…with these adorable and spooktacular costumes!

Ok, so I may or may not have resorted to some photoshop for these getups, but we already torture our dogs and cats with ridiculous outfits, why leave out our piscine companions? Here’s what we imagine our tank inhabitants might opt for if they had the means.

Well what would a delicate little reef fish be if they could be anything for a day? Why not the most omnipotent apex predator of the sea? Theme music not included.


King for the Day! Gramma loreto gets punny.

This Royal Gramma opts for a little play on his name with some gilded accessories.

Another one who couldn’t resist a good pun, the Bandit Angelfish is dedicated to his incarceration, decorating his environment for added effect. Gotta love the stage presence!

This rare Sunset Wrasse keeps it simple with just a few props for his angelic attire. One thing to remember when masquerading 400 feet below the surface is you want to keep your wardrobe light – heavy fabrics and accessories will wear you down under that sort of  pressure!

Don’t get weighed down this Halloween! Keep it light, fun and safe. And please, this goes without saying, don’t attempt to dress up your fish. They will hate you.

    I'm a New York Reef Enthusiast and Fish Nerd, amateur photographer, dog lover, beer brewer/drinker, cocktail mixer, semi-seasoned chef, Prosecco Indulging, lightly foul-mouthed, slightly antagonistic, sorta-artistic, wordy bookworm of a girl. Dog mommy of three, an Abyssinian dubbed "Mau", plus one Dwarf Cuttlefish and a few Clarions. I have a tattoo of an Octopus with flowers on my rear. I ride my bike to the beach and sip bourbon with a good (reef) book while watching the waves. I like to think I'm witty and charming - but I'll let you decide.
