Southern Crested Weedfish Cristiceps australis

Observer

Description

Small individual ~45mm long. Found on the surface amongst a small clump of floating sargassum about 100m offshore (photographed in a tank and then released in the same place in the same sargassum clump)

I think it is either C. australis or C. argyropleura. The first dorsal fin originates directly above the centre of the eye which would suggest C. australis but there also appears to be a low membrane connecting the first and second dorsal fins (second image) which would suggest C. argyrolpleura from what I've been reading. Nasal tentacles have two short lobes.

Would love to hear from people more in the know on Clinidae! What a fascinatingly difficult family of fish.

I have more photos if there's any other features that would help but not visible in these pics
