Very special thanks for the first Photo of Enneanectes carminalis to Dr. Ross Robertson from Australia.
He has taken the photo a t Mexico.
The Carmine triplefin is endemic and widespread to the Eastern Pacific and is found from central Baja California and the central Gulf of California to Panama.
Adult triplefins inhabit shallow reefs and weedy rocky areas in shallow waters, where they feed on tiny invertebrates and algae.
