Here’s an expectant anemone fish guarding its eggs. These eggs are very close to hatching. If you look closely, you can see the eyes of the baby fish. The parent comes out from the anemone not only to chase away potential predators, but also to aerate the eggs by blowing water over them.

Porcelain crab in anemone.

And since somewhere along the way the metadata is getting stripped, all of these shots are with Olympus OM-D EM-5 with the 12-50mm lens in macro mode (at 43mm) in a Nauticam housing. One Sea & Sea YS-100alpha strobe.
