Sleeping Parrot Fish

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Sleeping Parrot Fish

Parrotfishes are a group of fishes that traditionally have been considered a family (Scaridae), but now often are considered a subfamily (Scarinae) of the wrasses. They are found in relatively shallow tropical and subtropical oceans throughout the world, but with the largest species richness in the Indo-Pacific. The approximately 90 species are found in coral reefs, rocky coasts and seagrass beds, and play a significant role in bioerosion. The pharyngeal teeth grind up coral rock the fish ingest during feeding. After they digest the rock, they excrete it as sand, helping to create small islands and the sandy beaches of the Caribbean. One parrotfish can produce 90 kg of sand each year. Almost all species are sequential hermaphrodites, starting as females (known as the initial phase) and then changing to males (the terminal phase). Prior to going to sleep, some species extrude mucus from their mouths, forming a protective cocoon that envelops and secures the fish at a particular location and, presumably hides its scent from predators.This mucus envelope may also act as an early warning system, allowing the parrotfish to flee when it detects predators such as moray eels disturbing the protective membrane. The mucus has antioxidant properties that may serve to repair bodily damage, or repel parasites, and to provide added protection from UV light.

Decorator Crabs

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Decorator Crabs

Decorator crabs are an important food source for some fishes, including croakers and cabezon. A crab’s shell doesn’t grow, but the crab does. To solve this dilemma, a crab must molt as it grows, shedding its old exoskeleton and forming a new, larger one. The old shell loosens as a new one forms beneath it. When the old shell splits, the soft animal crawls out. Before its new shell hardens, the crab absorbs water and expands to a size larger than before the molt. While the new shell is hardening, the crab hides from predators. Decorator crabs recycle their living decorations during the molting process—they remove the anemones, sponges and other decorations from their old shell and use them to decorate their new shell.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Pipefish

Pipefishes or pipe-fishes (Syngnathinae) are a subfamily of small fishes, which, together with the seahorses, form the family Syngnathidae. Pipefish look like straight-bodied seahorses with tiny mouths. The name is derived from the peculiar form of their snout, which is like a long tube, ending in a narrow and small mouth which opens upwards and is toothless. Most species of pipefish are usually 35–40 cm in length. This one was only about 8-10cm long.

Titan Trigger fish

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Titan Trigger fish

Filmed 3/12/1993 at the Ribbon reef No3, Great Barrier Ref, Australia The titan triggerfish, Balistoides viridescens, is the largest of the triggerfish species and can grow up to 75 cm in length (30 inches). Their range includes reef areas in the Indo-Pacific region, including Australia, Fiji, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and the Maldives, also in the Red Sea. The fish is not a pelagic species and generally lives in the flat areas of the reef. Titan triggerfish feed on shellfish, urchins, crustaceans and coral. They are the workers of the reef, often being busy turning over rocks, stirring up the sand and biting off pieces of branching coral. This is why one often sees other smaller fish species around it who feed from the left overs.

Byron Bay 1985

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Byron Bay 1985

This is Byron Bay 1985.Filmed with an old Beta Movie camera. A very nice and interesting dive site at Julian Rocks, not to be forgotten easily. Plenty of fish and pleasantly warm waters, even in winter. Lots of things to do and friendly people. I can certainly recommend this dive site. Byron Bay is located in the Northern Rivers region in NSW, just off the Pacific Highway, 800kms north of Sydney, 170kms south of Brisbane (about 90kms south of the Gold Coast). There are two airports in the vicinity with a train station and bus depot located in the centre of town.

Vättern in Sweden 1986

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Vättern in Sweden 1986

Lake Vättern in Sweden 1986, a very long lake in the south part of Sweden. Filmed with one of earlier Beta Movie video cameras in an acrylic home made case. The diving equipment is the AGA type bottles and full woollen suits had to be worn under the dive suite to keep the cold out. It is very cold, even in summer it’s only +10 deg C at 10m depths. We caught one sluggish fish with our bare hands and found some very old pieces of timber, which were completely turned black. This is rests of old log houses thousand years ago, when the north of the long lake was raised and south part sunk and many houses got flooded.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Nudibranchs

A nudibranch is a member of what is now a taxonomic clade, and what was previously a suborder, of soft-bodied, shell-less marine opisthobranch gastropod molluscs, which are noted for their often extraordinary colors and striking forms. The clade Nudibranchia is the largest clade within the heterobranchs, with more than 3,000 described species. The word "nudibranch" comes from the Latin nudus, naked, and the Greek brankhia, gills. Nudibranchs are often casually called "sea slugs", a non-scientific term. This has led some people to assume that every sea slug must be a nudibranch. Nudibranchs are very numerous in terms of species, and are often very attractive and noticeable, but there are a wide variety of other kinds of sea slugs, and these belong to several taxonomic groups that are not very closely related to nudibranchs. A fair number of these other sea slugs are colourful, and can be confused with nudibranchs.

Coral Spawning

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Coral Spawning

Filmed 8 December 1990 at Lady Musgrave Lagoon at 21:10, in the Capricorn and Bunker Group at Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia. Corals are marine organisms from the class Anthozoa and exist as small sea anemonelike polyps. The group includes the important reef builders that are found in tropical oceans, which secrete calcium carbonate to form a hard skeleton. They are formed from thousands of individual but genetically identical polyps, each polyp only a few millimeters in diameter. They grow by asexual reproduction of the individual polyps. Corals also breed sexually by spawning, with corals of the same species releasing gametes simultaneously over a period of one to several nights around a full moon. Although corals can catch small fish and animals such as plankton using stinging cells on their tentacles, these animals obtain most of their nutrients from photosynthetic unicellular algae called zooxanthellae. Consequently, most corals depend on sunlight and grow in clear and shallow water. These corals are develop in tropical and subtropical waters, such as the enormous Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland, Australia.
