The FourEye Butterflyfish, or Chaetodon capistratus, inhabit coral rich areas of lagoon reefs and seaweed reefs, in shallow, clear water, and are, like most butterflyfish, carnivores. It feeds primarily on coral polyps, sea anemones, tubeworms, and algae. The FourEye butterflyfish is very common in all of the warm tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean, ranging from Indonesia to North and South America. They can grow up to 6 inches in length, and are one of the most common types of butterflyfish.
