Blue Coral was established in 1989, and we asked HIRO as one
of the representative of the company who knows the details of marine creatures in
1. Ardeadoris Egretta Rudman
Body color of ardeadoris is white, and the back-center changes from translucent white to yellowish white. An orange line enters the outer periphery of the mantle.
The antenna is luminous white with white vertical lines at the front and rear of the leaf.
The secondary wrinkles are also translucent white, and the shaft is white.
2. Purple Anthias
A fish that can be easily distinguished about their gender (male / female) thru color. As its name suggests, it has beautiful colors indeed.
Pink color of fish is rare to see in the water, very cute and its nice to see them when they are in a group.
3. Rolland's Demoiselle
Rolland's Demoiselle is also known as blackcap damsel, bluehead damsel. It is found singly or in small schools over corals and rocks of protected harbors, lagoons, inner and outer reef slopes.
4. Roboastra Gracilis
Roboasrtra Garcilis is quite small nembrothid,
growing to about 20-25mm in length. Characterized by the yellow longitudinal
lines which are sometimes quite obscure. These lines consist of a series of
glandular pits which secrete a bright yellow substance when disturbed.
A group of batfish in the Coral Sea, a small family of seven genera the only one found in shallow water is Platax, five species of large round silvery fish with their inquisitive personalities, calm behavior and stunning are much by divers.
6. Yellowbanded Sweetlips
Typical tropical fish with striped pattern, black stripes and yellow fins. The Adult yellowbanded sweetlips have black stripes running obliquely along the upper body from head and tail. The lips and fins are yellow with lines break into spots in the centre of the body. They are usually undergo dramatic colour change as they grow and they are typical active at night.It looks a bit intimidating with its unique appearance, but it looks lovely ☆
7. Many- spotted Sweetlips
This fish also known as brownie sweetlips / Harlequin Sweetlips and Spotted sweetlips. It can be found singly close to caves and under ledges during day, out hunting for food at night over clear lagoons and seaward reef rich in coral growth.
8. Ocellaris ClownFish
The fish from Disney Movie "NEMO", orange tropical nemo fish who live in the anemones which are like plants under the sea.
9. Spinecheek Anemonefish
A type of fish that cannot be seen in Japan.
It's like the anemone fish "NEMO". Amphiprion Clownfish are all female when born, as they grow up their gender will change into male. Strange to hear that their gender changes during the growth process.
10. Yellow Boxfish
The yellow boxfish is a member of the Boxfish family and is understood to grow no larger than 45cm. When juvenile, it is bright yellow in color. As it ages, the brightness fades and very old specimens will have blue-grey to black colour with faded yellow.
Recreational divers can find these fish as deep as 40 metres.
11. Banded Cavalla
A flock of horse mackerel inhabiting shallows.
Since horse mackerel is a very weak fish, it acts in a flock unique to small fish!
To make them look bigger.
I was able to see it even in the experience diving, but I was surprised at the power!
It looks like a really big fish ...! !
12. Red- cheeked fairy basslet / Pseundanthias Huchtii
This species is known to jump out of open aquaria. A fish that can change gender from female to male. When a male is needed, a female changes sex and takes on the role. This species also is good hiding in any places, for example, between live rocks.
13. Candycane Pygmy Goby
Cute name and cute looking fish.
This species is very shy and docile, so one should be careful when keeping it with more aggressive fish. This species also can change gender from male to female and vice versa. They can live on their owkn or in a group.
Lucky if you can see by diving because it doesn't live in Japan ☆
14. Springer's Demoiselle
This is a peaceful, highly desirable damselfish. When this species is stressed, its overall color darkens and the blue becomes less apparent.
Fish with a black body and a blue pattern.
When you shoot in the dark sea, it seems strange that only the blue part is floating!
15. Talbot's Demoiselle
Two or three small fish that act together.
Things like black marks in the fins grow as they grow up.
This is a rare fish that doesn't live in Japan.
