54. Get out of my territory! (Scorpion Leaffish and Damsel in a fight)

Subject: The temper and the toughness of Damsels are revealed in this clip. Although the Scorpion Leaffish (Taenianotus triacanthus) is armed with venomous spines that could easily and severely hurt the brave Threespot Dascyllus (Dascyllus trimaculatus), the attacker seems to fend the Scorpion Leaffish off with ease by hitting the Scorpaenoid hard with its tailfin to chase it out of its territory.

Technique: Keep the camera rolling… Way to often a recording is cut short for no obvious reason. It is very easy to cut out unwanted footage during the editing process. Puff and slap sounds were added to make the clip complete.
