I have no idea why fish of this genus (Hypoplectus) have the common name "Hamlet." Primary lighting was a 360 flash on a wire held at upper left. Taken at a small aquarium at park visitor's center.

Neither do I, but fantastic shot! The shadow, colors, and sharpness here make for a great 3d effect- 5 stars!
