Beaked Filefish (Orangespot Filefish) (Leatherjacket filefish)

Here's a fish that's both ugly and beautiful. This fish helps to iilustrate why Jen and Dan went to the trouble of providing the scientific names for most of the images; If you look this guy up in three different books, you'll find three different common names. Often we just pick the name we like best.
