Also known as a Razorfish, this is a close up of a Coral Shrimpfish (Aeoliscus strigatus) swimming as part of the resident school at night on the muck dive at the Barura shore dive site in Anilao in the Batangas area of The Philippines.
These fish are identified from the similar looking Reef Shrimpfish (Centriscus scutatus) by the hinge in their tail (as can be clearly seen on the fish out of frame on the left), which they use to assist in changing direction.
