The longspine squirrelfish is a beautiful, brightly coloured species. The body accentuates its charming silvery-red, irregular, thorny scales and its golden orange stripes from head to tail. They have a streamlined body with a distinctive dorsal fin jutting up at the rear end, with a white spot located at the top of each dorsal spine. The longspine squirrelfish usually ranges from 12-25cm in length. This species has a relatively large eye. There are no clear distinctions between male and female longspine squirrelfish. They are distributed along the south-eastern coast of the United States to northern South America and Brazil. They inhabit shallow coral reefs in the Caribbean for example Trinidad and Tobago and Bermuda.
