African Butterfly Fish Profile

Not sure if this is in the right place.. but on our Butterfly fish profile, what on earth is the last photo? It doesn't look like an ABF to me, and there's starfish in the water. Is this some sort of mistake?

Thanks Olympia.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I was extremely confused. I wonder what kind of fish that was. Saltwater butterflies are these big yellow fish, the photo was actually somewhat similar to a freshwater butterfly, probably why it got through. It's been there for a while and bugged me, finally decided to bring it up.
