Native fish of San Diego

We spent the fourth in Oceanside and got a chance to spend a lot of time on the beach and in the harbor. We saw a lot of small to medium sized orange fish in the harbor and we couldn't identify them to save our lives. I'd almost swear if I didn't know better that they were midas cichlids or something. Anyhow, does anyone have a little list of native San Diego fish? My search didn't turn up much.

TIA

If this was in saltwater then they cant be midas (red devil) cichlids. Those are fresh water amazon basin cichlids.

I am a San Diegan. What you are seeing is called a Garabaldi, Hypsypops rubicundus. It is the California state fish. They are a member of the Pomacentridae family . See http://projects.edtech.sandi.net/enc.../garabaldi.htm
