Spawning ruby brittle star

Pamela K July 31, 2004

Cool! Great capture and I really like the color patterns in the shot. Very abstract looking with a great surprise if you take the time to look closely.

Is the yellow starfish the male or just a random passerby?

Thanks, Pam. Re your question, Paul Humann, author of Caribbean Reef Creatures could not verify the identity of the yellow brittle star. Could be a color variation of the Ruby or a completely different type, which would make it a casual spectator at this event.
