来自泰国的地图吊

地图吊是小高鳍刺尾鱼属里一个非常特殊的品种,极少见于个人鱼缸里,这个物种首次发现于马尔代夫,所捕获的个体大量都流往欧洲的水族爱好者手中。

 

最近几年,大量的地图吊在印尼爪哇岛的西南部被发现,包括很多梦幻般的生物像bumblebeeschoolbus也在其中。

更激动人心的是,这个物种牢牢的盘踞在泰国普吉岛和爪哇岛附近,从地图上看,我们不得不怀疑这个物种是印度洋吊类里的特有物种。

 

当然,太平洋海域也发现了黄白吊,而黄金吊(与常见的黄金吊yellow tang不一样,附照片)也常见于菲律宾一带。不过,只要一说地图吊,那么绝对是来自印度洋。

 

如果有人能提供地图吊广泛存在于太平-印度洋海域,那么我们很乐意知道。关于地图吊来源的传说目前还是一个秘密,但是,如果在印度洋发现更多地图吊,,这可能是由于印度洋的小高鳍刺尾鱼属的某些独特基因的结果。

原文:

The Koi Scopas tang is a special variant of Zebrasoma scopas which appears sporadically in the aquarium hobby. The first specimens were discovered in the Maldives, and often made their way to European aquarists. 

 

In recent years a concentration of these Koi Scopas were discovered southwest of Java, and many fantastic specimens including Bumblebee and Schoolbus were among these. However we’ve just come across some dive photos of a strikingly beautiful koi-style Z. scopas from Amphoe Muang Phuket, Thailand, which are the one of the rare documentations of this phenomenon in the wild. 

 

However, more tantalizing is that Amphoe Muang Phuket and Southwest Java are firmly in the Indian Ocean. This new point on the map is leading us to wonder if Koi scopas tangs are somehow ‘endemic’ to Indian Ocean populations of scopas tangs. 

 

Of course, there are white yellow tangs in the Pacific Ocean, and yellow scopas tangs are quite common from the Philippines, but so far as we can tell Koi Scopas are predominantly from the Indian Ocean.

 

If anyone has evidence of these Koi Scopas being found at all in the Indo-Pacific, we’d love to hear about it. The saga of the Koi Scopas tang, its causes and origins, are a mystery to the aquarium world, but if more of these are found from the Indian Ocean, it could be the result of some unique genetics in Zebrasoma scopas from the Indian Ocean,
