Any idea what the seahorse in the first picture has his tail wrapped around? is it a species of starfish?A201 said:I'll use generalities. No scientific ID's. #1 Sea Horse, #2 Scorpion Fish (numerous varieties) #3 Lion Fish, #4 Surgeon Fish aka Tang, unknown variety. #5 Puffer Fish, unknown variety, #6 Copper Banded Butterfly - I've actually kept one of those. #7 unknown #8 same as fish #2, #8 unknown. Hope this helps a little.

I'll just answer those I know/suspect.
Pic 2: This one is annoying me. Nearly had it, but ultimately don't. Maybe I will eventually.
Pic 4 looks to be Ctenochaetus strigosus.
Pic 5: Maybe black spotted dog face puffer - Arothron nigropunctatus
Pic 6: Copper banded butterfly - Chelmon rostratus
Pic 7: Gollum. Can't see too well. Maybe Erosa erosa or something similar. Likely not.
Pic 8: Dendrochirus biocellatus maybe.
Pic 9: What am I looking at?
That would have been my thought. I would have said something like the double spined urchin - Echinothrix calamaris. Though I don't know them very well.kallililly1973 said:I
