    What kind of fish is this?

    I was swimming in front of the Tam one late afternoon when I kept seeing something in the water. At first I thought it was just a reflection from the sun on the waves but when I stopped walking I was completely surrounded by these fish. I ran up to our room to get my camera (and my husband since I was there anyway-LOL).
    It was amazing seeing them so clearly when they were surrounding us. I will admit it was a little freaky at one point with them rubbing against my legs.

    Can anyone please tell me what kind of fish they are?
