This week in Fish: First specimen of Denise's Pygmy Seahorse

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 02 Feb 2012

It was a week of images, punctuated by another of Amanda's blog posts from Lizard Island.  Ed Roberts kindly supplied an image of the first Denise's Pygmy Seahorse known from Australian waters.  The larval Barred Soapfish image is spectacular and John Harris' images of Cox's Gudgeon climbing Penrith Weir are pretty impressive.  Thanks to everyone who contributed.
