Bignose Unicornfish


The Bignose Unicornfish can grow up to 55cm in length and is found on the steep outer slopes of reefs thoughout the northern coast of Australia and up into Asia. They feed on zooplankton. These shots were captured on the steep reef surrounding Sipadan Island in Sabah, formerly Borneo. It's quite a spectacular fish with its elongated tail filaments and electrifying colour.


  1. It really is an amazing looking fish, I like the last image because there's no distractions from the electric blue outline. Great pictures.

  2. How beautiful. Not a fish I have ever heard of, one I would love to watch though, looks positively angelic.
