A shoal of Goldbelly Cardinalfish (Ostorhinchus apogonoides previouly known as Apogon apogonoides) faces the current on a little patch reef. Although these little fish prefer to shelter in between corals and crevices during daytime, they are filmed here in the open to feed on zooplankton.
At a depth of +/-25m/82ft where these fish were filmed the water was a little murky and greenish. By treating the images with noise reducing software and changing the green in the image into a vivid blue it was possible to turn the dull look of the shot into a vibrant scene.
