Brackish-Water Frogfish (Twinspot Frogfish) - Brackwasser Anglerfisch

All frogfish-species (list / color / image) - Alle Anglerfisch-Arten (Liste / Farben / Bild)

Antennarius biocellatus (Brackish-Water or Twinspot Frogfish) lives in brackish water, a habitat seldom visited by divers. This is probably the reason it is not very well known.

Antennarius biocellatus (Brackwasser Anglerfisch) lebt im Brackwasser, einem Lebensraum, der eher selten von Tauchern besucht wird. Aus diesem Grund ist er auch eher unbekannt.

Interesting the red area around the lure that probably also attracts the attention of possible prey.
Interessant die rote Stelle rund um die Angel, welche wohl auch zum Anlocken der Beute nützlich ist.

I identified all frogfishes (anglerfishes) to my best knowledge. Frogfishes are specially difficult to identify (see tips for identification) so mistakes are possible of course! Please write to me, if you have any questions. Latin names according to the newest scientific findings, ITIS Standard Report and Fishbase.
