What an interesting fish. How big do they grow to be on average. When something interests me. I'm an information sponge. It looks like this fish may have a horn off the top of his head as well? It may be vegetation behind him. He appears to have a slight transparent aspect to him? A beautiful shot of beautiful shades of greens and tears. I would think the fishy tropical bacteria maybe a fungus as well could cause a rampant infection if skewered by that horn. Even human bites can cause massive tissue damage requiring surgery , debridement and IV antibiotics. And bites that puncture can really hurt. Regardless, we're not here to discuss medicine. Thank you for sharing you pic and informative info.

    thanks a lot again kari;
    he has a horn on top of his head,, therefore he is called unicorn;

    at all transparent, just a strange light effect in the water, with a slight mirror effect

This is a really cool photograph of this fish. Sounds like you would want to keep your distance! The fish almost looks translucent (I have never seen this species before). Thank you for sharing.

It's easy to see how the Unicorn Tang got its name. This is such a clear image underwater . This fish just shimmers, it's really quite beautiful as well as very interesting to view. Well focused with perfect exposure, the colors and tones appear natural. Well composed in natural surroundings , well,presented with informative notes!

I never heard of or have seen a Unicorn Tang. I have seen Yellow Tangs, but this guy is wicked cool!
Love his soft transparent blue like coloring and the fine details and clarity you managed to get on this Unique fish.
Nice work Fred :)

A beautiful fish and a very fine photo. I have never shot under water and wonder if it is necessary to use a flash. Great colors and sharp detail in the fish and a very nice reef background.

    thanks again;
    flash is a must when diving:
    below 2 meters, everything will be ble without a flash

Fred,
A beautiful underwater picture on this Unicorn Tang watching you out of the corner of it's eye the light glowing on the back of it's left front fin while it's body looks almost transparent. Beautiful composition framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.
Susan
