Large fan corals spread out to filter nutrients from the current.
Another Sharptail Eel (Myrichthis breviceps) at Jalousie.
A large group of Yellow-edge Chromis (Chromis multilineata) at Jalousie.
Another Spotted Moray (Gymnothorax Moringa) at Grand Kye.
Barred Hamlet (Hypoplectra puella) at Grand Kye.
Well-camouflaged Spotted Scorpionfish (Scorpaena plumieri).
A brightly-coloured feather star nestles next to a luminous blue sponge at Grand Kye, while a shrimp lurks around the corner to the left. The white cotton-thread-like creature at the bottom left is some sort of Gorgonian, common all over the area.
Better visibility at Grand Kye enabled us to spread out a bit while hovering over the corals and sponges.
A couple of shrimps hide next to a sea urchin.
Corals and sponges of all shapes.
