The frogfish, also called the freshwater angler, is a brackish variation of the saltwater angler fish. Coming from brackish waters of Indonesia the coloration is camouflage brown. Like the saltwater version, these fish are ambush predators that wait for their prey or attract them with a little outgrowth on their forehead called an esca that acts like a lure. Weird fish and difficult to keep unless you are very familiar with brackish conditions.
