This is a typical reef on planet Snax, depicting sea scoops, branch-tongues, screwcap shells, puzzle sponges, clapping worm castles, spoke polyps, umbrella polyps, weeds, and a strange, five-headed, yellow fish that I added on a whim. I wasn't going to draw the puzzle sponges at first because in practice I could never get them to come out right. What you see now is a brand-new conception of them that I found I was able to draw. They are the two blue things with the white facets (the blue is actually the interior). The weeds of Snax are supposed to be blue-grey or blue-black because they contain both purple and green plastids in every cell. Because, I lacked the appropriate colors to make this come out quite the way I wanted, in this picture the weeds have distinct green, blue, and sometimes pink sections. That is okay. There is a lot of biodiversity in the Snax oceans. For the caption in the book, what shall I call the yellow fish?
