The sea condition is still rough….
But we can dive in a whole day.

I was surprised that the water temperature is getting lower.
It is 20 degree today(^^;)

Today’s guest likes to see tiny underwater creatures.
So, I show them tiny nudibranchs so much.

Can you find the nudibranch in this picture ??
The size is about 0.5mm.
When I can find underwater creatures like this size, I’m so happy!!!

Recently, the number of Striped butterfly fish is increasing.

The color is so beautiful(^^)

Some Cardinalfish protect their eggs in their mouth.
It is difficult to observe with you eyes. I recommend you to use compact camera.

The water temperature changes from day to day, which makes it hard for the fish.

I hope the water temperature is warmer than today.
See you then(^^)/

It was sunny at the this morning, but it became rainy afternoon…
The sea was so calm. So we were able to dive without stress today.

Now, it is the best season to observing ecological behavior.

Various of cardinalfish has their eggs in a mouth to protect now.
They usually close a mouth.
If you want to take a picture of these fishes, you have to wait for the fish to open its mouth.

We could also see baby Southern boxfish today.
It is first time for me to see in this season.

It is so cute!!!! It looks like dice, doesn’t it??

At last dive, we could see rare shrimp.

The body is clear. So it is hard to see this shrimp with eyes.
But, it is lucky when you can see this.

Also, Now is the best season to observe the clownfish eggs hatching.

Clownfish eggs hatching start at night. So we often go to night dive to see this behavior.
If you want to do night diving, please feel free to let us know!!

See you then(^^)/
