My neighbor installed an underwater light in our canal, in Key Largo, and many of his neighbors came to see what it attracted. These are knowledgeable, educated, marine-oriented people, fishers and divers. We saw two things we had not seen before.
1. We saw a fish with wing-like appendages, with fins on the end of each wing that look like a fan. Someone said there was also a "fan" at the end of the tail. It must have been a foot to a foot-and-a-half in length. Overall it was reminiscent of a skate or a ray. I am assuming it is some species of batfish. Any help?
2. We saw what I now think might be a flatworm, perhaps a splendid flatworm. Whatever we saw, we saw several of them, at least ten, and we have seen them for several days. They are sort of squiggly things, an inch or two long. They "swim" mostly vertically, by undulating their flexible fringes, that run along both sides of their bodies. It is very rhythmic, balletic, beautiful. They look dark brown to me, but I saw them from land; I did not see any color on the fringes, but I did not have a close-up view. Do you know what we are seeing?
