If so our skilled artists will identify any unique characteristics in the photo which are later reflected in the completed paint scheme.

The flying gurnard has a magnificent presence and composure compared to other salt water fish, in fact there is no other fish that looks quite like the gurnard. These fish can be found all along the waters of Japan, Polynesia, and even finding its way in the shallow seas of Hawaii. Learn all about this Dactylopteridae family of fish from where they sleep to what they eat.
Sure they may be called flying, but they actually are very slow and “walk” along the bottoms of the ocean floor with their very wide and long fins that look like a wing span. These fins usually have a neon blue ridge, and are covered in dark spots along with their body. These spots gleam off the sunlight giving them a dazzling look as they search for their food along the sands. Their large fins can make their body look quite small, especially their tiny head with two alert eyes poking out. Their scales are somewhat heavy, which is one of the reasons why this fish is so slow. These weighty scales are used as protection since they are exceptionally thick.
Living on the bottom of the ocean, these fish make their resting spot along a seabed and come out during the day to find food to feed upon. They never leave their area and are always found on the sea floor, as their bodies are much to heavy to swim upwards. They can make for a great salt water aquarium fish as they can keep to themselves and not bully any other fish (make sure to read on which fish they do not prey on) that might get in their way. Flying gurnards are a distinctive species of fish with a one of a kind look. They are beautiful to look at and they pose no big threat to fish larger than themselves.
