Oooh.... Hermodice carunculata. They're so photogenic! Much prettier than any fish. ;)

I'm so jealous! If we have similar species in so-cal, I haven't seen one yet.

WE have one big fireworm, Eurythoe complanata, that wanders up from the south in warm water years. It's not nearly as pretty. There are two color morphs, an orange one & a greenish-gray-blue one but it doesn't have the yellow & black lines across the back or the big red tuft right behind the head.
Cheers, Leslie
