Platax batavianus - T.B. (S)
Platax batavianus, commonly known as the Humpback batfish, is a very large batfish, which is only suitable for the largest home tanks and zoo's. As juveniles they've a lot of vertical white stripes on a black body and long fins with filaments Although very extravagant looking, this is actually meant as camouflage and blends very well with the crinoids they're associated with in the wild. As they get older (and move to deeper waters) they become mostly silvery with a few broad dark vertical bands and some yellow in the fins. Compared to the other Platax spp. they are more elongated and have a hump above their mouth.
