Comments : Another shot of the very commom but not often seen (unless you dive at night) Crescent Gunnel. Compare this photograph to the other photograph on this site of the Crescent Gunnel and you can see the wide difference in coloration that this fish is capabale of. Finding these characters out in the open on a night dive is always a treat.
