The Maxima Clam(Tridacna maxima) also known as the Small Giant Clam or the blue-lipped clam is one of the most widely recognized species of giant clams. The beauty of its mantle with its rich variety of patterns and vivid colorations makes for a spectacular display. Maxima Clams are known to live together in great congregations, and they can attain a maximum size of 12” in the wild. Photo credit: Alex Cearns
Blue Lipped Clams - Small Giant Clams~Tridacna Maxima is a species of bivalve found throughout the Indo-Pacific.The attractive colours of the small giant clam are the result of pigment cells, which have a crystalline structure inside. These are thought to protect the clam from the effects of intense sunlight, or bundle light to enhance photosynthesis, the energy-producing process carried out by the tiny algae living within.

#OneTigris' share#Blue Lobster There is an extremely rare marine life-blue lobster in Brittany, only a blue lobster would born in an average of 1 million lobsters, is comparable to the living fossil of rare marine life.
One in 2-5 million lobsters are blue. A genetic defect causes a blue lobster to produce an excessive amount of protein. The protein and a red carotenoid molecule known as astaxanthin, combine to form a blue complex known as crustacyanin, giving the lobster its blue color. #sea #sealife #underwater
The blue lobster is 1 in 2 million. Recently one was caught off the coast of Maine. The fellow's daughter named it Skylar :) and is donating the rare crustacean to the Maine Aquarium that already has 3 other blue lobsters and an orange one.he look scary and angry as hell

Octopuses have 2 eyes and 4 pairs of arms and are bilaterally symmetric. An octopus has a hard beak, with its mouth at the center point of the arms. Octopus lack an internal or external skeleton allowing them to squeeze through tight places. Octopuses are among the most intelligent and behaviorally flexible of all invertebrates.

It’s a blue ribbon eel (Rhinomuraena quaesita), which almost looks like a dragon. Absolutely breathtaking!
The ribbon eel or Bernis eel, is a species of moray eel. The presumed juveniles and subadults are jet black with a yellow dorsal fin, in adult males the black is replaced by blue, and adult females are entirely yellow or yellow with some blue to the posterior.

Blue Ribbon Eel
The ribbon eel (Rhinomuraena quaesita) is a species of saltwater eel and it is the only member of the genus Rhinomuraena of the Muraenidae (Moray eel) family of the order of Anguilliformes. Though it is now known as Rhinomuraena quaesita but it also includes the former Rhinomuraena amboinensis. Ribbon eel in juveniles Unlike most other eels, ribbon eels change color and sex during their life. The eel is an elegant creature with a long, thin body and high dorsal fins and it can easily be recognized by its expanded anterior nostrils. Juveniles and sub-adults are nearly black with a yellow dorsal fin. As they mature, a female becomes yellow with a black anal fin with white margins on the fins and the adult males are blue with a yellow dorsal fin. The ribbon eel have leaflike nostril flaps, which sense vibrations in the water. The eel grows to an overall length of 100 (approx) cm and has a life span of up to twenty years. Unfortunately, the ribbon eel is a difficult fish to keep though it is one of the most interesting of the moray species. It has several unique characteristics that are why it should place in its own family, the Rhinomuraenidae. A pair of adult Ribbon eel Ribbon eels make striking display sea creature for the home aquarium, but in some captive setups they may refuse to feed. To help initiate feeding in a stubborn ribbon eel provide adequate hiding places, so your eel feels secure. The ribbon eel is native to the Indian and Pacific oceans and live on coral reefs, mostly hiding in crevices. Be aware that ribbon eels are especially proficient at finding small cracks and holes in the aquarium back stripping to exit through. Finally if it is possible to keep a ribbon eels in your aquarium, you need to be willing to give it special care.

Sea Scallops, beautiful creatures, all but destroyed in the BP oil spill. I remember always being aware of seagulls overhead when we lived on Nantucket, MA. You had to be ready to move quick if there were incoming scallop drops. The gulls looked for hard surfaces to break the scallops open easily.

Sea scallops...I always wondered what that kind of seashell came from
Lovely blue-eyed scallops
Click on an image to see a larger version, then use your BACK button to come back to the Blog. With black crude spewing in the Gulf, and the resulting cloud of poison moving ever closer to Florida's coast, I am seeing the beauty and bounty of our clear clean waters with new eyes. Like so many Floridians, Crystal and I are taking every opportunity to visit our beaches and swim in the Gulf. This summer (scallop season), that has meant going scalloping. The scallops apparently don't know about the oil yet and have flocked to the seagrass beds of Florida's Nature Coast. Every year (for the 30 years I have been scalloping), I kick myself for not making the effort to photograph these incredibly beautiful sea creatures. Gather, shuck, saute, broil on-the-halfshell... or freeze some for off-season, but not photograph. So this year, finally, I spent all day Saturday with photobuddies, John Moran (http://www.johnmoranphoto.com/) and Eric Zamora (http://www.ericzamora.com/), making scallop photos. (Well, we did have to collect some first, and then, why not shuck and eat them too?) John and I have been talking scallop-photographing strategies for a few months. Between his mastery of lighting and the contraptions and ideas we came up with, we had a fantastic and successful day. Eric is ever-mindful of documentation (a big failure on my part) and uses video, audio, and still photos to show the process and progress of the adventure. I look forward to seeing his piece on our day in the Gulf off of Keaton Beach. While scallops are social creatures for sure, you don't often see them this cozy. But they do make a great group portrait! Scallops see through those lovely blue eyes... and with eyes that beautiful, why not have a hundred of them instead of just two? Scallops don't sit around like other bivalves. They use their strong (delicious) muscle to swim by sucking in water and then jetting it out. This photo also shows the sea grass habitat of the Gulf of Mexico's bay scallop. This was a "failed" test shot as far as ambient light settings - the sea grass was supposed to show in the background. But the underexposure combined with bright flash (in a bag underwater) and the flecks of silt that we had stirred up came together to make this extraterrestrial delight. Nothing was altered here (except the viewer's perception). What intricate beauty! A jewel of the sea. The wind and waves made the water's surface tricky to shoot through (and most of the shots like this failed). But luck was with me on this one - the wavy surface creates the painterly quality, yet the detail and sharpness of the scallop is not obscured by reflections. The scallops we gathered for the background here would occasionally swim to the surface and shoot saltwater at my camera or flash, leaving bubbles as they sank back to the bottom. Quick reflexes were a must -- saltwater is BAD for cameras.

The colourful underwater world is mysterious and unfamiliar terrain to most of us. Though most of us have at least been in an ocean somewhere in the world, but, without expensive equipment, 70% of the planets surface remains off limits. The sea’s floor is a treasure-trove of creatures, colours, and textures The sea’s floor is a treasure-trove of creatures, colours, and textures that would send us into visual-overdrive. The most familiar of sea creatures such as coral, starfish, or octopus - produce some of the most stunningly unique colours and shapes. Too many to list in any one single blog post.
