Awesome photo Martin. Thats a great fish too. I had a small group at one point, much more active than P. khuli in my opinion.

I love how much more like snakes P. anguillaris look than any other Kuhli. If the head is in the shot, they always look like pythons on the move - perhaps they have wider jaws to accommodate their small size... Anyway, they have a certain look that I love. I have four in the Kuhli/sid tank, but photo ops are extremely rare. I usually only see them when I'm cleaning the tank.

Definitely snaky. Look at the lidded look in the eyes...what's he after?

Very cool pic, Martin. 8)

Insightful observations Mark, I agree, or perhaps one of those snakes that live in the ocean....interesting stuff.
Mine were definetly never out and about, alwats hiding under some slate or bogwood.

Stunning picture Martin. :D I love the long shaped head they have. The Horse-face of the Pangio kind.

Fantastic photograph, Martin! I know how difficult it is to get a decent shot of these slippery characters! :wink:
