Panamic Soldierfish

Panamic soldierfishes, small, bright red, big-eyed fish, are fairly common reef inhabitants in their distribution range. Panamic, a part of the common name of this species, means that these fish are found in a geographic province of the eastern Pacific encompassing central Baja California to northern Peru. The second part of their common name comes from the swimming behavior of soldierfishes. They are frequently seen swimming in nicely organized schools that are said to resemble military formations.
