    She [Dr. Flammang] wanted to study the fish more closely, but the species is rare and protected, and she could not bring any of them into her lab.

    He [Dr. Suvarnaraksha] scooped two of the fish into an aquarium and made videos of them walking at different angles.

Did I miss something?

I kind of assumed that meant that he took the aquarium into the cave with him, and just put them there to get good camera angles, releasing them afterward.

I can't find "more" in that context in the original article.

That's what you missed, they are endangered and restricted access, but that doesn't mean you can't get access to them at all.
