Sport Diver, with the help of Ned and Anna DeLoach, Eric Riesch and Paul Humann, have complied a ‘50 Best Small Marine Animals’ list, even featuring the ever-famous Clown Anemonefish (Nemo). The 50 pictures show a wide variety of life from different species of sea horses, fish, shrimp and worms. The pictures are accompanied by their scientific name as well as a little blurb about what they do, giving divers that extra knowledge about what they might encounter. The pictures are full of colour and very interesting animals. They definitely make you want to grab your scuba gear straight away, book a holiday and go and experience what the ocean has to offer!

The shrimp are like a personalised car wash for fish. They signal their ‘customers’ over by waving their white antennae around, then feed off the parasites they clean off the fish.
