Caption: Stove-pipe sponge (Aplysina archeri) on a coral reef. Sponges are primitive animals whose bodies contain no muscle or nerve cells. They filter water through their bodies, extracting plankton for nutrition. The stove-pipe sponge can reach two metres in height. It is found on coral reefs at between two and 40 metres in depth.
