A rare occasion to find this Male Marble-mouthed Frogfish incubating his eggs, which he attached to the side of his body. From time to time, he wriggle and sway her body to aerate the Eggs. According to the Dive guide I was diving with, he first saw this Frogfish carrying newly laid Eggs about 2.5 months ago. 3 days after this spotting, I went back to look for it again, but the Eggs were already released.
