You have to work to see the one below: it is across to the right from the Rock Mover Wrasse...brown underneath tan coral.
Same octo-fish, but in the lower left corner.
This one was near the other one....
And this one was in its den. Note the eye above and to the left of the siphon.
This one is hard to see...you can see the little white line above its eye, in the lower right quarter of the photo.
Another hiding in its hole.
The siphon looks big, but the photo is cropped to emphasize it...and note the sand in the water.
Would you see the octopus? This was my first glance at #1.

Wrasse and Trunk Fish, sharing the spotlight
Male Trunk Fish
And the Female Trunk Fish
Really nice cone shell...occupied, so I left it. In pristine shape.
Snowflake Moray eel
Everybody, butterfly fish, Barred File Fish, Hawaiian Hog Fish, Surgeon, and damsel all got into the act of trying to eat the broken urchin.
Hawaiian Hog Fish, alone above, and with a Threadfin Butterfly below. Isn't it amazing how they can have all the same colors but look totally different?
Hawk Fish resting on top of a coral head. Good view..
Picasso Humu heading into a hidey hole.
This wrasse was hiding also.
These guys were milling about, irritating the tang near the coral head.
Juvenile Rock Mover Wrasse, pretending to be sea weed.
Leaf Fish. Pretending it wasn't visible..
Lovely parrot fish.
Millet seed butterfly. Note the black line over the eye...helps the eye be camouflaged.
No clue what these were..egg cases?
Pencil urchin feeling squashed, no doubt.
A quartet of Rock Mover wrasses trying really hard to eat something. Goat fish awaiting leftovers.
Sand can be so busy, right?
Look closely: the shell has orange antenna of a crab from inside.
Scorpion fish. A really small one. Maybe 4 inches long.
Curvy Snowflake eel
The two chromis have me interested....I'll have to look 'em up.
Have a great New Year's Eve!
