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.

Phestilla melanobrachia aeolid #nudibranch this is the bright orange-yellow colour form. There is also the black dark form.

Even if you know where and what it is it’s properly camouflaged and hard to spot. But I’m sure the ones of you with a trained eye spotted the juvenile black-blotched porcupinefish (Diodon liturosus) straight away?!

Things you might only see once in your life time of scuba diving. Baby Brownbanded Bamboo #Shark 💙🦈❤️ (Chiloscyllium punctatum). This one is only 30cm in length. Protect our #sharks we need them. The oceans will not survive without sharks. They are reef cleaners. They eat old and sick fish and keep the numbers in check. .

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.

Hopefully the ocean gets a break too. Less ships and hopefully less fishing so oceans can recover!

Yesterday I was finally able to photograph the beautiful Phestilla melanobrachia aeolid. It has both black and bright orange-yellow colour forms. Happy I caught the black one, the colour matching the colour of the dendrophylliid coral (Tubastrea, Dendrophyllia) on which specimens are feeding. . .
