Everywhere I looked there were some sea tulips! It was like a tulip season underwater.
I saw a dusky morwong (Dactylophora nigricans). I have seen at least two dusky morwongs around here over the last 12 months. I wonder if this was one of them. Anyway, this fish was really cool, going about it's business in a very laid back manner, almost ignoring me! And a red-lipped morwong (Cheilodactylus rubrolabiatus) too.
And a school of blackspot goatfish (Parupeneus signatus) too.
And I saw a live globe fish or porcupine fish for the first time. I wrote about two dead ones before. I wonder if it was injured because for at least half an hour, it just stayed at the same spot. This fish can inflate itself till it looks like a spiky balloon.
On the walls of some reef holes, I saw sea hares (Aplysia oculifera) and sea squirts. I tried to take photos of the inside of the sea squirt's siphons but the images didn't turn out alright.
And I saw an octopus too. But it was too fast for my camera.
Overall, a really enjoyable 90 minutes or so underwater!
