Photographer's Note

when i went to the Tampa Aquarium, i was surprise to see this fish. It was amesome and beautiful. They are close relatives of sea horses, and have a larger bodies an lenf-like appendages.

In the pic we can see one, wich is reflected of the tank

Sea Dragons are very interesting to watch, the leafy appendages are not used for movement, the body of a sea dragons scarcely appears to move at all. Steering and turning is trough movement os tiny, translucent fins along the side of the head (pectoral fins, visible above) ans propulsion derives from the dorsal fins.
Their movement is as though and invisible hand were helping, causing them glid and tumble in peculiar but graceful patterns in slow motion
