Golden damselfish (Amblyglyphidodon aureus) and blue-green chromis (Chromis viridis) over branching table coral (Acropora sp.). These species of damselfish inhabit reefs in the tropical Indo-Pacific region, from the eastern Indian Ocean to the Pacific islands. The golden damselfish prefers steep reef walls with strong currents, where it feeds on zooplankton. The blue-green chromis flee to the safety of the coral branches at the slightest hint of danger. Photographed in Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
