Speckled Sandperch. While diving from Pelagian off the coast of Wangi Wangi we encountered many of these little guys. Mostly found in rubble or on the sandy bottom they are very skiddish and thereby difficult to photograph this close.

Carpet or Crocodile Flathead? You be the judge. Image taken near Magic Pier, Buton, South Sulawesi. The crocodile flatheads in this area seemed to have more prevalent blue pattern than others I have visited.
