Photos of Deep Water fish

Good morning friends, I have two small but very beautiful fish for your viewing pleasure today that were found by the Smithsonian in the 600 to 800 foot range right out in front of the Curacao Sea Aquarium. This is a new species of Lipogramma which is currently being described and worked on by Carole Baldwin of the Smithsonain. The top photo is an intermediate or young Lipogramma (less than an inch) and the bottom photo shows the same fish in it’s terminal phase (about two and a half inches) and for once the older fish becomes more beautiful with age, normally it’s the juveniles that are so colorful! This is one of the hands down most docile fish I have ever seen, other than a scorpionfish, these fish don’t move around much and seem to just love to be parked and perched. As I learn more I will pass it on to you all out there in cyberspace so stay tuned for more.

I just got out of the water photographing the submersible and had a great dive, the water was super clear and the school of bonnetmouths had me completely surrounded!

Camera Survives Ocean Trip To Fla.
Bright Red Nikon Floated Away From Dutchman In Aruba

MIAMI -- Paul Shultz was walking along the pier of a Key West marina when he saw what looked like a rotting tomato pounding against the rocks.
The Coast Guard investigator waded ankle-deep into the water to fish out the ocean rubbish: a bright red Nikon camera, small enough to fit in the palm of his hand. Its waterproof plastic case was covered with six months' worth of crusty sea growth, but the camera itself was almost pristine when he found it May 16
