img_3855Mangrove ecosystem have many interaction between live organism and environment. We observe the organisms in mangrove ecosystems to know what kind of interactions. The mangroves vegetation are complex because of mixing zone from land, freshwater, and saltwater. Fish, mangrove, and others biota almost interact one each others, looking for the mangrove roots in the channel we founded that many larvae fish in different species are schooling in that habitats.

Moreover near from the chenier about 2m depth and 500 m from the coastal of mangrove we have to found jellyfish who followed by juvenile fish and attached by little crustacean. The color of fish and jelly fish is almost likely orange and the crustaceans body its clear. In addition as we know that jellyfish in the sea have a toxic but a little juvenile fish can swim and like playing around in this tentacles.

Fungi of mangrove branch also caught in observation the color is brown and have jelly texture and have a convex body shape patched in branch.
