Engage in Nature, get closer with SCUBA

Check out this pair of white spotted filefish I got to record using a simple GoPro on my recent trip to the Turks and Caicos. These fish can often be tricky to get close to but thanks to this pair being engrossed in one of their preferred foods, this tasty sponge provided an opportunity for me to film them. What is interesting is that, like with many reef fish they are able to change colour patterns. Here, one has the standard white spots, said to be in the white spotted phase and the second one demonstrates the orange phase. Also notice how the tail fin is not used for propulsion and acts more like a rudder for steering. Neat encounter!
