1 hour of bio diversty

I believe that crown coral head was a great place to videotape all the biodiversity that is in the ocean. I am glad that I got to be part of this new project of finding a great place to find biodiversity. There were 8 small tooth emperors, 50 Arabian Monocle Bream, 12 Humpback snappers, 4 Red snappers, 8 Unicorn Fish, 9 Humpnose Bigeye Bream, 57 Rabbit Fish, 56 Brushtail Tang,50 Sixbar Wrasse, 52 Staghorn Damsel, 33 Moon Wrasse, 10 Soldier Fish, 4 Yellowtail Coris (wrasse), 6 Orange Lined Triggerfish, 52 Lined Bristletooth, 12 Striped Surgeonfish, 4 Lemonpeel Angelfish, 9 Moorish Idol (Angelfish), 10 Goatfish, 13 Parrot Fish, 2 Hexagon Grouper, 2 Threadfin Butterfly.

In this project I learned that there is a lot more diversity in the ocean than I thought there was because we saw so many different kinds of fish and ones that I never even knew that they exist also that the ocean is one of the most diverse places on the entire planet. I truly thought that we would not find as many different species as we did.I loved all the wonderful crowd of fish that was coming by the coral head in the one hour of footage that we took.
