The background is natural. The clear tone is given by the water column and the far away rocks. I waited >10minutes to take this shot as the little fellow was moving between the weed to hunt small crustaceans

A two claw shrimp peers out from a purple vase sponge. This kind of shrimp is a rare find in Cayman! I used a shallow depth of field to focus just on the shrimp's eyes.

Fluorescing Goby - "Tie-Dye"
No color editing was done to this photo. The rainbow of colors is from shooting with my Nightsea fluorescence kit. The filters "excite" the fluorescence in the goby and coral.
