The first almost looks like a velvet.....





(Solenostomus paegnius)

It comes in shades of brown, light tan to green and has skin filaments on the snout and body, which are often long, and hair like. Found solitary or in pairs in sand and rubble areas from depths of 8m/25ft to 20m/70ft, often in association with filamentous algae. Extent of hairy growth is variable and the extremely hairy individuals may even be a separate species. Other common names for this species are the Irish setter ghost pipefish or Rufus ghost pipefish.

There are better options than gels, now. The flip type filters allow you to use a filter...or not. If you go shallow, you will not want a filter. Deeper? Yes.  Backscatter offers a decent one.


I have the flip red filter with the Macromate mini macro lens. I love the flip red filter.....not so happy with the macro lens.


I tried to post an image off the web of it, but the forum won't allow it? What the heck?

Sorry you had a bad time in Indonesia.


I have used Ikelite for over ten years and have never had any trouble. I have had great service every time I send my gear back for servicing. I wouldn't change my Ike gear as I am very happy with it.
