Caption: Splendour wrasse and Red Sea goatfish. Abudjubbe's splendour wrasse (Cheilinus abudjubbe, top) following a feeding Red Sea goatfish (Parupeneus forsskali). The Red Sea goatfish digs holes in sandy seabeds to feed on small invertebrates. The cloud of sand produced by the digging attracts the wrasse, which feeds on any animals missed by the goatfish. Photographed in the Red Sea, Egypt.
