    Hello and welcome to another evo game! This time we're developing things in the ocean, at the reefs. There's three major reefs worldwide.

    The rules are simple:
    1) evolve a creature by modifying their picture and giving a plausible reason.
    2) only a single modification/upgrade may be made per 'update'.
    3) you can choose different species to upgrade.
    4) I'll be plopping some events which you can adapt your creatures to, and decide if any updates are invalid.

    The first creature is the roo coral, a simple coral-like creature derived from the Fus.

    The growing roo corals and kafka population had attracted some other creatures, and even a plant shows up. And yes, the Kafka's mouth is on the left side, it's eating small flatworems.

    Here we have the Ojo plant, which grows on the ocean floor. It has buoyant air sacs.

    Of course, these nooks and crannies the Slizer cannot reach has enabled another smaller predator to claim its niche. The Roha is a Fus derivative, and is capable of jetting in a termendous speed to escape from a Slizer's maws. It is also flexible as hell, and could slide through most coral clumps.

    The Roha develop organs, that allow them to sense changes in electric currents around them. They use this "electric sight" to better spot prey, as well as dangers.

    When a suitable prey creature enters the range of their electro sense, the Roha quickly burst out from it's coral tunnel, wraps around the prey and jets back to the tunnel, in where it constricts the prey until it's internal organs burst, or simply bite them to death, depending on the size and danger the prey poses.

    The electric field their new organs generate is very weak, and for now, it only helps the Roha to hunt and to navigate their coral caves.

    Temporary shortage of plankton in water forces the Cystonemat to find alternative food sources. They start to eat small fishes to quench their hunger. Young Kafka, Phou and Nuros are it's prey now.

    Cystonemat can feel the vibration in the water and slowly moves it's tendrils near the victim and then when the contact is made it grabs the prey and injects it with its poison. The poison causes the victim to hallucinate so horrible horrors that it cannot move as it is Paralyzed by fear. While the fish is in the world of nightmares, the Cystonemat pulls the victim to it's mouth to be digested.

    As the smaller tentacles of the shell roha become more pronounced, the primary tentacles become shorter, but also increase in muscle mass. The short tentacles are used to ensnare the prey, while the bigger ones hold it in place long enough for the roha to bite it to death.

    Their shells also become stronger.
    They move by slowly jetting themselves where they want to go. They mostly hunt small critters with their long tentacles, while also attacking bigger ones and subduing them with their stronger tentacles.

    As the Shell Rohas started to live more and more in the open water, need for extra senses became an evolutionary pressure.
    Over time, creatures with more light sensitive skin were favored, until the Rohas eventually developed two patches of light sensing organs. They aren't proper eyes, but they can sense the direction of where the light is coming from.
    This allows the creatures to navigate better in the open seas, as they can now pinpoint where the surface is, where ass their ancestors, and cave bound cousins were and still are unable to.

    Both Roha lineages spawn thousands of larvae, that the ocean currents carry across the world. Because of this, both of these creatures can be seen in all the reefs.

    The Electric Rohas develop even stronger electric properties, as the predation by the slizers favored the individuals with the strongest electric charge, which allowed them to shock the slizers invading their homes enough for them to back off.

    Their shock is now strong enough to cause significant pain, or even temporary paralysis in larger creatures. The shock is capable of outright killing smaller creatures.
    They use it mostly defensively though, as generating such electricity consumes much energy.

    The curved shells resulted in nooks and crannies in the shell of the Curved Shell Roha provided a space in which Roo Coral spores got caught. The spores ended up forming with the shell as a base.

    The Roo coral's tendrils changed to become stickier, allowing the now parasitic coral to capture floating shreds of the animals the Roha killed. The Roha in turn gained another layer of protection to its shell, making it even harder to penetrate.

    Alrighty then, here is the new version of shell rohas.
    Due to interbreeding with the different roha populations, eventually, a hybrid breed that carried both of the advantageous qualities of it's parents emerged.

    This new generation of rohas has the curved shell, better eyesight and the symbiotic relationship between the roo coral. This new creature quickly became dominant over it's ancestors, who were mostly absorbed to this new population of superior rohas. There are still remnants of both of the original sub-breeds in remote reefs, where the genetic lineage of the new roha hasn't jet reached.

