An Iridescent Glassy Sponge and Deep Water Gorgonians.
|* In this image, the Iridescent
Glassy Sponge (Callyspongia plicifera) is nicely framed by the
Deep Water Gorgonian (Icilogorgia Schrammi). In the lower
right is a grayish sponge, probably (Ircinia strobilina). This
habitat lies on the margin of a drop off, and receives considerable
water flow perpendicular to the plane of the Gorgonians.
