Fish on a tripod

Tripod fish live on the ocean floor. They dig in their 3 long fins into the sand—like a tripod—as they await their prey.

That in and of itself is interesting but they are most magnificent when they are first born and they glide through the water with an angelic, ethereal halo of colour. It must be seen to be truly appreciated.
