When I was in the Solomon Islands last November a fellow diver told me about a pearlfish he had just seen sticking out of a sea cucumber. I was interested in photographing the pearlfish, so I went seaching in the area he described. I never found the cucumber hosting the pearlfish, but I did find one carrying nudibranch eggs. The egg ribbon was neatly coiled in the middle of the cucumber's back.
Interestingly, it was just a few meters away from another bizarre nudibranch find, the two Gymnodoris nigricolor on the shrimp goby.
Depth: about 15 meters,
Divesite: Wickum Island, New Georgia Group, Solomon Islands

Thanks Mary Jane,
Certainly strange place to lay eggs, but I guess as long as the holothurian didn't start burrowing, they would be safe for a while.
