Description

IF you are a fan of Frog Fish like me, you will find yourself running into the very same problems I do each and every time I find one while diving, “What frigging species is this one?”. It’s almost a full time job some days trying to figure it out and I’ll be honest, fish ID books pay Frog Fish very little attention, for some reason those books focus heavily on the smaller fishes like Gobies, Damsel, Anthias, and on Sharks, Rays, Eels and things people tend to see more of, Frog Fish are rare, and extremely good at hiding, so maybe that’s why they don’t get the same kind of attention.

Thankfully there is a resource to help us, I found it while in another ID frenzy, it’s called Zubi’s Frogfish Photos, I don’t personally know Zubi, but I thank him/her for their contribution and the time it saves me. Check it out if you are ever having trouble ID’ing a Frog Fish!

The one pictured here is a small Painted Frog Fish, the spots on the fins and body give it away. He was walking around on the silty floor trying to get onto the rope swinging in the current, I love watching them walk and tried to capture it a little bit in this photo, enjoy!

The Juvenile Yellow Box Fish 2

It may have been horrible diving this low season in Phuket, but that doesn't mean the fish are not still there, it just means it is about three times more difficult to find them and get a decent photo! Juvenile Yellow Box Fish are fairly common even on some of the less coral heavy sites, so they mak [...]

Long Nosed Hawk Fish

It pays to ask the guides if they have any favourite critters or special spots on a dive site where you might find something rare, potentially something you won't have to contend with other photographers for a chance at snapping. Whilst in Egypt we did just that on Elphinstone, a very popular div [...]
