Hawaiian Spotted Toby
The guide books says these little fish are aggressive to other fish, but can't do much to swimmers. The aggressive nature is why they are easy to see for snorkelers.
Species: Canthigaster jactator (whitespotted toby)

Female Bird Wrasse

didn't school.

Schooling Fish

Coming, going, you tell me - these fish (like me) were being dragged in the current and (unlike me) stopping
on each ebb to chew one whatever was on the rocks.

Boxfish Swimming By

There are a fair number of Boxfish at Kahalu'u Beach and they are so curious that
they seem agressive - they will follow the humans around.

Yellow Tang's Feeding

There are a few types of coral.  The brain coral is fun but there is also a rounder coral that is common.
Where bare rock is exposed sea urchins are often present.

Yellow Tang's Feeding in a School

This was at the place of refuge - the fish were less tame than Kahalu'u Beach, but the background
was much more interesting and the water was clearer.

Species: Zebrasoma flavescens (yellow tang)

Carp

In Smith's Paradise.  I really liked these little fish.  As you walk around the pond
you can see ripples form, but the water is too murky to see why.  Only when you reach
the edge do you see these little faces peering up from the dark, wondering if your
bringing food.
