Spotfin Lionfish Pterois antennata
Spotfin Lionfish (Pterois antennata) is a small species of Lionfish that is also known as Broadbarred Firefish/Lionfish, Antenna Lionfish/Turkeyfish, and more. It occurs in groups in tropical shallow waters of The Indian Ocean and Western Pacific. It is usually seen hiding during the daytime, as it hunts at night. Its pectoral fins have some webbing near their base, which is where the spots are found that give it its name. The spines of this species are generally white and not 'feathered' as in most other species of Lionfish.
