    Hi MASA members. My name is Muhammed, and I am from Durban. I am not an owner of a marine tank, but a tropical tank instead.

    I am currently on holiday at margate, and have identified some species at the local beach for which I require an ID. I am not a 100% certain if this is the best forum for such a request, but assume your knowledge in this field will of assistance.

    On image one, what are those small fishes, and red, green and pink plants on that rock?

    Image 2 , name of yellow plant

    Image 3 name of red species, and one next to it

    Image 4, green plant/coral
    Inage 5 name this specie. Slime below can be used as bait

    Image 6. Looks like plankton

    Thanks

    1 - Green is a type of Caulerpa algae, Caulerpa filiformis I think. The pink ones are branching types of corraline algae. The fish look like a type of damsel fish.
    6 - Lettuce algae (Ulva species)
