Weedy scorpionfish.  Tropical scorpionfishes are camoflage experts, changing color and apparent texture in order to masquerade as rocks, clumps of algae or detritus, Rhinopias frondossa Add To Light Table Banded archerfish.  The banded archerfish is known for its ability to shoot down resting insects by spitting a jet of water. Large archerfishes can hit a target 2-3m away. Archerfishes have adaptations to the mouth which enable spitting. When a banded archerfish shoots a jet of water, it raises its tongue against the roof of the mouth forming a tube. The gill covers quickly close forcing water along the tube. This species mostly lives in mangrove and estuarine habitats throughout much of the Indo-Pacific, Toxotes jaculatrix Add To Light Table Banded archerfish.
