Scuba diver silhouette
Also known as Coral Razorfish, Longspined Razorfish, Jointed Razorfish, Shrimpfish, Striped Shrimpfish, Coral Shrimpfish and Snipefish. Found in groups in fan and whip coral and sea grass beds. Colour can vary to match surroundings.
Shrimpfishes swim in groups with head down with synchronized movements: when one turns they all turn. They often shelter in rich coral patches, fan and whip coral and sea grass beds.
This pufferfish appears to have gotten alarmed: it has inflated to an inedible ball.
