Spanish Flagfish, Gonioplecterus hispanus photosPosted on Monday, March 28th, 2011 at 11:58 am by ReefTools
Here are photos of Spanish Flag Fish currently at Absolutely Fish, plus 2 others they had in the past. The adult specimen was about 6 inches, while the other one is about 3 inches in length. The one depicted in the video we showed last week, is also about 3 inches.
Remember that in order to catch one of these beauties, divers went down to a depth of 500 feet, a task that took them 2 hours. At that point, they had no longer than 10 minutes to located and catch a Spanish Flag, before beginning an 8 hour trip back to the surface.
