    16 to 27m except for the slug and the sps colony. I'm using a Sea & Sea DX750 with housing and a YG15(I think) strobe

    My pleasure. Some info on the dive site. Max depth 27m. The actual site is an artificial reef created in 1990 (If I have my dates right) It is two old cement / concrete blocks that were blown apart by the Ocean research institute to create a reef.

    The blocks were used during wartime to stop submarines from entering the harbor. I have a few other pics that I will upload during the week, but these where the best ones.
