Favorite Fancy Fish Friday


The psychedelic Mandarinfish resides in my reef. He was actually the first fish I illustrated for my underwater retreat. This is one of my favorite fish and a must see when I visit the aquarium.

Do you have a favorite must-see fish?

My illustration is based on Luc Viatour’s photo on Wikipedia.

Share! It will make you happy, trust me.

  1. In the summer, we take “water walks” in Long Island Sound, and love it when a blue fish swims past, which they often do! We're walking with the fish …

  2. Beautiful! My favorites to visit are actually the turtles. Turtles (and tortoises) amaze me.

  3. Now that's a fancy fish. My kids will love it. I'm going to print it so we can draw and color this weekend.

  4. What a beautiful fish! I love the vibrant colors and shades of aqua and orange. A favorite must-see fish for me when I visit the aquarium is the clownfish. I love seeing those bright striped orange bursts of color.

  5. That is so awesome, I love the colors! Stunning.

  6. That's a beautiful fish!

  7. Love the colors! I'd love to see real, live versions of those deep-sea fish that create their own light.

    BTW, I have an award for you on my blog.

  8. Thank you.

    Jody, that fish really looks just like that. The markings and coloring is almost exact.

  9. The clown fish had been my favorite. Now it's the Mandarinfish. I absolutely LOVE this. The colors are awesome.

  10. I don't know anything about fish but I have always wanted a Koi fish in my forthcoming Zen garden in my future house.

  11. Sorry – I don't know much about fish, but this one is beautiful!

    Tag…you're it! I wish I knew how to link my blog to this comment, but I'm afraid I'm not that technologically savvy. Sorry!

  12. Stunning! I love sharks. They fascinate me.

  13. Ooooh I love this fish with all of its colors! Well done. Wouldn't that be fun to go scuba diving and see one? Cool!
