Angelfish – Angelfish come in a variety of colors, from grey and yellow to green, blue, and yellow, to black and yellow, banded, and plain. The Angelfish pictured here is a Gray Angelfish. One identifiable feature of angelfish is the square pectoral fin. Angelfish often swim around the reefs in pairs, so if you see one, look for its mate.
Atlantic Spadefish – Spadefish get their name because of their spade-shaped body and are often silver-gray with black fading bars running vertically along their body. These are schooling fish that often circle a SCUBA diver closely.
Caribbean Spiny Lobster – The Caribbean Spiny Lobster can be identified by the shaded areas of brown and tan along the body. The back of the body often has a few dark spots while the abdomen has a few light spots. This type of lobster inhabits the reefs and hides under shipwrecks and other debris in the water.

Porgy – Porgies, commonly referred to as a pinfish, are silvery fish with a black spot on the upper base of their tail. They are often found in inshore sea grass beds and inshore reefs.
