Green Horseface Eartheater
This Satanoperca species has a streamlined body shape which is a silvery blue-grey colour. There are no black markings present apart from a small black spot on the upper caudal peduncle. Depending on mood this species can show a faint horizontal band on the flanks, or a series of vertical lateral bars (some forming a Y shape) or no banding pattern at all. The head area from the mouth to the back of the gill plates are covered in numerous small whitish or iridescent bluish spots, often with a reddish background. These spots are also present along the back immediately below the dorsal fin. The tips of the dorsal fin spines are black.
