ANEMONE

ANEMONE

6855-7135

Sea anemones are a group of marine, predatory animals of the order Actiniaria. They are named after the anemone, a terrestrial flowering plant, because of the colourful appearance of many. Anemones are classified in the phylum Cnidaria, class Anthozoa, subclass Hexacorallia.

BUTTONS

BUTTONS

7891-7905

Zoanthids are very attractive colonial anemones. They can make a colorful addition to the hard surfaces of the reef aquarium. They come in all sorts of colors from browns and grays to bright orange, red, yellow, green, blue and many color morphs.

CAULIFLOWER

CAULIFLOWER

7935-7997

A hardy, widespread and common coral can be identified by the presence of wart-like growths, called verrucae, which cover the colonies and they can be fairly solid and dome-shaped, or branching with branches that are either flattened, or fine and irregular. Species of Pocillopora corals vary greatly in appearance, depending on environmental conditions.

Crabs

Crabs

6195-6245

Crabs are generally covered with a thick exoskeleton, composed primarily of highly mineralized chitin,and armed with a single pair of chelae (claws).

LOBSTER

LOBSTER

6145-6165

Lobsters are invertebrates with a hard protective exoskeleton. Like most arthropods, lobsters must moult to grow, which leaves them vulnerable. During the moulting process, several species change colour. Lobsters have 10 walking legs; the front three pairs bear claws, the first of which are larger than the others

OCTOPUS

OCTOPUS

6565

The octopus a soft-bodied, eight-armed mollusc of the order Octopoda. Like other cephalopods, the octopus is bilaterally symmetric with two eyes and a beak, with its mouth at the centre point of the arms. Nearly all octopuses are predatory; bottom-dwelling octopuses eat mainly crustaceans, polychaete worms, and other molluscs such as whelks and clams;

POLYP

POLYP

7695-7867

A polyp in zoology is one of two forms found in the phylum Cnidaria, the other being the medusa. Polyps are approximately cylindrical in shape and elongated at the axis of the vase-shaped body. In solitary polyps, the aboral end is attached to the substrate by means of a disc-like holdfast called the pedal disc, while in colonies of polyps it is connected to other polyps, either directly or indirectly. The oral end contains the mouth, and is surrounded by a circlet of tentacles.

SEA CUCUMBER & SEA APPLE

SEA CUCUMBER & SEA APPLE

6745-6775

Sea apple is a common name for the colorful and somewhat round sea cucumbers of the genera Paracucumaria and Pseudocolochirus, found in Indo-Pacific waters. 
Sea cucumbers are echinoderms from the class Holothuroidea. They are marine animals with a leathery skin and an elongated body containing a single, branched gonad. Sea cucumbers are found on the sea floor worldwide

SEA SLUG

SEA SLUG

6480-6525

Sea slug is a common name for some marine invertebrates that more or less resemble terrestrial slugs. Most creatures known as sea slugs are actually snails, i.e. they are sea snails (marine gastropod molluscs) that over evolutionary time have seemingly lost their shells, due to having a greatly reduced or internal shell.

SEA STAR

SEA STAR

6285-6345

Starfish or sea stars are star-shaped echinoderms belonging to the class Asteroidea. Starfish are marine invertebrates. They typically have a central disc and five arms, though some species have a larger number of arms. The aboral or upper surface may be smooth, granular or spiny, and is covered with overlapping plates.

SEA URCHIN

SEA URCHIN

6665-6720

Sea urchins or urchins, archaically called sea hedgehogs. The shell, or “test”, of sea urchins is round and spiny, typically from 3 to 10 cm (1.2 to 3.9 in) across. Common colors include black and dull shades of green, olive, brown, purple, blue, and red. Sea urchins move slowly, feeding primarily on algae. Sea otters, starfish, wolf eels, triggerfish, and other predators hunt and feed on sea urchins.

SHRIMPS

SHRIMPS

6015-6105

Shrimp are swimming crustaceans with long narrow muscular abdomens and long antennae. Unlike crabs and lobsters, shrimp have well developed pleopods (swimmerets) and slender walking legs; they are more adapted for swimming than walking.

SPONGES

SPONGES

8024-8055

Sponges are the basalmost clade of animals of the phylum Porifera. They are multicellular parazoan organisms that have bodies full of pores and channels allowing water to circulate through them, consisting of jelly-like mesohyl sandwiched between two thin layers of cells. Sponges have unspecialized cells that can transform into other types and that often migrate between the main cell layers and the mesohyl in the process. Sponges do not have nervous, digestive or circulatory systems. Instead, most rely on maintaining a constant water flow through their bodies to obtain food and oxygen and to remove wastes.

TUBE ANEMONES

TUBE ANEMONES

7162-7185

Tube-dwelling anemones or ceriantharians look very similar to sea anemones but belong to an entirely different subclass of anthozoans. They are solitary, living buried in soft sediments. Tube anemones live inside and can withdraw into tubes, which are composed of a fibrous material made from secreted mucus and threads of nematocyst-like organelles known as ptychocysts.

TUBEWORM

TUBEWORM

7215-7250

A tube worm is any worm-like sessile invertebrate that anchors its tail to an underwater surface and secretes around its body a mineral tube, into which it can withdraw its entire body.
