The Arabian Picassofish is a beautifully colored fish that inhabits lagoons and seaward reefs. It is a very territorial and wary fish, never straying far from shelter. It can be seen when scuba diving or snorkeling in the Red Sea and Persian Gulf. The markings include striking bold stripes around the eyes. The artistic look of the fish gives it its unique common name.
