[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During low tide the Ophiomastix emerge by the hundreds, and each of them has a different design and colors, there I want to show someone in a small series.

Biota > Animalia (Kingdom) > Echinodermata (Phylum) > Asterozoa (Subphylum) > Ophiuroidea (Class) > Ophiurida (Order) > Ophiurina (Suborder) > Gnathophiurina (Infraorder) > Ophiocomidae (Family) > Ophiocominae (Subfamily)

Natural Environment: Inhabits protected reef areas
General Husbandry: Has a temperature range of 72 to 83°F (22 - 28°C). Total diameter including spines is about 8 inches (20 cm) and feeds upon organic matter/detritus. Rarely seen in the trade, and/or usually misidentified. Not safely kept with encrusting invertebrate. Needs plenty of green matter.
Pic taken underwater.

Durante la bassa marea gli Ophiomastix emergono a centinaia,ed ognuno di essi ha un disegno e colori differenti,ve ne voglio mostrare qualcuno in una piccola serie.

Hello Luciano.
Beautiful series of sea creatures and this one is definitely attractive. It is also amazing that they come in different sizes and colors. This one is in such great details.
Thanks and have a great weekend coming.

Hello Luciano
You've captured a very interesting Ophiomastix, it almost looks prehistoric with all it's intricate body detail. The detail and colour is great, especially since you took this under water, great job!
