False Clownfish Anemone fish
White Tipped Reef Shark
Reef Scallop - The red-orange dots are it's eyes!
Unlike clams, scallops can swim and they can rest in unlikely places,
like in the middle of this coral.
Christmas Tree Worm
Sweetlips - maybe Silver or Giant species
Yours truly trying to get a shot of the Potato Cod, which is a large
Grouper and fellow divers
Jessica behind a giant clam
This Nudibranch had a very very small shrimp or something on it, perhaps
Parrot fish at night
Sharks - mostly White Tip Reef Sharks
Remora or Sharksucker. These were attached to the sharks and would
sometimes try to attach to us.
Double-saddle Butterflyfish, a Latticed Butterflyfish and a pair of
Red Brittle Starfish on White Coral with Blue Christmas Tree worm
Green Urn Sea Squirts
Hiding, but curious
Damselfish checking me out
Two beautiful Pacific Sailfin Tang. Check out below what

Pacific Sailfin Tang.. Awesome!
Each clam had a different pattern.
A Humpnose Unicornfish followed by Trevally
Sea Cucumber and Titan Triggerfish

Morrison's Dragonet (Synchiropus morrisoni)
Longnose Butterflyfish (Forcipiger longirostris)
Brightly colored Mushroom or Razor Coral
Not sure if the small guy is about to clean the bigger Pufferfish or serve as
I do think the bigger one might be an algae eater though.
Sable Squirrelfish ..about 18 inches long
Threadfin Butterflyfish (Chaetodon auriga)
Coming up to check out where the boat is.
Sea Pearls - These are single cell Green Algae that are up to 2 inches
across. I have seen them in Bonaire as well. They are probably the
largest single cell creatures around. Coated with lavender crust algae.
This Potato Cod was hanging out at the shark dive
Getting back on the boat.. the way all these dives end. Hopefully.
Australian flag and gull
