The Yellow-Banded Sweetlips or Oblique-Banded Sweetlips (Plectorhinchus lineatus) is a medium-size bony fish found on many reefs around the Indo-Pacific region. It's often seen from quite shallow water down to depths of 30-40 metres. It's not to be confused with the Oriental Sweetlips, which has more-defined & horizontal stripes.
