Could not find a label that identified this lazy fish. Hardly moved at all - just floated with its tail generally just touching the bottom.

Looks like a parrot fish. Many species with varying colors. They eat coral. Parrot fish poop is white coral sand excreted by the fishes.

Don't think it's a parrot fish. The mouth is too fleshy and too large. Parrot fish, as the name implies, have heavily cornified "lips" that look like a parrot's beak and are used to nip off the coral (not done by the teeth).

LeRolls - thank you for the info. I thought about the Lightsphere but I wasn't sure about it. Based on your skill, it works very well.

Thanks.

I use a Gary Fong Lightsphere which seems to work well considering I generally don't have time to setup light stands and I don't have anyone assisting me. Thought about trying the Rogue Flashbender XL as a sort of portable softbox solution.
Thank you for your info. I am surprised, obviously it works.

Thanks. At a pool with a flock, it's just a matter of watching and waiting.

I read about using this instead of a neutral density filter to tget the flow in the water. I have'nt had a chance to try it out yet. Looks to me like it works perfectly. Thanks for posting this Michael.

Your welcome, I have been reading up on it quite a bit. This is one that is a series of 15 shots 2 seconds apart in Interval Composite Mode, Average setting 1/20 each. It really is easy to use once you figure it out.
