This little fella looks like a red-fingered, yet slightly different. The enlarged "nostrils" and kind of squished-compacted face are the most obvious differences I see in this individual if compared to other red-fingered anglerfish in the area. Could this be a variation of the Porophryne erythrodactylus, another member of the genus, or no relation with Porophryne at all?!?! Please, share your thoughts.

Thx!

Could it possibly be the Indo-Pacific C. maculatus or a new registry of color variation in C. typicus? This fish looked insured and/or sick.

This fish was larger and 'tougher" looking that most Rosy Dragonets I've seen around. It didn't even try to flee when approached, as these dragonets tend to do. It just kept 'walking' over rubble minding it's business and beautifully blending with the background colors.

a Rosy or maybe a Coral Dragonet?
