Back To This Part Of Changi Shore.....
The first thing we saw are the colourful and beautiful Sea Fans (okay, plus the nasty looking Stinging Hydroids :op)!
And they seen to be doing pretty well!
A little Hermit Crab perched on a Sea Fan.
Was checking the Stinging Hydroid for commensals and found this thingy on it. Could this be a Lomanotus sp. nudibranch that can be found on such Hydroid? This is the best pic I have as the Hydroid was swaying about and of course, I would not want to touch and hold the Hydroid to keep it still! :op
Found a pair of these nudibranch (possible Cratena sp.)!
and later on branches of a Candy Hydroid, spotted another pair!
Lots of this Flatworm around.
A few Fanworm can be seen in the water.
Came across two of these Spider Crab.
A mama Stone/Thunder Crab hiding in a crevice.
While this little Filefish was hiding among the purple sponges.
The only Sea Urchin that I saw today.
Plenty of Crown/Rock Sea Star can be seen. One with six arms and some as small as my fingers.
The other "Star" sightings are this Spiny Sea Star.....
and this Featherstar/Crinoid.
Saw only one Synaptid Sea Cucumber.
Lastly, a buried Sea Cucumber with its feeding tentacles out grabbing tiny food in the water.
