Marine Fish in Tidung Island








Various marine fishes can be found during snorkeling at Tidung Island, Kepulauan Seribu Jakarta listed below:

  

Indonesia: Dasi  Biru

Bluefin Damsel

Bluefin Damsel, Neoglyphidodon melas is also known as the Royal Damsel or the Zulu Damsel. Another common name, Bowtie Damsel, comes from the adult coloration (juvenile coloration pictured) where the body darkens and dark stripes appear near the gill area, thus resembling a bow tie. This fish is commonly found in the Indian & Pacific Oceans. The Neoglyphidodon genus are omnivores that thrive with a variety of prepared and frozen foods. Damsels are hardy and are reef safe. They will swim actively at all levels of the aquarium. It is fairly aggressive (moreso as an adult) and is a great fish for aquarists of all experience levels. 



Indonesia: Sersan Mayor

Sergeant Major Damsel

Sergeant Major Damsel, Abudefduf saxatilisis a beautiful fish with stripes of alternating colors running vertically along the body of the fish. This fish is commonly found in the Western Atlantic, including the New England, USA coastline. Damsels are hardy and are reef safe. They will swim actively at all levels of the aquarium. It is generally peaceful, but may be somewhat territorial and aggressive as an adult. As is typical with many fish of its family, its colors may be somewhat less distinct as the fish ages. A great fish for aquarists of all experience levels.






Indonesia: Coklat

Lawnmower Blenny

Lawnmower Blennies, Salarias fasciatus, can be found living in the coral rubble of several reefs of the Indo Pacific region. An amusing addition to the sand bed of your aquarium, Lawnmower Blennies are also useful in the control of micro algae. The mottled brown coloration of this Blenny is decorated with a number of small blue jewel marks. Blennies are highly territorial by nature and multiple types of Blennies should only be attempted in larger aquariums that can afford numerous hiding places. 





Indonesia: Kepe Biasa

Butterflyfish

Pebbled Butterflyfish, Chaetodon guttatissimus, is often found living on or around the reefs of the Indian and Pacific Oceans as well as the Red Sea. Members of the genus Chaetodon make gorgeous inhabitants of fish only aquariums. Soft Corals and most Invertebrates should do fine with the Butterflyfish, but it may likely decimate Stony Corals, as they are a part of its natural diet. Peaceful or non-aggressive tankmates are recommended to reduce stress on the Butterfly. When Butterflyfish are first introduced to the aquarium, they may refuse to eat. Should the fish continue this behavior for three or more days, live food should be offered (if not from the beginning). Food soaked in a garlic product will often entice the Butterfly to eat. Another useful method to encourage some Butterflyfish to eat is to place their food inside of a coral skeleton. Groupings of Butterflyfish can be introduced simultaneously in the same aquarium, making a stunning display. It is best to make sure that the fish have plenty of aquarium space each when adding a group. Live Rock and multiple places to hide also helps to reduce stress in a group introduction situation.

Cleaner Wrasse

Cleaner Wrasses, Labroides dimidiatus, are found dispersed throughout the waters of the Indo Pacific region. These quick little fish are a favorite of aquarium fish and curators alike. In the wild, the Cleaner Wrasse will establish a cleaning station where other fish wait in line for their turn to have parasites removed from their bodies. The Wrasse is receiving a meal in trade. In the home aquarium, live brine and mysid shrimp should be offered as a supplemental source of food. For the home aquarium, CleanerShrimp are highly recommended as a hardier natural Cleaner choice. (Fire Shrimp and Coral Banded Shrimp may also have some effectiveness as Cleaners.)

This fish requires special care and is traditionally difficult to keep. It is, therefore, recommended only for the advanced aquarist or for aquatic research facilities

Indonesia: Keling Ijo

Green Bird Wrasse

Green Bird Wrasse, Gomphosus varius, is a native to both the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Male Bird Wrasses have a green coloration while females are dark brown to black. This carnivore readily adapts to aquarium life when offered a wide variety of meaty foods such as Brine Shrimp. It will reach a mature size in the wild of approximately 12 inches and is generally not recommended for a reef aquarium. A sand bed and Live Rock should be provided for all Wrasses. They will bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock provides numerous small life forms that the Wrasses consider a tasty treat as well as another place to hide when they feel threatened.
