Caption: Blackspotted Sweetlips fish (Plectorhynchus gaterinus) hiding beneath coral. This fish is a brightly coloured species of grunt that often live in large schools in shallow water. Juvenile Blackspotted Sweetlips have black lines on their heads and bodies, which become spots as they age. Grunts are so named because they can emit sounds by rubbing their well developed throat teeth together. These sounds are sometimes audible over considerable distances. Grunts are found in all warm seas. Photographed in the Red Sea, Egypt.
