    Yes I know, they will be moved when they get bigger.

    It is a Pearly Butterflyfish (Chevron)

    Yes local, got him today. Was walking back to the car and was getting hot so I jumped into a rock pool. So while I was cooling down and in the pool I though I would have a look around, dived to the bottom about 1.5 2m and their he was just sitting on a ledge so I got out and got my net the rest is history.

    Also saw my first local Coachman and a Limespot BF.
