Atlantis Aquatic Museum
Nassau, Bahamas
Although we saw many of this type of fish
while snorkeling, I was unable to make the
underwater capture I had hoped for.
None of the fish here have been cloned or copied/pasted.

I like this formation and their color.
Cool capture. #6442175

Vicki L. Filippin September 11, 2008

Thank you John & Christine! Seeing them at the museum wasn't nearly as thrilling as seeing them while snorkeling, but they moved so fast that I couldn't get a decent underwater shot.
Just like humans, I think it's kewl that even though they are the same kind of fish, they are of all different colors, shapes, and sizes....and yet they still can live in peace and harmony. #6442189
