I start "Schools of fish" week with this image of colorful school of painted sweetlips. These bright fish has one annoying behavior pattern - once you approach them from the front they instantly turn their back on you ! So to take this picture I had to employ "assistant" - my brother Alex, helping me to surround school from two sides and make it more difficult for it to decide where to look :-)
