    You can't have a scale pattern with dragonets they're scaleless.

    Though I'm sure the aspiring mermaid or merman would forgo the whole "sleeping in a cocoon of their own mucus" ordeal.

    So cute! You know what the name means, right? It's Hawaiian for: "the Fish that grunts like a pig!"

    This wrasse has such cool face markings that I think it would be awesome if someone made a tail and then continued some of the markings with body paint all the way up to the face.

    There are so many awesome fish in this thread, and so few I know of. I'm just glad I was able to contribute at least one good fish.

    So I decided to do today's fish still on the wrasse theme.. they are all so amazing. So I'm gonna focus on one group of wrasse and post pics of a couple species since there are so many in the group and WOW are they varied!!! SO BEAUTIFUL. They are called "flashers" cause they have beautiful, colorful displays where they flash their fins and intensify their colors! Amazing!!

    well, I am gonna post the next again since I wanna keep this going! I love seeing people's favorite fish!
    Now, as I was looking up the wrasse that green52 posted, I found this one: it's called the African Creole Wrasse.. and I did a google on the common name and it's scientific name and there were only 2 pics I could find easily, and it's sad, cause it's cool! It immediately jumped out at me for the loooong caudal filaments (which I love ANY trailing filaments on fins...) Otherwise, I thought it seemed a bit dull, but then I noticed that it's hindparts are a dark scale (almost blackish) but the top of the first half of the fish SEEMS to be covered in highly reflective bright greenish scales that are such a nice contrast. Whatdya'll think?
