Rare Video of Deepwater Sunburst Anthias

Sunburst Anthias or Hawk Anthias on the reef (Serranocirrhitus latus)

For whatever reason, this beautiful little anthias is not often the subject of underwater video. It is a bit shy and it lives rather deep, which are two reasons it may be overlooked, but it is certainly a beautiful fish.
Marj and I found these fish on a steep drop-off in Palau between 110ʻ-120ʻ. They stayed out in the open long enough to get some nice shots of their habitat and behavior. The original video is UHD (4K) shot using a Sony AX-100, twin Sola 2100 lights, and a Gates housing.
