Very nice. "Handfish" belong to the family Brachionichthyidae. This family is closely related to the Antennariidae (frogfish). Both families belong to the order Lophiiformes (anglerfish). I am currently revising the Breeding Overview for the Antennariidae and will try to make it encompass all Lophiiformes.
