Hawaiian Longfin Anthias

Copyright 2009 by Barry Fackler

We see this bright little fish regularly at our favorite dive site, "Two Step" at Honaunau. This is a male and he boldly swims over his coral head seemingly unperturbed by the presence of divers. He has a little harem of three small females which tend to stay huddled under the coral head. This is an endemic species found only in Hawai'i and is about three inches in length. That's my wife, Betty, in the first photo.
