Via Singapore we have once again received Nandus nebulosus in beautiful, fully grown specimens. The species can, like all other leaf fish, change its colouring very fast and drastically, furthermore each specimen has an individually different marble pattern. Some of our new arrivals have a head profile which is much more pointed than expected from N. nebulosus and therefore look like the species N. proxilus described from Borneo and have – like these – only 14 dorsal fin spines (15-16 in N. nebulosus). But there are also typical N. nebulosus in our import.
