Moustached or Titan Triggerfish (Balistoides viridescens) are quite large, and can give you a nasty nip. This one
seems more interested in getting a clean from cleanerfish at Panettone Kandu.
Another Titan Triggerfish at Hukuru Elhi Faru.
A particularly dark-coloured Lionfish (Pterois volitans) at Panettone Kandu.
A more normal brown coloured Lionfish at Panettone Manta Point.
A large school of Sawtooth Barracuda (Sphyraena putnamiae) in the distance at Thudufushi Thila.
Porcupinefish (Diodon histrix) at Panettone Manta Point.
This seems to be a juvenile Blackside or Freckled Hawkfish (Paracirrhites forsteri) at Panettone Manta Point - they are highly variable in colour.
I think this is a Two-Lined Monocle Bream or Bridled Monocle Bream (Scolopsis bilineata) at Panettone Manta Point.
A well-camouflaged Tasseled Scorpionfish (Scorpaenopsis oxycephala) at Panettone Manta Point. His round black eye is towards the right, and his tail is at the left.
A Yellow-margined Moray (Gymnothorax flavimarginatus) hiding in a hole until night-time at Panettone Manta Point.
And nearby is a Black-cheeked or Masked Moray (Gymnothorax breedeni) sharing its hole with a shrimp. Careful - they bite!
While this much bigger, but more docile, Giant Moray (Gymnothorax javanicus) is at Hukuru Elhi Faru.
