Swordtail jawfish

The Swordtail jawfish lives in the reef-associated, marine environment.

Swordtail Jawfish & maybe even Manatee or a pod of Dolphin! Clearwater also has some interesting wrecks full of fish & is the only place I've had the exhilarating experience of diving in a dense "bait-ball". More
