Description
Male Cardinalfishes are known for the unusual behavior of incubating egg masses in their mouths. Often their mouths are so engorged that the egg masses are clearly visible between open lips. When I found this small cardinalish, he was staying near the sea urchin, I think he is trying to protect his babies and himself.
