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!

Stone Fish Staghorn Sentinel

Referring to Stone Fish as Sentinel's is probably a bad description for them, Sentinel's & Gargoyle's are actually silent protectors of the weak and helpless, where as Stone Fish typically prey on the defenseless for a snack. So are they good guys, definitely not, they lie in wait till something is [...]

Ambon Scorpion Fish – Not Just A Seasonal Fluke

Last season at Kata Beach (Nov 2017 - May 2018) I posted some fairly interesting finds, one of which was, of course, the Ambon Scorpion Fish, something that is not meant to be in the waters around Phuket and something as far as I know, had not been found by anyone else here (bragging). We did qui [...]
