Santiago Estrada ANGEL IN BLUE D60 Nikon 85mm micro S & S housing YZ 17 x 2 TTL iso 200 f16 1/100 SANTIAGO ESTRADA - SANTA MARTA - COLOMBIA

Ron Silver Appears to be a juvenile Blue Angelfish, Holacanthus bermudensis.

Santiago Estrada holacanthus ciliaris is caribe Colombia.... :)

Ron Silver Thanx,Santiago. I did not think this was a Queen Angelfish as I did not see much yellow around the pectoral fin. In addition, the mid-body blue bars are straight in the Blue Angelfish while the bars are curved in the Queen Angelfish.

Santiago Estrada ron thank you very much for your notes in Colombia we call Angel Queen, this is a jubenil, Annex I of this fish adult
