LIVE Trending Cams
Good morning all....Thank you Adrian,i was lucky to see his spots..
...........the fish shows its spots according to its mood; usually thin faint stripes.
@ Chrisre Lovely spotty fish = Topsail sea-chub (Kyphosus cinerascens) aka: topsail drummer, blue sea-chub, stenter.
@Adrian Allain, thank you.
@ SigitaYes, crenimugil crenilabis; fringelip mullet. One of a few different grey mullets. Boxlip, thick lipped, etc depending on what part of the world you are in.
So is the speed of transmission different when it's clear, RHD?
Viability is due to the speed of the transmission from the webcam. You can't get instant stuff on the internet.
Poor visibility on this cam at 23:30 :(
Good morning Ann x
Good morning Dave !
Apologies; I've just realised. My photo caption 'Longfin silver biddy' should read 'Longtail silver biddy'. I shouldn't trust my memory. I should have checked it out.These little fish stay almost stationary just above the seabed down below the camera; facing the current. In the mottled sunlight their shadows give their position away.
Hi Adrian ! Thank you for confirming that my photo was indeed a wrasse. I appreciate your efforts to investigate it further. Yes, let's hope we can get a clearer view of one !
Hi Joan, the fish you mentioned seeing seems to be a convict tang. I'm no expert either. I had the same questions when I first started viewing this cam but thanks to Halil and Adrian I have learned a lot !
@Chris, I was very surprised to see a shark--upper left corner of the screen. It wasn't the very small ones which frolic near the shoreline, this one was small to medium, dorsal fins and all! I was shocked at the size. Happy that I was sitting here behind my screen, also! :)
@ Ann GaleaHi Ann, you have probably worked out for yourself from looking at PHOTOS that what you captured was indeed a wrasse. Quite a small one and just a silhouette. No amount of enhancement has brought up any markings or colours. The fin layout and especially the tail fin indicate that it maybe a moon wrasse which is native to the Maldives, but there are similar types. Juvenile wrasse often have different colouring to the adults. For instance the young ornate wrasse around Malta are bright yellow with a single black spot. The adult is multi-coloured with very little yellow. Lets hope that we can catch a wrasse in good light.
