(juveniles) Antennarius striatus (G. Shaw, 1794), commonly known as Striate Anglerfishes. Anglerfishes include some of the best camouflaged of all fishes. They have extraordinary adaptations including a lure for attracting their prey, a large mouth and "hidden gill openings". Striate Anglerfishes are extremely variable in form and colour, and even fish from the same area can look quite different. Colours range from red, orange and yellow, through to green, brown or black. Some are heavily striped, while other Striate Anglerfish have broken stripes or spots, or lack stripes entirely.
Picture taken during my dive in Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia, Bali is consider one of the best dive site in the world for Macro and Wide Angle Underwater Photography, thank you for @yansu_diving and @tulambendivemonster team who make this picture possible.
Indonesia consists of 17,000 islands and become the largest archipelago country in the world! About 4000 species of fish found in Indonesia waters (more than 25% of fish species), compared to 1000 species in the Red Sea or 400 species in the Caribbean Sea. Type of fish from macro, small fish and pelagic are easy to find in Indonesia waters. Not only that. Indonesia has 75% of coral species. That is why Indonesia has become one of the best diving destinations in the world. Accordingly, we invite Indonesian and foreign divers to see the beauty of Indonesia underwater world at the best price. For dive trip schedules please check http://indonesiadivesafaris.com
