Husbandry

Hollard, 1855

Very special thanks for the first photo of Aluterus heudelotii to Kevin Bryant. Kevin has taken this photo at Florida and and he added the following funny post under his photo:

"Ross Robertson will kick my ass if I ever fail to include a tail in a shot, again."

Dr. Ross Robertson also supports reeflex.net.

The Dotterel filefish feed on algea, seaweeds, seagrasses and other aquatic plants.
