Took the photo this morning from fish vendor who sell fish in our village. We bought the shells but we didn't buy that fish. In vernacular term we call that orange stripe coral fish as ampid and lunawan the blue stripe. The fish is good food as grilled or fried. It got many tiny bones that make it hard for kids. I just love the colors of the fish. The fishermen catches this with spear or arrow.

@ilocosboy I don't like fish with lots of tiny bones. That's why I hate some seafoods you can't enjoy their meats because of the bones or the shells. Sounds delicious. Are they still blue after cooking?

Is it freshwater fish? I sure hate fish with a lot of small bones. I rather have fishes that do not have small bones.

No its not, it just look expensive because of he beauty, but in the coastal villages, beauty is nothing, the important is the meat.
