One of my favorite little fishes -- a Flame Goby I saw while scuba diving in Anilao, Philippines.

When I see beautiful patterns and colors like this in sea creatures, I have to remember they're Animals, not plants! This is a top-down view of a Christmas Tree Worm, a tiny animal that lives in a hole in the coral and extends its feathery filters into the water to catch plankton for lunch.

One of my favorite little fish -- these Fairy Basselets were very common in the waters surrounding Little Cayman Island last week.

Monster of the reefs: the Lionfish

This beautiful fish is wonderful to see in the Indonesia, the Philippines, or Australia, but is a devastating invasive species in the Caribbean where it has no natural predator -- nothing to stop its voracious appetite. They have great defenses -- poisonous spines -- and aren't aggressive, but lie in wait for their dinner to swim by. As a result of this invasion, the normal reef fish population in the Caribbean is much reduced.

Divers who get training are allowed to hunt them and some restaurants are starting to add lionfish to the menu. Apparently, the fish breed at 300+ feet depths, so eradicating them is unlikely. They're expected to spread down the Atlantic coast of South America within the next decade.

Bottom line: go diving now, while there is still a variety of fish to see.
