triplefin (#50A, added 8 Jan '98)

Time after time I find that the most beautiful creatures on the reef are the smallest and most inconspicuous. How many divers overlook the true beauty of the reef, spending far too much time looking for the obvious large animals or moving creatures? This colorful Bigmouth Triplefin is less than an inch in length. The name triplefin comes from its three dorsal fin configuration.

Helcogramma sp. (?)
