Description:

The fish was approximately 10 inches long. Photographed in mangrove swamp at Jozani forest, Zanzibar. It was swimming in the same location as trumpet fish, but the locals could not identify it. The fish has three distinctive orange lines along the length of the body, and a strangely shaped mouth. Observation has been sent to i-spot in South Africa, but no identification has been forthcoming, although they have suggested that it might be some sort of pipe fish
