Male lyretail anthias (Pseudanthias squamipinnis). The male fish can reach a length of up to 15 centimetres, whereas the female is around 7 centimetres. This fish feeds predominantly on zooplankton. Colour patterns change as the fish moves from one location to the next, so that it can blend into its surroundings to hide from predators. Photographed in the Red Sea, Thailand.
