Fish ID Friday – Goldface Toby

10 June 2016

I like so many of the fish that I see diving, and always enjoy photographing them, but I’m useless at recognising what they are underwater, so I’m going to start a new project as part of this blog – Fish Identification Friday.  Starting at random with the fish below, taken on the South Coast of Grand Cayman.  They flit around and are hard to pin down, but I managed to get this one under decent lighting in a little overhang of the reef.  I believe he’s a Toby of some sort, part of the puffer fish family.  My book on Reef Fish of the Caribbean suggests this to be a Goldface Toby, Canthigaster jamestyleri, so that will fit for now.  Let me know if I’m wrong!
