27th August 2006 : Pulau Hantu

Back to Pulau Hantu once again after 2 months break. The vis was okay. A minor accident happened to an animal due to my carelessness. So, here's what I have seen.

A nudibranch (white with yellow and brown edge and purple rhrinophores and gills) spotted by HP. And the other was the usual Blue Dragon nudibranch.

The seabed was littered with baby Icon Sea Stars.

Lots of corals with their polyps out.

Here's the poor animal that I have dislodged with its commensal shrimps. I am so SORRY! Fortunately, it was safely brought back to its original place.

Here's a big purple sponge.

A Ocellate Pipefish.

One of the many crinoids seen at Hantu.

30th July 2006 : Sudong Wreck

Second time to this wreck with the Localdivers. The vis was about 1m but still a good dive. Lots of Sea Fans, Sea Whips and Crinoids. Saw a phyllidia sp and Icon Seastars. Other stuffs include;

A Nudibranch (glossodoris atromarginata) and A Tigertail Seahorse.
