Moray help

20 November 2014 - 08:39 AM

Taken in Ambon, Moluccas recently. Fishbase isn't much help as a lot of photos there are of dead specimens. Nearest  I seem to be able to find is Gymnothorax tile but there isn't much around to back this up


Triplefins X 2

07 November 2014 - 08:28 AM

Taken in Ambon, Moluccas. They were just feet apart so possibly male and female as they have a few similarities e.g. pectoral fins.

Pretty sure they fall into the genus Enneapterygius  which is pretty poorly covered on Fishbase. Grubbing around on Google and a small, not too clear pic in the Tropical Pacific fish book, leads me towards Enneapterygius mirabalis - Miracle Triplefin. However, the sources on Google are not ones well known to me.

Can anybody help please?
