    They are everywhere, we have them a lot in the ABC islands, if we have then and they are in Bahamas thay mean they are everywhere in the caribbean.

    It doesn't have to be directly off the coast.

    Fish can be release elsewhere, spawn and then have their spawn taken far away by Ocean Currents and Tropical Storms.
    It's how we got our Lionfish invasion all the way from Florida to South Carolina and out to Bermuda. Best guess is it started with around 12 individuals released from one Aquarium in Florida during a hurricane, sometime in the mid-90's. Now they're very well established.

    Queen angelfish is one of my favorite species. But I only found it in western atlantic. Never in Asia :)

    YOU BEAUTY !!!!!!! -I'm NOT going mad. I did see the buggar !!!!!!!!!!
    The only differences may well have been my perception rather than reality.-Ie the "flashes" were most likely the fins moving as the fish was swimming.and the tips top and bottom extended a bit further back.
    otherwise THAT is the fish I saw.

    yea mon I'm hearing ya. What I 'said" and the message I was trying to get across were two different things.
    Maybee a rephrase is in order.
    "help me prove that I wasn't seeing things" probably would be a better title.-would have saved any discussions on the effects of NN

    That's actually what I'm seeing now also. It was the first link when I googled Queen Angelfish range - or similar - don't remember the exact wording I used. So it's possible it was wrong. I can't find the reference again now either.
