Photo of the Week - Sea Goblin

Sea Goblins come in so many varieties of color that it is hard to describe. Well, a picture is worth a thousand words, right? The fish from the genus Inimicus are all scorpionfish, so named for the venomous spines clearly evident on this fish. The genus name, Inimicus, is latin for "enemy".

Once they are segued from live food they are very hardy in captivity, and don't need a lot of space. They will dig into the substrate to hide, so include some sand in the display.

As a cautionary note, they will indiscriminately consume other fish in the aquarium. They are also venomous, and be very dangerous if handled carelessly.
