4 fish from Dumagete, Philippines

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone knows these fish. I can't find the Cardinalfish in any of my books, but Popes website has it as Ostorhinchus wassinki. Doesn't mention if this is a juvenile stage. The other three I can't find. Thanks in advance for any help.

The third one looks like a Striped Dwarfgoby. Some sort of Goby anyway. The last one looks like a wrasse,

The first one are juvenile cardinalfish. Could be wassinki or the very similar cyanosoma. Did you see adults nearby?

The second looks like a kind of scorpionfish but not one I know

The third is a ghostgoby, most likely Pleurosicya mossambica

The fourth is a female shoulderspot wrasse (Leptojulis cyanopleura)
