    You would know, I've never been to Hawaii. I know it's not from the Caribbean.

    It was an assumption and we all know assumptions can cause trouble.

    at risk of being ultra-pedantic I don't think these are a true Chromis but rather one of the closely related Pomacentrus or Chrysiptera species maybe Chrysiptera hemicyanea. Its a cracking shot - these little damsles are very difficult - especially if there's a coral head nearby.

    hey cohorts!...I think I took it in Palau..


    I wish we could start a "fish behaviour" thread about their personalities, how to stalk them, for photos, etc.
