    Firstly I must apologise for the shoddy camera work need to learn better skills with my gopro, so they not nearly as good as @Lord_Blackadder videos

    So first up was actually a man made pool amongst the rocks. Amazing SPS growing on the walls and some huge LPS colonies



    A blue sponge growing on the one wall



    Then in there was this mystery fish



    And the pool was filled with these guys




    Then found these guys at another location in the rock pools. Can you spot the cleaner?




    Just got 1 more video to edit and upload, but ill leave that one till tomorrow

    Not a cutribbon. Spottail coris, Coris caudimacula. Our second most common wrasse.

    Abudefduf notatus in the last vid.

    As a tip, keep your arm as stiff as possible and only make very slow movements. If you can grab onto something while filming even better.
