Baby fish in a Pyrosome

Every night there is a vertical migration, where creatures from the deep come to the surface... and tiny creatures find different means of refuge to stay safe in the dark. Photographed on a black water dive off coast of Southeast Florida at night. These baby fish found safety in a pyrosome, which is really a colonial animal.
