cool looking fish! Did you catch them off the beach or on a boat?

I'd feel bad about the first one.....until he was filleted and breaded and deep-fried. Mmmmmmm ;)

where did you find these pics??All of them except the last two cichlids are native to the meditteranean.I live in Cyprus and if you go snorkelling here you will see all of them at once at huge numbers.They are so common that every cypriot even knows their common names

I've been fishing in Mani (below Sparta). Hehe, I know the 4th fish is poisonous, that's why my fingers aren't touching its fins! Haha! I think its called Draxos.

You have a good eye, spotting marine fish :)

Do you remember what the others are called? I know the red one is scarros and I think one of the others might be a yillo, but I'm not so sure about that :)

The last two cichlids are from my fishtank. The first one is an apistogramma from South America, and the second is a pelvichromis from Africa.

Did you eat the ones from your tank too?
They're all very pretty and I'd bet tasty. I was on vacation in the florida keys a year ago and we caught some very colorful fish too. Here's a boxfish my sister caught:

We got a few crabs who grabbed onto the bait and were pulled onto the docks too! They would flail around and fall back into the watter lol.

Its interesting that there aren't many fish in Cyprus, there are so many different kinds in Mani, soo many tasty kinds... :)

My family is from there, I go back to visit my cousins and uncles/aunts every summer.

Have you ever been there?

Fields of Blue - Nice picture! I saw a boxfish once in Trinidad. Weird looking things.

Hehe this thread might turn into a marine-fish-picture thread if a few more people add pictures :)
