Sea Goldies in the Blue Hole

freediving blue hole

A swarm of female sea goldies (Pseudanthias squamipinnis) adds a splash of color to the coral drop-off in the Blue Hole. The male sea goldie retains a harem of 5-10 females, which is why the number of females usually always far outnumber males. When the male dies one of the females will undergo sex reversal and take the place of the missing male.
