Coral cod (Cephalopholis miniata) in front of a sea fan, or gorgonian. The coral cod is a type of grouper. It is a predator, feeding mainly on small shoaling fish but also feeding on crustaceans on occasion. It is found down to depths of around 150 metres in tropical waters in the Indo-Pacific region. It may reach a length of around 40 centimetres. A sea fan is a coral-like colony of filter-feeding organisms. Photographed in the Andaman Sea, Thailand.
