Yesterday, we broke news on the amazing aberrant moorish idol that popped up in the holding tanks of Segrest Farms. Unfortunately, the images in that post were not the best quality, but Segrest delivered the goods today with a fresh batch of high res photos showing the amazing moorish idol in all its splendor. They just uploaded them to their Facebook page moments ago, and the images confirm, at least in our humble opinions, that the fish is a moorish idol and not the proposed hybrid that many folks were chattering about on social media sites. That said, this is the most unique moorish idol we’ve ever laid eyes on. This aberrant form has significant yellow markings all over its body, with only slight hints of the black bars that are normally seen. It’s such an amazing fish and we’re grateful to Segrest Farms for keeping us in the loop in a big way. Continue below for a rather impressive gallery. <! #gallery-1 margin: auto; #gallery-1 .gallery-item float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; #gallery-1 img border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; #gallery-1 .gallery-caption margin-left: 0; ]> MORE: Stunning High Res Photos of Segrest Farms’ Aberrant Moorish Idol
