The Goldbar Wrasse

A goldbar wrasse in Kenya's marine park

Darting between corals and rocky outcrops in the shallow lagoon, the strikingly noticeable goldbar wrasse gets its name from the golden yellow vertical line that starts from the beginning of its dorsal fin near the head, and ends down by its pelvic fin.  
The most unique feature about this fish is that its only found in the western Indian Ocean and makes for a nice addition to a snorkelers, scuba divers or fish watchers marine checklist.
