[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Blue Tang or Blue Surgeonfish (Acanthurus coeruleus) captured in shallow water. It's one of my first underwater photographs because I recently bought a cheap water-proof camera for holidays at Cuba. Although the quality of the pictures is not as usually I was satisfied by the results. I was impressed how many different species of fish you can see in depth of less than 1 meter.
One interesting fact of Blue Tang is that the colours of juvenile is yellow and changes to blue when becoming adult.

Thank you, Roland, for this invaluable contribution of marine life. Always
especially appreciate these photographs so complex that for many reasons
I understand capture underwater species. A big hug.

Hello Roland,
As you already stated the overall quality is not what you normally post, but considering this is a compact camera it looks pretty nice to me. Your fish reminds me of(Dora)in the kids movie(Finding Nemo). I have ten young grandchildren, so you know what movies I get to watch over and over....:)
The light blue color is very pretty, I especially like the dark blue outline on the dorsal fine, tail, and lower fins. Very nice! TFS.
