Saipan Grotto

I love swimming at the grotto. How about a photo essay? Here it goes:

Can you see the monkey fish in the second to last photo? It is kind of towards the top in the center, sitting on the rock. (If the proper name for that fish isn't 'monkey fish,' please correct me.)

pretty :)

Arowanas are big fish found in the Amazon Basin and are called "monkey fish" because of their uncanny ability to jump out of the water to grab insects....

I'm not sure what sort of fish that is.

If I'm not mistaken, arowanas are a type of pirahna? Maybe I'm wrong.

These fish jump out of the water and feed off the algae on wet rocks. They are always right on the shoreline.

When they get bigger they stop jumping on the rocks, I think.
