Blue Hamlet in Atlantic Coral Reef
A blue hamlet has been added to our Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit!
This fish, named for its iridescent blue hue, is native to Atlantic coral reef habitats (from the Florida Keys to Mexico).
Blue hamlets are typically very shy. They spend most of their days hiding in reef crevices.
