Three Spotted Drums

AvatarBy Barry Brown 5 years agoNo Comments

Good morning all, so what’s better than finding one Spotted Drum?? That’s right, finding two, and what’s better than finding two Spotted Drums, the answer would be finding THREE!!! Some of my underwater photo friends out there know not only how cool it is to find these fish in numbers but to have the chance to get them all in one photo, it just plain doesn’t happen every day!! These are for sure some of the coolest fish in the sea and for sure the most graceful and gentle.

These odd shaped fish are normally found by themselves and tend to pick an area of the reef and stay there for an extended amount of time, they don’t seem to move around much. These cool fish are  frequently observed during the day under ledges or near the opening of small caves, at depths between 3 and 30 meters (98 ft), where it swims in repetitive patterns. A nocturnal feeder, it leaves the protection of its daily shelter at night to feed mainly on small crustaceans and Polychaete worms.
