I find Striped Sweetlips extremely fascinating.
I’m not sure what attracts me to them.
Maybe it’s their solid strips, yellow accent, black shapes on their fins… or maybe it’s the dopey look they display.
I don’t know… but I always stop to observed them during a dive.
This short underwater clip was captured along a reef in Laamu Atoll, Maldives.
Here’s another short video featuring several different species of Sweetlips with a few fun facts.
