I can't believe

I haven't posted this picture before, as its one of my all time favourites. I love the way this sabre squirrelfish seems to loom out of the gloom. Its one of the few underwater pix of mine where I'm completely happy with the lighting.

Great photo! Did you take this one at night? I don't dive, but I have snorkeled at night, which is when I've seen these sort of fish.

You're half-right t.beth. Squirrel and soldierfish are typically nocturnal and only come out at night. This one was taken in the day time however (but in deeper water where the light was less) and I found the fish hiding away under that overhang until night fell
