Puzzle Time: Can You Find The Fish Among These Octopuses?

There is at least one fish in this sea — it's just really hard to find!

Let’s go fishing, folks!

For today’s puzzle we go under the sea, where Twitter user Dudolf, also known in real life as author Gergely Dudas, put up this underwater expedition.

This is a tough one, so we’ll give you some time to ponder it. And no, octopuses are not fish, they are cephalopods (and also escape artists, as evidenced in the video below).

And no, a starfish is also not a fish.

(By the way, if you enjoy this puzzle, you will want to check out Dudas’ website, as he has two books out that are a collection of similar puzzles!)

Here you go — can you find the fish in this sea of octopuses?

Take your time.

No?

I’ll give you a few hints: The fish is also red, and you should check the left side of the photo. Oh, and you can’t see the entire fish.

Another Simplemost staffer guessed X out of the gate.

But that’s not right because:

TEXAS.
