Great weather, but the south wind was strong!

So we avoided the area with the strong wind, and cruised up to the Sakieda area.



Visibility was not too good, but the number of Indian perch in the arches was growing 🙂


There was plenty of sunlight around the shallow areas of the arches.


We also enjoyed watching small creatures.

Redeye gobies are very common around here, but you need to bring a torch to see their red eyes.


A juvenile Harlequin sweetlips.

It moves restlessly and hard to take a good shot, but very cute 🙂


There are lots of Nimos around Oganzaki North.


There are different kinds of Anemonefish.

Which one do you like the best?
