More odd fishes and cool stuff
Deep sea fish are often 'red' fish, in that they have red, orange, and purple coloration, since red is the first color to get stopped by water...at depth these fish are close to black, but on the surface or in the shallows a cool array of sunset colors.
First I added two Cardinal fish...popular aquarium fish all over.The Banggai cardinalfish is a popular aquarium fish but int he wild has a very limited range, on reefs around the Banggai Islands in Indonesia. It is not red, but just interesting in general.
A relative is more orange, the Pajama or Spotted Cardinalfish (fyi, they don't look like the bird or the churchman, wonder if they are important in something?), which has some orange on the fins.
A redder fish family is the Squirrelfish (big eyes = squirrel-like maybe?), which have scales and stripes, and are again a popular saltwater reef fish family. Drew two common types: Squirrelfish of the Atlantic, and the Hawaiian Squirrelfish of the Pacific. The Hawaiian model, like the Hawaiian shirt is a bit more colorful.
I also added the deep water Queen Snapper, a purplish-reddish-Atlantic fish caught in water from a few hundred to thousand feet deep.
The same fishes are on patterns and decor also at my Spoonflower site (or soon will be).
Tight lines, calm seas, and BE SAFE!
