I saw a Leafy Scorpionfish on the Ribbon Reef one year sitting on a tabletop staghorn coral. There were about 200 Blue Damsel fish living over the coral. One year later, I did the same trip and the same dive was on the itinery (on the Undersea Explorer). I went straight down to that coral to see what was there.... I could hardly believe my eyes. There was a Leafy Scorpion fish in exactly the same spot but there were NO Blue Damselfish at all! Fijian Liofish
