Concerning message #20058:

Dear Bill,
Here is another feeding information for Thecacera picta, Raja Ampat Indonesia. Within the same sponge there were 5-6 individuals feeding. They seemed to be enjoying the food. The strong current affected the quality of the pics as these guys are hard to find and focus as being "translucent clear".

Locality: Kri Island, Raja Ampat, 12 meters, Indonesia, Western Pacific , 20 March 2007, Reef wall . Length: About 1 cm. Photographer: Kerem Turker.

Regards,
Kerem

Dear Kerem,

It is not clear what your animals are eating. It won't be the sponge. In the middle photo I can see some 'plant-like' growths which may be bryozoan colonies, but its not clear enough to be certain

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
