Sweetlips and Red emporers

Sweetlips

Look for the beautiful Harlequin Sweetlips in caves, cracks and swim throughs or under big plate coral. this is a shy fish named after his most obvious feature. if you are lucky, you might find the famous disco dancer. those are the juvenile sweetlips, usually spotted inside a patch of stag horn coral or in any other good hiding place.they are very colorful and they never stop moving in their flappy real quick way that looks like a crazy dance and gave them their name.

Red Emperors

Emperors are usually found over sandy areas adjacent to reefs where they forage for crabs, sand dollars, fish and other bottom-dwelling organisms. The Red Emperor is one of the oldest fish in the reef living up to 50 years old. Juveniles live in shallow water seagrass beds and mangroves, moving offshore as they grow. Sex changes from female to male occur as the emperor grows.

The red emperor is a very handsome fish, glowing salmon pink to bright red, its pink fins tipped in bright crimson or red, and three distinctive darker red bands sweeping up its face, pectoral fin to back and down again to the anal area. Easily recognized underwater the emperor is truly the king of its domain.
