The sergeant major or pintano is a species of damselfish that is white with five black vertical stripes and a yellow top. Adult males are more bluish and have less visible stripes and a dark spot around the pectoral fin. They are usually about six inches long but can get as large as 9 inches long.
We saw lots of them in Carlisle Bay off the island of Barbados.
|When our guide put food in the water the sergeant majors swarmed very, very thickly.|
