Black Durgon

Melichthys niger


Inhabits the clear waters of outer reefs, usually well above the reef in depths to 100 feet. Found through the Atlantic coasts from Massachusetts and Bermuda through the Bahamas, southern Florida, the Caribbean, and south to Brazil.


I don't think I've ever come across this fish before this dive. It was very nice to spot it.
