Photo of the week - Brotulina fusca

According to, these live bearing fish have gone by many scientific names including Dinematichthys riukiuensis, Brotulina fusca, and Diancistrus fuscus. No one is entirely sure which scientific name is valid for the little yellow Brotulids that sometimes show up in the aquarium trade.

These rarely seen fish live in caves in rock and rubble. They are best suited for small, cryptic tanks where they can be target fed as they have very poor eyesight.
