Yap Island Mandarin Fish

Yap Island Mandarin fish are a little difficult to shot. You need to be in the right place at the right time. The Males seek out the females in 8 to 12 feet of water at just about sun down. They are a little shy except went they find the right lady. The two perform a 5 second "little spin" then dive back down into the protection of the reef. One of the more colorful fish in the Micronesia area of the western Pacific Ocean.
