5) Pufferfish changed from a side profile to face on view within legend.
6) More air bubbles have appeared.
7) More sea anemones have appeared.
8) A clownfish has joined the scene.
9) The pufferfish has puffed up, moved to the top of the puzzle, and is swimming toward you!


Fish love to swim — all the fish except the spotted unicornfish have moved:
10) Emperor angelfish and brick soldierfish swam forward slightly (larger in size), but did stay in the same area!
11)  Seahorse may be a slow swimmer, but moved MUCH closer in the scene.
12) Raccoon butterflyfish moved down and is swimming in the opposite direction.
13) Batfish moved up.
14) Green bird wrasse swam to the bottom right corner.
15) Rabbitfish swam to upper right corner and is now swimming in the opposite direction.
16) Blue tang is now hiding behind the threadfin butterflyfish and swimming in the opposite direction.
17) Blue palette fish is swimming in the opposite direction on the bottom left side of puzzle.
18) Bonefish swam up!
19) Picasso triggerfish is now swimming in the opposite direction halfway down the puzzle.
20) Bamboo shark is now swimming near the bottom above the green bird wrasse.
21) Permit fish is closer to you, but now behind the hogfish.
22) Zebra shark moved down just a bit… but now in front of the clown triggerfish.
23) Clown triggerfish is closer and now more in front of the spotted unicornfish.
24) Harlequin tuskfish moved down to the lower right corner – above the bamboo shark.

Tropical Traffic Trivia

• What percentage of the Earth’s surface is covered by saltwater?  72% or about 70%
• Can you name the Earth’s 5 Oceans?  Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic, Southern (Antarctic)
• Which ocean is the largest?  Pacific Ocean, it covers about 30% of the Earth’s surface and about half of the Earth’s water surface
• How many known species are in the Earth’s oceans?  230,000
• What percent of the oceans have been explored?  Only 5%!

• What male fish (not the female) cares for their young until birth?  Seahorses and sea dragons carry and hatch the babies
• Where are sea dragons found?  Southern and western coasts of Austrailia
• How can the Blue Tang inflict damage to an enemy?  They have extremely sharp pines on each side of their tail, which usually remain flat against the body.  They extend these spines when threatened or alarmed.  As the tail thrashes from side to side, the fish can inflict serious damage.
• What’s the primary difference between a fish and shark?  Their skeleton – most fish have bony skeletons, while sharks have cartilage or gristle, no bones.
• Why do marine predators avoid the rabbitfish?  They have sharp, poisonous spines.
• How does a batfish respond to danger?  They play dead – float motionless on their side when scared
• What is the largest fish?  Whale shark
• What is the fastest fish?  Sailfish, able to swim at a speed of 68 mph, followed by the marlin at 50 mph

• Triggerfish – They have two moveable spines on top of the fish.  When the larger forward spine is upright, the smaller one behind it (the trigger) can drop down securing the first in place.  This is used when a triggerfish swims into a hole or small crevasse in the reef to hold the fish tightly into its hiding place.
• Zebra Shark – When they are young they have stripes on their bodies that look similar to zebra’s stripes.
• Brick Soldierfish – They travel in very large schools and gather near the mouth of caves where they appear like sentries.
• Bonefish – Because of the number of tiny little bones in their body.

• How long does it take clownfish eggs to hatch?  About 7-10 days after they are laid, depending on the water temperature.
• What percentage of clownfish are born male?  All clownfish are born male.
• How do the anemone and clownfish help one another?  The anemone provides a safe and protective home for the clownfish.  The anemone’s tentacles have nematocysts (harpoon-like stingers) used to capture prey and ward off predators.  The clownfish benefits the anemones in ways such as, cleaning the anemone, providing nutrients in the form of waste and scaring away predatory fish such as the butterflyfish.
• What 2003 movie made clownfish most famous?  Finding Nemo

• Go by numerous names, can you name 5?  Puffers, Balloonfish, Flowfish, Globefish and Toadfish

• What makes them deadly?  Most pufferfish, when they inflate, release tetrodotoxin from their skin. One pufferfish carries enough toxins to kill 30 human adults!  Pufferfish are considered the second most poisonous creatures in the world, after the poison dart frog.
• Share what 2 traits with chameleons?  Can change color based on environment and can move their eyes independently.  Right eye moves in one direction and left eye in another – they have excellent eyesight.

• What is the world’s deepest dive?  Ahmed Gabr at about 1,090 feet into the Red Sea off the coast of Dehab, Egypt. He needed only 12 minutes to reach his record depth but to ensure safely back – required nearly 15 hours due to the various risks of water pressure at such depths
• What do these diving terms mean:
– BCD:  short for buoyancy control device, helps you gain a weight-less state while diving by inflating or deflating a bladder, also holds the tank
– One Atmosphere:  the pressure of the atmosphere at sea level (760 mm) caused by the weight of a column of water; 1 atmosphere equals about 14.6 pounds per square inch of pressure and increases 1 atmosphere about every 10 meters of depth
– The Bends:  decompression sickness caused by dissolved nitrogen leaving the tissues too quickly on ascent
– Rule of Thirds:  rule of thumb used by divers to plan dives so that they have enough breathing gas left in their diving cylinder; one third of breathing gas used to navigate to point of interest, one third used to return to starting point, and one third  held in reserve
– Galley:  the eating area on a dive boat, most boats don’t allow dive gear here
– Acronym PADI:  Professional Association of Diving Instructors
– Equalization:  clearing the ears to equalize the pressure in the middle ear with the outside pressure
– Acronym SCUBA:  self contained underwater breathing apparatus
– Frogman:  a person who swims underwater wearing a rubber suit, flippers and an oxygen supply
– Hookah:  surface supplied air that allows for unlimited air and no tank fills
