3 seen things like this in the Red Sea and thought they were a juvenile dartfish but also check out the shortfin minidartfish (aioliops brachypterus)

4 probably silver demoiselle (neopomacentrus anabatoides)

no luck on the others though the bottom two are probably obvious if you've seen them before.

#1 is linecheecked wrasse (Oxycheilinus digrammus)

#2 is a blenny, most likely a Cirripectes species but can't tell more from this shot angle

#3 juvenile spiny chromis (Acanthochromis polyacanthus)

#4 is definitely a dragonet. Either S. morrisoni as suggested or S. bartelsi (Bartel's dragonet). A shot from the side might be more conclusive.

#5/6 not fish

Hi Dave,

 

I certainly have never seen this in other parts of the Caribbean and I never heard about it before. So thanks for the post. As to what it means ... just one more underwater riddle that keeps diving so interesting.
