diverse population of corals support hundreds
of species of colourful coral dwelling fish
and invertebrates and are intermingled with
several species of
giant clams. Octopus can also be found here.
Sponges and crinoids are found intermingled
with corals or near coral patches and so are
several species of marine algae (seaweeds).
In or near the habitats created by these one
finds a wide variety of interesting creatures
including photographers’ favourites such as
lionfish, shrimp, lobsters, anemones, anemone
fish, sea horses and a host of others.
