    It is, indeed, a very beautiful fish. I saw a black and white pic of a juvenile queen in a book by Ed Fisher in 1955 here in Michigan, and it prompted a move to Florida (there were no saltwater fish in Michigan at that time, or salt to keep them in) and started a lifelong obsession with this discipline. All from a B&W pic of a queen. Still my favorite fish and I keep (properly) 2 10" specimens grown from smalls. Each has a 16' vat. By the by, if you thought I was knocked out by a B&W pic, try and imagine when I saw my first one underwater in real life. Educational note: Screaming underwater with a snorkel can cause saltwater ingestion.. Dick
