Deep-Sea News omission?

Did this mysterious creature turn up gasping for water after being dragged up from its ocean trench home?

No, it's living happily in my fishtank along with about a dozen of its siblings. It's a days-old Crimson-spotted Rainbowfish (Melanotaenia duboulayi).

These guys are small! Only a matter of millimetres long and less than a millimetre wide. So photography is quite a challenge as you could imagine.
