Fish in the waters around the small Puerto Rican island Palominitos
@Marta RubioTexeira, @Elsa Thanks, you've convinced me. I've changed the ID.
Marta is right here.. Needlefish are silvery and do not exhibit this mimicry (of the soft coral) behaviour.. The stripes and mouthshape are two characteristic traits of trumpets :)
@Marta RubioTexeira What is the best way to tell the difference, what to look for?
I think it is a young trumpetfish, not a needle.
