This week I was delighted to add two beautiful images of the undescribed 'Bare Island' anglerfish. Also added were a 'new species' for the site, the Little Bellowsfish plus some great images of a Common Galaxias and a Scribbled Unicornfish from remote Middleton Reef. From closer to home, the Horned Blenny makes an ever-so-cute appearance. As always, thank you to all contributors!
