As colourful as their feathered namesakes, parrotfish are shy of allowing divers to venture close. This parrotfish was settling to sleep amongst the coral, about to hide from its nocturnal predators. At night, before they sleep they cover themselves with a mucous bubble to hide their scent and I managed to get this glimpse of fin through the coral before the bubble was finished. Parrotfish are found across the top of Australia, including Ningaloo Reef, Rowley Shoals and out to Christmas and Cocos Keeling Islands.
