An adult male Sergeant Major (Abudefduf saxatilis) displaying the dark male 'guard' phase, swims over a coral reef at the Conch Wall dive site off the coast of Key Largo, Florida. This dark phase is normally present in males who are guarding a brood of eggs, which in this case are just below where the image was taken.
