16 April 2014 - 03:19 PM



can anybody help me with this goby from Bali?

Size was about 2-3 cm.










Thanks in advance





sea snake question

17 March 2014 - 04:22 PM

This sea snake was obviously taking a nap in a depth of about 10 m at the northern coast of Bali, just 3 weeks ago.

It didn't look like the typical Laticauda colubrina of the Indo-Pacific, seemed to be a bit longer and the head was bigger.


Does anybody has an idea?

this goby was shot in Lembeh (a few years ago):




I guess the length about 3-4 cm.

Considering a Bryaninops sp. - B. loki or B. amplus are possible but I'm not shure at all.

Can some expert please have a look and give an advice?


Thanks in advance!



Hawkfish question

15 September 2013 - 11:29 AM



I saw this hawkfish at Tulamben (Bali/Indonesia) and I'm desperately trying to identify it.




Because some species look really similar to each other I'm completely insecure.

The fish was about 7-10 cm in length.


Well, I'm considering:

Cirrhitichthys aprinus or Cirrhitichthys falco but they might be both wrong.


I don't know if it helps, but I have another image whích is actually the reason searching for the correct id.

Even if it is from the front it might help a little bit:




Thanks in advance!
