Commonly known as Weedy Scorpionfish, Popeyed Scorpionfish or the Purple Tassled Rhino Scorpionfish, Rhinopias frondosa (Scorpaenidae) is a spectacular fish, very rare, but once found, can be easily located again as they tend to stay at the same place unless disturbed.

The colors will vary but they’re generally in red, purple, orangish hues. The specimen shown is purple variation.
