Is this a pigfish?

Molasses Reef, buoy M-21, Key Largo, Florida, June 12, 2011, depth 28 feet, bottom temperature 81 degrees.

Thank You,

Yes Pigfish

Looking closely at the pattern of scales on the back and tail, I would say yes this is a photo of a pigfish.  You can compare with this photo at http://www.mbara.org/PhotoAlbumDisplay.cfm?PhotoID=2535.  The fins on your photo look a little blue, but that could be the lighting or photo processing.

 

Thank you

I have been checking several times a day.  I knew, if I was patient, a knowlegeable person would help.  I am glad it was you.  Thank you.

I Photoshop almost all my photos.  My camera takes horrible underwater pictures.  And, I suspect, Photoshop made the fins blue.

Thank You,

Marty
