Friday Fish: Inermia vittata

The common name of this species seems independent of stupid sailors' farm-bred familiarities, so I'll go with it: this is the boga, a reef-associated fish of the Western Atlantic. There are only two genera, each with only one species, in this family. This is the only decent picture I could find, but it's also one of the few pictures I've put up for Friday Fish that is of more than one individual. These are school-dwelling fish, anyways, so it seems appropriate.
