    I took this photograph during my recent diving trip to Sipadan. In it, there is a pufferfish in the foreground but I realised later that there was something else in the background - looks like another fish. It is better seen on higher definition screens but does anyone know what it is? I thought it might be a frogfish but am not sure.

    I'd agree Arun, I think it just happens to look like a fish.

    The puffer's fin kinda makes it look like the sponge/frogfish's leg. Remove that and it reduces to a sponge.

    What a pity. I thought that I had discovered a hitherto unknown species and was visualising my picture in National Geographic.:cry:;):D

    You'll just have to keep having trips to exotic locations till you find it then.
