Another view of Stetson Bank. Intermingled in between the coral colonies are the many sponges found at Stetson Bank, along with the fire coral (Millepora alcicornis). Sponges seen here include black-ball sponge (Ircinia strobilina), a type of red encrusting sponge, and chicken liver sponge (Chondrilla nucula), to name a few. (photo: Frank and Joyce Burek)
