Clade: Porifera (sponges)
Depth: -2 to –35 m.
Distribution : Red Sea
Environment : protected reef slopes, lagoons
Climate : warm waters
The Colony Siphon Sponge belongs to the clade of sponges (porifera) which already for 500 million years exist on earth. These sessile (caked-on) animals are riddled with a duct system, which makes the closely related Euspongia to be used as a bath sponge. The animals can circulate up to twentyfold of the own body weight of water on one day and have thereby an important
function as water filters in the ecological system of the reef.
