This is my photo of fish. We call this kind of fish as "kurapo". A bony kind of coral fish that is usually catch in the stony part of the sea. I love the color of pink, rusty, brown, orange and yellow. The fish is dangerous because of the sting. I just love to take the photo of the kurapo because of the beauty of color combination and the vibrant of beauty of the fish. I just don't know the English term of this fish. Have you seen this kind of fish?

That's a very unique fish - it looks like some seashell. How big is this kind of fish and is it edible?

@ilocosboy Oh, too small indeed and you'll be in danger of being hurt by its fins or bones. I guess it's not worth eating LOL!
