Friday Fish: Albula vulpes

bonefish Albula vulpes
I have reverted to my old method of choosing a Friday Fish: open my fish taxonomy book to a random page, and read about orders and families until a genus or species name appears. This is the very widespread, tropical bonefish, though it may be a species complex with several cryptic species.

Very shiny and very sleek, like a big sardine, or a large expanse of tin foil shaped like one.
