Description Distribution: Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans. Protrusible mouth. Snout elongated in the genus Gomphosus. Most jaw teeth with gaps between them; teeth usually jutting outward. Spines in dorsal fin usually 8-21; soft rays 7-14. Three spines (very rarely 2) in anal fin; soft rays 7-14. Scales generally of large to moderate size; cycloid. Scales in lateral series 25-80, but may be over 100 if small. Lateral line interrupted or continuous. Vertebrae 23-41. To 3 m maximum size, only 6 cm for many. Shape, color and size very diversified. Most species are sand burrowers; some small species remove ectoparasites of larger fishes. Species of Coris are particularly popular aquarium fishes. [details]
