Shrimpfish

Shrimpfish, also called Razorfish, are four small species of tropical marine fish in the subfamily Centriscinae of the family Centriscidae. They are found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

Shrimpfish are nearly transparent and flattened from side to side with long snouts and a sharp-edged belly. It is from this and their shrimp-like appearance that their name is derived.

Adult shrimpfish are 8 in (20 cm) long, including their snout.
