Habitat: in the Pacific Ocean, ranging from the Ogasawara Islands in north to the Great Barrier Reef in south, and east to the Pitcairn Islands
Thanks for 📸to @stan.jazwinski taken in Marshall Islands
Max length is 7 cm
The males are steely purple overall with the head encapsulated in yellow. The dorsum just beneath the dorsal fin is yellow washed, but is peppered so heavily in purple spots that in some extreme cases, the underlying yellow is obliterated completely. These purple spots tend to remain circular and distinct, which is an important characteristic when comparing with specimens in other locales. The dorsal fin is red only on the anterior spiny portion, and hyaline or yellow tinted on the soft portion. The leading edge of the soft dorsal fin is also unmarked with no purple lines. Caudal fin is largely clear and unmarked, except for a pair of vertical purple lines. The anal fin is clear, but has a strong purple line delimiting a more deeply colored region corresponding to the anal spines and first rays which form the elongate leading edge of the fin
The females share the same steely purple ground coloration, but are unmarked except for a yellow dorsal fin which creeps to a sliver of the dorsum before ending obliquely at the caudal peduncle. A red arching stripe separates the two colours near the posterior portion of the dorsum. Females lack secondary coloration such as the purple spotting that the males possess
It feeds on larvae of crustaceans and fish eggs

[🇺🇸] For @travel_with_pauli, #diving is a form of meditation. It makes her 𝗹𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁, exploring the other world we don't see. 🙏🧜♀️
And after a long morning's #dive , there's nothing like exploring the town until you find a quiet #beach to #relax in.

🇩🇪 Finde dieses Bild eignet sich hervorragend für den obligatorischen „es ist so heiß oh Mann was für eine Hitze“-Post. ☀️ Frohes Schwitzen miteinander, schön viel trinken, und falls ihr Tipps habt wie man einen Bürotag gut übersteht, immer her damit. 😉 . .. 🇺🇸 Unfortunately diving is not part of my training plan this week, but at least looking at this picture from our training in Marseille immediately and effectively lowers my body temperature by 0.2 degrees. 😉☀️ What’s your life hack for working during heat waves?
Pool activity before you go for real to the ocean always been fun ! 😍

Komodo National Park includes one of the richest marine environments including coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass beds, seamounts, and semi-enclosed bays. 🐚 These habitats harbor more than 1,000 species of fish 🐟🐠🐡, some 260 species of reef-building coral, and 70 species of sponges. Dugong, sharks, manta rays, at least 14 species of whales, dolphins, and sea turtles also make the Park their home. The marine area constitutes 67% of the Park. The open waters in the Park are between 100 and 200 m deep. The straits between Rinca and Flores and between Padar and Rinca, are relatively shallow (30 to 70 m deep), with strong tidal currents. In the North of the Park water temperature ranges between 25 – 29°C. In the middle, the temperature ranges between 24 and 28°C. The temperatures are lowest in the South, ranging from 22 – 28°C. Water salinity is about 34 ppt and the water is quite clear, although the waters closer to the islands are relatively more turbid. 🦑🦀 Discover some part of the #wonderfulIndonesia with Scuba Republic's Komodo Liveaboards!

Say hello to California’s state marine fish- the Garibaldi, a species of bright orange fish in the damselfish family. The one pictured above is actually a Juvenile, deeper orange with sparkling spots of blue with blue-trimmed fins. I just love how vividly colorful they are!
Garibaldi have several natural predators including larger fish, some sharks, seals and sea lions and on Santa Catalina Island, Bald Eagles. They are sometimes caught on hook and line and, because of their territorial nature, are easy prey for fishermen or divers using spears. However!! These fish are protected in California and it is illegal to take or hold them without a permit from the California Department of Fish and Game such as the Aquarium of the Pacific. #garibaldi#garibaldifish#california
