Which fish is this ?

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find this one on my fish I.D. book .

 

Looks a little like the arrow blenny from the caribbean . I found this one at Bangka in around 10-15 ft. of water.

 

I will appreciatte if someone could help me with the name.

 

Thanks

Looks like the long-snout clingfish Diademichthys lineatus. Often found among long-spines urchins (Diadema) which the genus is named after.

Whenever I see these guys in crinoids (twice this month while I was in PNG) I get really excited and point them out to my fellow divers. I try to communicate telepathically: "look! they're supposed to be in urchins but this guy is in a crinoid! isn't that exciting!??!"

 

Usually, they don't get as excited as I. :)

Eric,

 

That is just like me going all excited after a dive with some fellow rebreather types in shallow eel grass with us seeing razorfish...they thought the macro was boring and I was all amped....

 

Seeing one of those in an urchin and getting to video it would similarly be a highlight for me...

 

Why divers wouldn't find such cool is beyond me....funny though, while they're thinking we don't get it, we think they don't get it....lol
