 Tails  Fins  Heads 
For some reason fish tails never cease to fascinate. We do take a lot of pictures of them. Here's a small bunch of samples for your visual entertainment. I let the images speak for themselves.

I have now created a REAL wallpaper from the Rosy sheen picture. And our first that comes in 1200*1600 pixels too. Find it in the wallpaper section.

Our hosts at GFF have some kind of "fetish" with fish tails!!
Serously, they are the first people who discover the beauty of fish tails. One of those photographs, the above called Rosy sheen, have been my wallpaper since it appears for the first time at GFF.
Great photos!
