Friday Fish: Pterois volitans

I got some clarification on the requested lionfish of a few weeks ago - this is the "Red Lionfish" or "Peacock Lionfish". Again with the rather lame common name, but this fish is rather pretty, and has the usual Scorpaeniforme venom glands. This is the second lionfish in this genus I've posted - P. antennata appears here.
