A sandfish sea cucumber that is a much sought after delicacy.

A beautiful Anemone Shrimp with carpet anemone
A Upside Down Jelly fish. This jellyfish has symbiotic algae in its tentacles, which photosynthesises better with it being upside-down. The jellyfish obtains energy from the food provided by the algae.
A Sunflower Mushroom Coral
