Red Sea Fan

RED SEA

( Acabaria biserialis )

Clade : Cnidaria Depth : Deeper than -10 m Distribution : Red Sea Environment : Coral reef slopes Climate : Warm waters Notes :

The Red Sea Fan lives wirthin protected outer reefs starting from a depth of 10 m. This coral can grow around 1cm. per month, and like Annella mollis it orientates it’s fan transverse to the current. The branches consist of chalky parts connected by a horn-like material.

Crown Of Thorns Starfish

RED SEA

( Acanthaster planci )

Clade : Echinodermata Depth : -0.5 to -30 m Distribution : Red Sea to Central America Environment : Coral reef Climate : Warm waters Notes :

The Crown Of Thorns belongs (like sea urchins, brittle stars and other classes) to the clade of Echinodermata. The colour is very variable and can range from red over magenta to olive. Likewise variable is the number of arms (10-23). Coral polyps are the prefered nutrition, which already led to a wide destruction of coral reefs, in case of an outbreak. One should avoid the contact with the pricks, as painful injuries can develop in combination with a separately secreted poisonous mucus.

Low Acropora

RED SEA

( Acropora hemprichi )

Clade : Cnidaria Depth : -2 to -30 m Distribution : Red Sea to Sri Lanka Environment : Exposed reef slopes Climate : Warm waters Notes :

This Acropora species settles on exposed reef roofs and the upper section of the reef slopes. Acropora of the Red Sea in general are usually strongly colored, particularly at the axial polyps of the branch tips. They nourish themselves like many other stone coral of the photosynthesis products of the stored zooxanthells, but also of planctonic organisms.

Clade : Cnidaria Depth : -10 to -50 m Distribution : Red Sea and West Pacific Environment : Exposed reef slopes Climate : Warm waters Notes :

The Giant Sea Fan belongs to the class of the flower animals (Anthozoa) and always place their up to 2 meters large fans transverse to the sea current. Thus it can fish its food, small plancton, better out of water. This coral species is usually found in depths of down to 50 m. in the external reefs.

As representative species of the Brittle Stars class, the Naked Basket Star is part of the Echinodermata phylum, which also encompasses other sea urchins. The strongly ramified branches are very flexible by their small branch vertebrae. During the day Astroba nuda hides itself in columns and chinks within the reef, while they spread around their arms at night to catch food at exposed places.

Clade : Cnidaria Depth : -2 to –50 m. Distribution : Red Sea and West Pacific Environment : Sandy or muddy ground Climate : Warm waters Notes :

The carnation coral is part of the Soft corals. These do not possess a stable interior skeleton but attain their stability by hydrostatic pressure inside the body and by incorporated sclerits. These can often be remarkably colored. Carnation corals are known as pioneer settlers and inhabits from flat lagoons to deep reefs a wide variety of different habitats.

Mathaeus Sea Urchin

RED SEA

( Echinometra mathaei )

Clade : Echinodermata Depth : 0 to –8 m. Distribution : Red Sea to Polynesia Environment : Reef roofs, protected reef slopes Climate : Warm waters Notes :

Mathaeus Sea Urchin is a frequent inhabitant of the reef. He is to be found on the reef roof and at the upper reef slopes. During the day they hide themselves in holes (scraped by their own) in the coral rocks, before they come out at night to food search. The contrast between the reddish-brown pricks and the white basal ring is salient.

Clade : Cnidaria Depth : -0.3 to –25 m. Distribution : Red Sea to Polynesia Environment : Reef roofs, reef slopes, lagoons Climate : Warm waters Notes :

This kind of coral belongs to the clade of family of mushroom corals, with its vagile colonies. It settles usually on rubble or on dead corals within the entire ecological range of the coral reef. The roundish or oval disks can reach a diameter up to 24cm.

( Goniastrea edwardsi )

Clade : Cnidaria Depth : Varied Distribution : Red Sea to Samoa Environment : Shallow slopes Climate : Warm waters Notes :

This stone coral can occur either in single separated colonies or in a columnar variant. The colouring covers a spectrum from pink to pale colors. It has a relatively high need for light and it is nourished by the photosynthesis of the incorporated zooxanthells and by catched plankton.

( Halimeda sp. )

Clade : Chlorophyta (green algae) Depth : 0 to –50 m. Distribution : Tropical Environment : Between sea weed, on hard ground of reef slopes, on boulders Climate : Warm waters Notes :

The Halimeda algae settles usually on hard grounds and form by their individual chains close networks. The individual “leaves” of a chain consists to the majority of a chalky skeleton, that is visible if the algae dies.

Clade : Cnidaria Depth : -1 to –30 m. Distribution : Red Sea to Polynesia and South Africa Environment : deep lagoons, exposed coral reefs Climate : warm waters Notes :

The Magnificient Anemone can be found is in many different color morphs, from brown over yellow to violet. It settles mainly in deep lagoons and exposed outer reefs. When disturbed it forms a compact sphere, and stores their tentacles inside. The anemone is a host for the clown anemonefish (NEMO!), as well as for shrimps and porcelain crabs.

Clade : Cnidaria Depth : -0.3 to –30 m. Distribution : Red Sea to Polynesia Environment : Tidal zones of protected reefs, protected reef slopes, lagoons Climate : Warm waters Notes :

The Birds Nest Coral belongs to the Stone corals, which are the predominant reef constructing animals. It settles particularly in the tidal zone of protected reef roofs and lagoons. The colouring can reach bright beige of up to pink. It is a thin branched colony where polyps are often arranged in rows. There are to find however also forms with completely unordered polyp arrangement.

Colony Siphon Sponge

RED SEA

( Siphonochalina siphonella )

Clade : Porifera (sponges) Depth : -2 to –35 m. Distribution : Red Sea Environment : protected reef slopes, lagoons Climate : warm waters Notes :

The Colony Siphon Sponge belongs to the clade of sponges (porifera) which already for 500 million years exist on earth. These sessile (caked-on) animals are riddled with a duct system, which makes the closely related Euspongia to be used as a bath sponge. The animals can circulate up to twentyfold of the own body weight of water on one day and have thereby an important function as water filters in the ecological system of the reef.

Clade : Cnidaria Depth : Varied Distribution : Red Sea to Polynesia Environment : Reef slopes, in moderate currents Climate : Warm waters Notes :

The colonies are massive, columnar, laminar or foliae frequently contorted. The yellowish green colonies settle on little exposed slopes with moderate current. As a result of their robustness, they can be kept in aquaria without too much problems.

The pumping Xenia lives in flow kinds parts reef up to a depth of 20m. The polyps with its 5 cm long branches implement during the day constantly synchron pumping movements, which serve the respiration and food intake. However they nourish themselves to a majority by photosynthesis of the incorporated zooxanthels.
