I recently went on a diving/snorkeling trip in the Florida Keys. I took a lot of pictures, and I was able to identify everything except for two fish. These two were taken while snorkeling off of Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas National Park.
The first one seems pretty normal looking... it is yellow and white with two black stripes going across its body. It also has a black spot near its tail. I have attached two photographs.
The second one is really weird looking. It was on the bottom and seemed to lie flat on its side. Not sure if this is a strange fish or if it is simply a fish that is nearly dead. It looks as if it has no tail, which makes me wonder if it's a fish that is badly wounded and just clinging onto life.
Any help identifying these two creatures is much appreciated.
