Lionfish

Pterois volitans/miles complex

Habitat:

Original: Indo-Pacific Ocean Now: Invasive stablished in the US east coast and Caribbean

Notes:

Spotted while diving at Eden Rock, Grand Cayman. This beautiful fish are unfortunatly not in their natural settings due to human neglect. The general thought is that they are at least yet another stress to the fagile reefs of Florida and the Caribbean Sea.
