Re: trematocara in the wild....

yes the first pic of trematocara was at a depth of 20 m around kigoma. they are very common and i also saw (and take pics) them a few years earlier at a place between katoto and chaitika

the t. zebra was taken at a depth of 50-55m depth and was my first time to see them.
