Seen this gorgeous fish whilst watching the Great Barrier Reef. Can anyone tell me what kind it is please?
The lime green bodied one with purple head & tail centre shot?.

Thanks.

EDIT: It's upside down!  :damn:

It looks like an Anthias of some kind, my favourite fish :glad:

Thanks. I suspected it might be an Anthias. There are some really nice Anthias just been googling them. Cant find that particular one though.

I've got some Diamond head anthias coming this month. Really stunning fish.

The bottom image is of Longfin Anthias apparently.

The bottom image is ace.  I love anthias.  I had a few scribbled anthias for a very short period (they all dropped dead on me post quarantine  :'( )

Ah that's a shame. I had 5 lyretail Anthias. They quickly reduced to 4 but those remaining 4 lasted until my recent tank crash. One survived for only a few days.  :'(

Re. upside down pics.  Try turning your camera around the other way.  I found that if I turned mine horizontally with the volume buttons (on the right as you'd hold it vertically) to the bottom, pics upload upside down, but if I turn the vol buttons to the top edge, they upload fine.  Something to do with the code embedded in the image, which your phone deals with no problem, but web pages can't.

Give it a go.
