Tiger Cardinalfish (Cheilodipterus macrodon). What you can see in its mouth are its eggs if you look closely and zoom in. Males incubate their eggs inside their mouths, as the egg masses increase in size they can be found with wide open mouths where they shift the eggs around to aerate the egg masses.

Pteraeolidia ianthina, is a remarkable aeolid nudibranch which are way ahead of man in harnessing solar energy. Pteraeolidia has evolved a method of capturing and farming microscopic plants (zooxanthellae) in its own body. The plants flourish in this protected environment and as they convert the sun’s energy into sugars, they pass a significant proportion on to the nudibranch for its own use. . .

Who likes Nemo? Amphiprion ocellaris, false percula clownfish. All anemonefish are protandrous hermaphrodites, meaning they first develop into males and may become females later in life. Anemonefish exhibit phenotypic plasticity when males, females, and juveniles inhabit the same anemone. In an anemonefish social group, the female is the dominant and largest member, followed by the dominant male, while other anemonefish remain non-reproductive. . . .

Portrait of a tigertail seahorse (Hippocampus comes). The male carries the eggs in a brood pouch under their chest which holds from 1 – 2,000 eggs and the pregnancy takes from 1 to 4 weeks. It is estimated that only 5% of babies survive. There are 47 different species of seahorses and 14 of those were discovered in the last eight years.

Mouth brooding male Cheilodipterus macrodon, the large-toothed cardinalfish. You can see the eggs in its mouth Mouthbrooding, also known as oral incubation and buccal incubation. Typically, after courtship, the male fertilises the eggs and then collects them in his mouth, holding onto them until they hatch. During this time he cannot feed.

A flying Thysanozoon nigropapillosum gold-speckled flatworm. They grow up to 76mm.The dorsal surface is deep black and covered with numerous yellow-tipped papillae varying in size. The ventral surface is dark brown. The outer margin of the body is slightly wavy and bordered in opaque white. They have small, ear-like pseudotentacles in the middle of the anterior end. They swim by propelling themselves through the water with a rhythmic undulating motion of the body.

Small and hard to photograph but I was lucky enough to get a portrait shot of a Chrysiptera parasema, also known as yellowtail damselfish. In the wild, male C. parasema have their own territories, located near a nesting site. Each territory contains eggs from previous females. The females will swim around inspecting each male and its territory before choosing one based on its size and the number of eggs in its territory. As a part of the evaluation, the female will display a light ring around her eyes, and the male will respond with its own displays. The next day, the female will spawn with the chosen male. An individual male can have up to 10,000 eggs from different females. Males often abandon their territories to claim territories with more eggs, as this makes them appear more favorable to the females. The eggs hatch after up to 4 days, depending on temperature, and the male is responsible for guarding and caring for the eggs. The subsequent larval stage can take 10 to 50 days.

This Hypselodoris pulchella #nudibranch was a bit Special it had a split tail as you can see on the picture. Not sure if this is a genetic mutation or if it was an attack from a predator.

Today is international whaleshark day. Let us appreciate and protect this magnificent shark. 10 facts about whaleshark 10. With the exception of the Mediterranean Sea, whale sharks can be found in all temperate and tropical oceans around the world and migrate thousands of miles to different feeding grounds. 9. The whale shark has distinctive light-yellow/white markings (random stripes and dots) on its very thick, dark gray skin. 8. Despite their size, whales sharks are considered harmless and are often referred to as “gentle giants.” 7. It is thought that whale sharks may have a lifespan of 100 to 150 years. 6. The whale shark is a filter feeder and can neither bite nor chew. Although its mouth can stretch to four feet wide, its thousands of teeth are so tiny that it can only eat small shrimp, fish and plankton by using its modified gill rakers as a suction filter. 5. A whale shark can process more than 6,000 liters of water an hour through its gills. 4. A whale shark’s mouth is at the very front of its head—as opposed to the underside of the head like most sharks. 3. It is thought that less than 10 percent of whale sharks born survive to adulthood. Upon giving birth, the mother shark leaves her young to fend for themselves. 2. Whale sharks are slow swimmers, moving at speeds of no little more than 3 miles per hour. 1. The main threat to whale sharks is the growth of unregulated and unsustainable fisheries to supply international trade demands for shark fins, liver oil (used to waterproof wooden boats), skin and meat.

Brilliant flatworm (Pseudobiceros fulgor). Did you know? Pseudobiceros are hermaphrodites.
