Photo of the Week - Aquacultured Tiger Batfish

Another photo of one of the Aquacultured Tiger Batfish we had in stock recently. A first as an aquacultured specimen in the United States, and perhaps the Americas. Tiger Batfish (Platax batavianus) like the rest of the "Batfish" go by several common names; Humpback, Humphead, Batavia, Spadefish are but a few. This is partially because all the fish in this family (Ephippidae for those interested) change appearances dramatically throughout the course of their lives. read more here: Aquacultured Batfish at Quality Marine.
