City in the Sea and Star Gardens

City in the Sea and Star Gardens are part of a documentary series called Wondrous Secrets of the Ocean Realm. This part of the series discusses the relationships between the animals on the reef. For example, the Grouper fish saw shrimp waving it’s antennas. The Grouper fish then turns colors to match the rocks and coral around them symbolizing safety to the shrimp. The shrimp then cleans the Grouper.

Color helps animals communicate with each other. The Coral Squid changes colors to communicate. Some scientist believe that squid have their own language. When a female is ready to mate, she develops a black line under she eyes. When a male squid sees this, he turns colors to fight off other squid.

City in the Sea and Star Gardens helped me answer my guiding questions because I was able to see the relationships of the animals in the coral reef. I was able to see animals depend on each other for food, cleaning, and life to the coral reef. Thus making the ecosystem of the coral reef work.
