Adult Queen Angelfish, Holocanthus ciliaris

Good morning from the Caribbean, I have one of the hands-down most colorful fish in Curacao for you all today called a Queen Angelfish or Holocanthus ciliaris for you fish people out there. This beauty here was easily over a foot and a half in length and barely slowed down for me to take a photo. I shot this at the Superior Producer (ship wreck) at around 100 feet and if I remember correctly I was only able to get a few shots due to these fish being afraid of their own shadows! As juveniles, these fish are what we call “little reef gems” and are a major joy to find. I think in the years we have been here I have only found about a dozen of these little things and most times never had the right lens. MORE
