Pyramid Butterflyfish, Hemitaurichthys polylepis, at Christmas Island, 2010.
Half way through the clip you'll see a small fish with a red back and black tail, cleaning the larger Pyramid Butterflyfish. This fish looks similar to the Redlipped Cleaner Wrasse, Labroides rubrolabiatus, a species not recorded from Australian waters.
