Red Rock Cod

This Rock Cod can be seen well camouflaged against bright colourful coral. To the naked eye it looks similar to the dark fish in the background without the strobe lights illuminating his brilliance. This fish was enjoying time on a cleaner station where shrimps and cleaner fish attend to personal grooming both of its skin and inside its mouth to remove parasitic growth. Rock Cod are a game fish which prey on smaller fry but all aggression diminishes when at a cleaner station, as can be seen by it being surrounded by small sea goldies and other reef dwellers.
