Sea goldie fish (Pseudanthias squamipinnis) shoaling over coral. This is a territorial fish that inhabits coral reefs throughout the tropical Indo-Pacific region. Males, which can grow to twice the size of females, keep harems in a well- defended territory on the reef. The sea goldie, or fairy basslet, feeds mainly on zooplankton.
