Photo of the Week - Dendrochirus biocellatus

Dendrochirus biocellatus aka the Fu-Man-Chu Lionfish is named for his supremely stylish mustache. These little guys are usually nocturnal; combine this with good camouflage and their small adult size (5"ish in the wild) and you end up with a fish that isn't seen very often. They are also known as "Two Spot Turkey fish" but that isn't nearly as cool.
