Dear FishBase Forum users,

Welcome to our new and improved site!

In the past, spammers have succeeded in making the forum unusable. Thus, in our aspiration to keep the site as simple as possible yet functional, we came up with this new version protected by a captcha system. We have checked and cleaned the database, keeping all good postings and pictures. However, note that the record numbers are tentative, we may need to change them in the coming months, and that the site is without registration at the moment. Please bear with us as we continuously develop this site to maximize service to fish enthusiasts all over the world. Feel free to comment on this version and make suggestions for improvements.

Lastly, we would like to clarify that the forum is for technical comments and inquiries that need scientific responses from experts in our team or other entities/groups that wish to share their knowledge on the subject at hand. If you wish to express your thoughts about our website and/or provide comments on our work, which don't necessarily need a response, then you may use our Guestbook for that purpose.


Enjoy the forum. Ü

Our very best regards,
FishBase

Hello fellow fish people, I photographed the fish attached at night. It has 3 bioluminescent dots under its eye. Does not look like a myctophid since the eye/body ratio is smaller, but I don’t know all the myctophids. Any ideas? Thank you in advance for your time. All best, Alex

Chromis analis breeding colours?
Posted on: 21/04/2019 11:27:11

I'm a working marine ecologist in Fiji, pretty good at fish ID. Just came across the attached fish on and outer reef slope bommie in Beqa Lagoon at about 7m depth. To me it looks a lot like Chromis analis, but the colour was bronze with an orange parch on the head. There were about 20 of these all togather on one patch of reef. Is it a breeding colouration or a fish I don't know? Note that photos were taken without flash with a point and shot camera, actual seen were much brighter than indicated here. All opinions welcome.

Help requested from experts in identifying this fish, which was being preyed upon by a Lesser Fish Eagle. The Ramganga's most common large fish are the Mahseer and the Goonch, a catfish, but this one was different. All information about this fish would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Red Sea: another clownfish species?
Posted on: 19/03/2019 07:41:38

Description : Over the years I encountered occasionally a small (maybe 1cm - 4 cm) clownfish species (?) that is distinct from the abundant species Amphiprion bicinctus (also their juveniles, that as far as I have seen are just miniatures of the adults) by the following criteria: #1.: Second dorsal fin has white rim and black speck. #2.: Caudal fin detto #3.: Behaviour is very different: swimming around fast and nervous, bending the body and waving with fins. #4.: This fish was always alone in the anemone, not associated with grown up A. bicinctus as is often observed with juveniles ones. There are three photos in this Fishbase under Amphiprion bicinctus, that resemble the fish in the photo submitted by me: may it be because the photos are automatically attributed to A. bicinctus, since this is the only reported species from the Red Sea? Or did someone a systematic study, e.g. hatching the fish in aquarium and observed this marked variability in color, shape and behaviour from egg to adult? May this be a second, less abundand and poorly described species of clownfish that occurs in the Red Sea? Wolfgang

Fish ID - Threespot angelfish - Apolemichthys trimaculatus ???
Posted on: 13/02/2019 07:01:28

Hi. This fish was seen on a dive at Siaes tunnel, Palau (06-11-2019). It looks like the three spot angelfish, but it lacks the whitish colored anal fin. This fish had a bright yellow anal fin. The black edge of the fin is present. Is this a known color variation, or is it a similar looking (sub)species ? I will send the link to the youtube-video by email. Any suggestions ? Thank you !
