Heres another Spine-cheek for you Alison. I like these guys too as they have such great contrasting colours between them and their host Anemone.

These pics look so amazing to the point that they dont even look real.

Great set Mark - aren't the little buggers addictive? Somehow - I didn't manage to burn several hundred frames on anenome fish this trip; seems like I didn't see as many this time. But here are a few I could lay my hands on:smiley20:

This was a lucky capture. This is a mated pair of mismatched fish. One is a white bonnet anemone fish. It is a hybrid between the orange and orange finned anemone fish. It is mated with another orange finned. I wonder what THEIR offspring are going to look like?
