Peacock Grouper

Cephalopholis argus

Description:

Peacock Grouper & Whitemouth Moray Eel swimming together. A fight over the territory was my first guess, but after reading about the two species I learned they often work together to scare prey out from the reef and capture it. Apparently seeing the two working together is actually quite common.
