Caption: Yellow-nose goby (Gobiosoma randalli) hiding in a stove-pipe sponge (Aphysina archeri). The yellow- nose goby is a small fish that feeds primarily on tiny crustaceans. It lives in the West Alantic Ocean and grows to a length of between two and five centimetres. The stove-pipe sponge is a primitive animal containing no muscle or nerve cells. They filter water through their bodies, extracting plankton for nutrition. This sponge can reach two metres in height. Photographed off Andros Island in the Bahamas, in the Caribbean Sea.
