I also saw a fish that looked to have an angel shaped body with long fins, and looked to be black & a dark blue? It was under the coral shelf over off Tunnels in Kauia and it darted away pretty quickly so I couldn't get a photo. I've looked and looked all over the web and can't find it. Maybe it wasn't black & blue and just appeared to look that way because it was under the cover of the shelf?
On another note: My seatmate on the flight back from Lihue to Honolulu was Bethany Hamilton. She told me she was attacked of Tunnels. Had I known that I'm not sure I would have been in the water there. She's a pretty gutzy gal to be back in the water surfing. She's a very nice person and I feel fortunate to have met her while I was there and have her share her story with me.
the parrot fish was more than likely a regal parrot. The blue ones are the males, females are pinkish. And yes she is brave for going back in after that tiger took off her arm!
