The reef cuttlefish or broadclub cuttlefish (Sepia latimanus) is the second largest cuttlefish species after Sepia apama, growing to 50 cm in mantle length and 10 kg in weight. Like many cephalopods, the broadclub can be seen displaying a range of colors and textures. Commonly they are light brown or yellowish with white mottled markings. Males are sometimes dark brown, particularly during courtship and mating. They mate in shallow water between January and May. Their eggs hatch in 38 to 40 days. During the breeding season, males establish a territory, defending a coral head where females lay eggs after mating. Courtship is highly ritualized and involves striking visual displays. Males often guard females to ward off other males.
One of the fish that I’ve always wanted to own!

This is a juvenile emperor angelfish (Pomacanthus imperator). The emperor angelfish is a species of marine angelfish. It is a reef-associated fish, native to the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Juveniles are dark blue with electric blue and white rings; adults have yellow and blue stripes, with black around the eyes. The two look completely different and would appear to be a different species to one that does not know about the species. It takes about 24 to 30 months for an emperor angelfish to acquire its adult colouring. They grow to 40 cm (15.75 in) in length.
These two posts showed up one after another on my Tumblr and made me laugh =)
