The yellowtail fusilier is a pelagic marine fish, widespread in the Asian-West Pacific.
It is diurnal and lives in large groups, often mixed in with other species. It can be often found around coastal patches of reefs and upper edge of steep slopes, in silty areas with reduced visibility.
The body of the yellowtail is fusiform and it has a yellow forked caudal fin, hence the name.
It can grow up to 40 cm (16 in).
