Does anyone know what kind of fish this is(Very well hidden bottom middle of the photo) i didnt even know it was in the photo untile i printed it out
What part of the world was the picture taken? And at what depth?
It was Taken on Bari Reef off Bonaire at about 40-50 feet
Looks like a juvenile reef scorpionfish hanging upside down.
Seems to me a like a Rusty Goby (Priolepis hipoliti) or maybe some kind of juvenile Blenny genus Starksia...
I second the juvenile scorpionfish- it has a prominent long dorsal fin with big spines, so not a goby, it has cirrhi coming off its face too- juvenile scorpionfish...
