[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Picture taken during a drift dive at Aquarium East which is one of the best dive sites in the Hurghada area if you want to take pictures of schools of fish.

A single Subtronic Gamma flash is used to lighten the school of fish.

The yellowfin goatfish is pale whitish with yellow to orange mid-lateral stripe and yellow fins. It grows up to 38cm long and inhabits reef flats, lagoons and seawards reefs. You’ll find it in depths between 1 to 50meter where it hovers in large semi-stationary schools along reef edges or near shelter of large coral mounds by day and dispersing to sand flats to feed at night. It feeds on small worms, crustaceans and invertebrades
