The reefs of Ogasawara may not be as colorful and vibrant as the indo-pacific, but boring and quiet it most certainly is not. The short video above proves just that, as it focuses on a lone sub-adult female Genicanthus takeuchii swimming along. The takeuchii angelfish shares its home with plenty of busy Pomacentrids as well as other members of its Pomacanthid family.
How many species of angelfish can you spot in this video? Better yet, how many interruptus angelfish can you spy in this short video? We counted 14 appearances on screen, including obscure ones in the background, not excluding possible repeats. The Ogasawara reefs houses more than just these few species, but bearing in mind the shortness of the clip and the small filming area, it’s pretty safe to say that there’s no shortage of angelfishes down there; or whales for that matter. Keep watching till the end for a pretty dramatic entrance of a large male takeuchii angelfish.
