Most of the photos posted to this page were taken with a Canon 20D in an Ikelike housing with TTL connection to an Ikelite DS-125 and an Inon 2000 substrobe. I also use a Sony Cybershot P150 in a Sony housing attached to a Sea & Sea YS-25 via fiberoptic cable.

Stiped Eel Catfish
These striped eel catfish (Plotosus lineatus) are small (7-8cm) but pack a powerful venom in their fin spines. Repeated stings have even been reported to be fatal. Of the world's 2,000 species of catfish, most are freshwater, with only a few species living in the oceans.
