Splendid Toadfish | Sanopus splendidus

"Despite its brilliant coloring, the Splendid Toadfish is a shy creature and is pretty difficult to coax: you can generally find it under or around crevices and coral heads in clear water, at a depth of about 10-25m. It is at night that the toadfish comes out, since it’s a nocturnal hunter: it feeds on small fish, snails and polychaete worms. So night dives are a good time to spot it."  -
