Invasive Regal Demoiselle has made it to Florida

The regal demoiselle has made it all the way to Mexico beach Florida. They think it came from shipping an oil platform that was shipped from the Indopacific. Lucky it does not seem to be too aggressive. Here is a video of a couple of juvenile fish.

And it's butt ugly. Maybe the lionfish will develop a taste for it?

It is sort of a bummer. If an aquarist wes guilty of introducing it at least the fish would have been beautiful.

The Regal Demoiselle is now in Trinidad because of moving oil platform equipment.

I think Neopomacentrus cyanomos isn't really ugly, just not particularly colorful.
But there are "varieties" or "local forms" with yellow fins that are not unattractive.


Lion Island, Papua New Guinea

Given its vast native range (Red Sea to Australia and Japan) and the difference in local forms it is quite possible that Neopomacentrus cyanomos actually includes a number of distinct species.
