner

Biodiversity #9 – The Moorish Idol is remarkable as he is the only species in the family Zanclidae cf the butterflyfish which has 80+ species. A sensitive fish that does not fare well in captivity; accurately reflected in Finding Nemo by Gill’s constant desire to escape back to the freedom of the ocean. Don’t put fish in tanks in homes. Put the tank on your back and go visit them at home.
