162. Emperor Angelfish (Pomacanthus imperator)


Subject: The Emperor Angelfish (Pomacanthus imperator) with its unique brilliant coloration is omnivorous. It feeds mainly on sponges and algae and has bulky, strong jaws, which are made up of tiny, needle-like pieces of silica. When juvenile, they act as cleaner fish, feeding on parasites and dead skin of other species.

Technique: To accentuate the movement of the Angelfish’s mouth we added a little snapping sound in post-production.
