Rosy Razorfish

Xyrichtys martinicensis

The Rosy Razorfish can be found most likely over manatee grass sea grass beds. This pair was found in about 10 feet of water. They inhabit waters from about 6-40 feet.  The top 3 pictures are the female and the bottom two are the male. Razorfish will bury themselves in the sand to escape predators.  They will move away when approached (but not threatened) then return to the territory they are protecting.
