It was Vernal Equinox day, but felt almost like summer♪


Being the national holiday, we had many Japanese guests today.


We had five teams today, based on the skills and interests, and we saw lots of sea life such as Mantas, Painted frogfish, Indian mackerel, etc. Painted frogfish was probably the one our guests were most uninterested – this is the most rare one though!


Mantas were busy today, and no one was hovering over the cleaning station for a long time…


Indian mackerel swim with their mouth wide open, to feed on plankton.


A Cornet fish getting cleaned by a Splitlevel hogfish.




Medusa – a kind of nudibranch. Very evil looking…


Get ready for some more hot days!
