When female wrasse spawn eggs, many male wrasse chase her.
The situation is so dynamic.

I guess they were gathering at there for spawning behavior.

We can see this scene in this term every year.

This pics is the most impressive thing for me today.

It is eggs of Bob squid.

At night, some nudi become active.
So, it is easier to find them.

We can see so many nudibranchs for two days!!!!

We could see many kinds of Nudibranchs.
Now, the number of Tambja Nudi is increasing.

The size is so small!!
It is better to use camera to see this nudibranchs.

And there also are two frog fish in a bay side dive area.


Can you find frog fish in this pic??
The frog fish is good at hiding. So, I have to search where the frog fish are.

I had good time for two days.

After rainy day, we can sometimes see this situation.

Around surface is filled with fresh water and bottom side is filled with sea water.
When this situation is happened, we can see this scene which looks like aurora.

Today, we can also see so many silver striped round herrings.

When they go through on us, it becomes dark underwater.
It is so dynamic !!!!

The water temperature become 23 degree, so some damsel start protecting their eggs.

Other fishes start ecological behavior soon, I guess.
I’m looking forward to seeing this behavior!!!

Also, we can still see many sea slug.

If you like sea slug, here is the best place for searching sea slug I guess.
