Tom Giammarco, thanks for the great new pictures and welcome to LOL. I'm begining to wonder just how many species there are still out there!Do you have an ISBN number for that book? I'm sure some of us would be interested in it.

One thing that I noticed was the high incidence of False Eye-spot markings on the caudal peduncle of these fish. I've also noted it on Zipper Loaches. I guess these are some kind of predator fooler, as they are in many Coral-fishes that have similar markings. Or maybe they have another use?

Martin.
