Small benthic fish on Bali night dive.

Recommended Posts

Saw this at about 10M on a muck night dive in Bali.

It was about 3cm long and stayed curled up and inactive. post-34362-0-93905000-1393807686_thumb.jpg

Can someone ID it please?

It's a Jawfish, Opistognathus sp. out of its hole :)

 

Cheers,

Jim.

Yes, definitely a jawfish.

I had this same sort of encounter on a night dive while diving in Raja Ampat.

Thanks for your replies.

I had considered jawfish, but could not find a match in my books.

Oh, looks like a new species that I am after... Good to know that it comes out at night!
