Fairy Basslet
Gramma loreto

A shy Fairy Basslet hovers over brain coral. The green hue of the coral is due to the presence of symbiotic algae within its cells.

Roatan, Honduras
 
Sea Facts:

Zooxanthallae (symbiotic algae) provide such a benefit to many corals that the corals can no longer survive without their presence.
