We just finished a vacation in the South Pacific out of Tahiti and during our dives we saw thousands of light blue iridescent fish schooling together. The were slender and reminded me of an anthias. They were not chromis (we saw those as well). Any idea what they could have been?

Here is s better picture. It may have just been the lighting but when diving they looked blue without any other colors on them. Do you still think this is the same fish?

This is a good read.

I bought tuka/pascalus from 3 different LFS. They all have different patterns. They look slightly different depends on the region where they came from. And they do change once mature.
