WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS
DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU
SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR URGENT
What you are seeing here is not just one fish, but two different organisms! The fish (a cardinal fish, I believe) has just attempted to eat an ostracod (a small crustacean). When threatened, the ostracod produces the chemicals luciferin and luciferase, which emit a light when they’re mixed. This process is called bioluminescence.
So, why does this make the cardinal fish spit out the ostracod? Well, both the cardinal fish and the ostracod dwell deep in the ocean, where very little light from the sun reaches. Through bioluminescence, the ostracod is essentially producing a bright “warning light” to BIGGER predators that the cardinal fish is nearby. So now, the predator cardinal fish could become easy prey for something else! To save its scales, the cardinal fish spits out the bright ostracod and swims away, back into safe, inky blackness.
You can kind of see the tiny ostracod fall down the side of the aquarium wall in the gif above, while the bioluminescence chemicals disperse in the water.
there are but if the marketing team is making it a fucking nightmare for cosplayers to sell their used hand made items that aren’t offered in the what pumpkin store that’s enough of a reason for me to stop wanting to invest time/money into homestuck.
I’ve had to deal with andrew hussie’s stupid awful gf harassing me for literally YEARS NOW. She kept trying to shut down my etsy for selling STRIPED SCARVES which is offered in ANY TWO COLORS but because homestuck was popular at the time I got a lot of requests for that. She also straight up insulted one of the homestuck cosplay groups me and my friends broke our backs getting together on her twitter and i’m just completely fucking sick of being insulted and treated like shit by the people who should be grateful for their fanbase. Homestuck wouldn’t be shit without the fans creating all this incredible fancontent and promoting the series, and this kind of behavior just alienates fans further.
wasn’t even gone for a whole month but yeah
every song is a ship song if you’re in too deep
