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!

Long-Spined Tripod Fish – Juvenile

The last dive on Kata Beach turned up something pretty interesting, or at least it became far more interesting later on while viewing the day's snaps. I 100% thought I was taking photos of a juvenile Filefish, but when I got home and tried to ID the type of Filefish, I was surprised to see that [...]

Zebra Moray Is The Shyest Of Morays

Apart from being rare, hard to find & beautiful, the Zebra Moray is also annoyingly bashful, preferring to spend it time hiding from anything even remotely resembling a camera or scuba diver. Here in Phuket, where I found this one, we see them very very rarely, there is no dive site we can conclusiv [...]
