Unknown fish from Redang night dive
« on: 03 May 14, 04:40 »
Hello! Can someone help to ID this fish spotted on a night dive in Redang? Someone told me it's a Devil Stinger, but I googled, and the photos online don't seem to match :X

Thanks in advance! (:

Definitely a Scorpionfish or Waspfish.... But from the photo, without its dorsal fins and side pins exposed fully... hard to tell which is which and the given name of the fish....

Anyone with a better eye ?? Please help...
