This is the spot to get help with snorkeling identification of fish, creatures and corals. Post a description or a picture you got and our community will help you with identifying it. If you have identified something unique and interesting yourself, share it here along with a picture, name and description.

With your question, provide as much information as you can so that we can get an identification.

Your submission will get shared with us and our site followers on this website. That way lots of people can have a chance to figure it out.
