Snowflake Moray Eel

Snowflake Moray Eel: Can be found in Indo-Pacific including Philippines and they live between rocks and corals of inter-tidal reef flats, also in shallow lagoon and seaward reefs.

They have a maximum 1 meter long and can live in 15-20 years. They also eat crustaceans. They are large fish with no pectoral or pelvic fins, but has extremely strong body that it uses to swim through the water like a snake does on the land. The fish has a big mouth that packs the powerful bite. The body color consist of black and white patchy stripes and blotches which is where the Eel gets its common name of "Snowflake".

Shrimpfish ("Isdang Sikwan" in Filipino language) - can be found in Indo-Pacific, including the Philippines. They form schools among the spines of Diadema orchins or staghorn corals. They eat tiny crustaceans in the zooplankton. They are remarkable for their strange body shape and swimming habit: body is encased in an armor of thin, transparent plates, they swim in synchronized groups, each fish in a vertical position with snout pointing downwards.
