blue tangs

A school of Atlantic blue tang surgeonfish (Acanthurus coeruleus). These surgeonfish are common to the Caribbean and the greater Atlantic Ocean. Paya Bay Resort is a great base from which to snorkel and scuba dive the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System.

Dory, one of my all-time favorite movie characters, is a type of blue tang.

Dory: I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy. Come on, Squishy Come on, little Squishy. 
[baby talk, the jellyfish stings her] 
Dory: Ow. Bad Squishy, bad Squishy.
