SQUIRRELFISH, MR. AND MRS...



Checking up information on marine life while not diving is a joy...

Some specimens can be quite confusing...

As in squirrelfish and soldierfish...

What's the differentiating feature between them?

I think we have a pair of squirrelfish...

They seemed to be nesting in a fallen barrel sponge among some corals...

Normally they prefer to rest in schools underneath shady coral heads in the day...

They come alive at nightfall, for feeding...

Size was about 30 centimeters...

Location: Blue Coral House Reef, Lang Tengah...