    With the some Ojo plants being difficult to eat, the local Bearded Phous begin to rely more on small sealife for their diet.

    This results in an offshoot of the Phou, which develops more pronounced frontal limbs with bony coverings for stunning small prey, more muscular hind limbs for rapidly launching itself from the ground, and more filaments for sensing movements.

    God, I love all these diversifications. Reefs, as it should be!

    Anyways, I think it's time for an event.
    A weather pattern change has caused the water's temperature to rise. The different places get different effects... on the East continent reefs this meant an increase of planktons rising to the surface from the deep sea, on the Central continent reefs this caused an algae bloom, while on the South continent reefs a new kind of plankton evolved. These bioluminescent planktons are lightly poisonous, and cause a bit of sickness in small animals, although the Roo coral eats it up just fine.

    The electric sense of the swimming rohas has improved. They have developed additional electric organs along their sides, that produce a large passive and weak elecrtic field that allows the roha to "see" any creatures within this field.

    By chance in the past some Ojo plants came to rest upon a Roo coral and grew there. Now they have evolved for their sprouts to grow longer roots before separating and drifting a little higher above the sea floor to make them much more likely to be caught on a Roo coral than just a rock or the sea floor. This reduces grazing on the plant as the coral eats many of the animals that would eat the Ojo.

    Oooh, since they are becoming so heavily shelled, perhaps their four larger tentacles become wider and thicker towards the end to help propel them better. More leaf shapped basically. This also allows them to 'walk' along the bottom should they need to, and make better use of their smaller tentacles for feeding.

    My thought behind the colours was that the reddish and brown tones would blend in among the roo corral and the stones when taking cover there. And among the corral and the bottom they seem to have few natural predators, one may be the Electric Roha, which doesn't have any sight.

    Out in open water the Whale Kefka eats only smaller things from what I've seen, and for that matter I haven't seen any Kefkas with sight. This leaves the Slizer as its lone natural predator which can be escaped by diving to the bottom combined with having a tough shell as secondary defense.

    If you then take in account finding mates, it may be an acceptable outcome. Besides, I was just trying to get some more colour in among the species, since someone had complained about that issue.

    Some develop heavier armor over their primary tentacles, which allow them to protect their vulnerable flesh much better. The added weight makes them less agile however, and thus they eventually shrink in size.

    The other variant becomes larger, and heavier, as the skin on their legs becomes even thicker. They begin to move on the seabed, and feed on all the burrowing creatures living in the mud. Their primary tentacles gain muscle mass that allow them to walk on the sea floor much easier, while their secondary tentacles also strengthen. They hunt by lashing out their secondary tentacles at critters swimming too close, and also by burrowing them through the soil and snatching anything hiding there.

    With the increase in larger prey, especially the Whale Kafka, some Slizers have resumed actively hunting for food rather than lurking on the reef. The Jet Sliver has developed additional water sacs under its upper fins to increase its speed.

    22 KB
    Some Bearded Phou could not adapt to the changes within the Ojo plants. As such, they migrated elsewhere in search of places in search of food.

    One particular breed of Phou developed after a population of Beareded Phou chanced upon the massive and ambulatory Luscanemat and Cystonemats forests. Dubbed the "Ribbon Phou" due to the red stripe across their bodies, they nest mostly in the underside of the coral forest and nibble at the roots of the plants that grow there. However, these roots lack many essential nutrients that these Phou need. Thus, most of their diet comes from scavenging the miscellaneous bits of animal matter that are left over by the carnivorous plants.

    Ribbon Phou create their nests by collecting various bits of dirt and adding on to the dirt clump on the bottom of the Luscanemats. These types of Phou have also developed more sensory filaments, which help them avoid being eaten by Cystonemats as they scavenge dangerously close to the Cystonemats' maws. However, they are weak swimmers, and regularly eaten by predators who can see them rather easily against the green masses of the Luscanemat forest. In addition, the Ribbon Phou's sensory filaments do not always prevent them from being eaten by Cystonemats. Thus, Ribbon Phou multiply at a rapid rate.

    Their consumtion of the poisonous algae has not only increased their tolerance for the poison, but the snakephou has started producing venom of its own, leading to the striped snakephou who display its venom through its colourful skin.
