I love to call it 'Poomeen' (In my mother tongue Malayalam), which can be literally translated as 'flower-fish'. When I saw the rare species of sea fishes in the world's largest aquarium, I felt like a number of living flowers were flowing on the water.
Enjoy the snap of the graceful sea-fish (Sorry, I forgot its name) seen in the gigantic Dubai Aquarium at Dubai Mall.
