The Swallowtail Sea Perch is a very common schooling fish.
"These orange and light pink fish have long pectoral fins and a split tail like a swallow's. One is lovely, but the sight of large groups gathered around coral or reefs is breathtaking."
Found schooling in medium-sized groups, they swim slowly about in rocky areas. They like being fed.
- These small fish are actually a member of the anthias genus, meaning that they are related to fish such as the Purple Queen, Stocky Anthias, and Sunset Anthias.
