These were to late arvo walks at two different areas and as usual both provided are great time.

One of the spots had a couple of commercial collectors we know and had a yak with The one that used to be a club member, until him, his dad and older brother went into commercial collecting.

They are doing really well with corals I here and specialise in rare fish, good on them

They were just there for a few million peps,but a tiny red ocy was found so we gave it to them, they would get some cash for it to go to some ones home, none of us wanted any more.

These pics represent the two days afternoon trips.

This was the welcoming committee or maybe it was just a cuddle wanted.

A shy stromb shell fish.

It was put back exactly where it came from.

A not so common xenia here found in three massive colonies, thatís a good sign of health for the area.

This area was always bare, for well over 20 plus years of coming here and now the sea grass is powering at this spot, that was quick, there are runners all around the egdes, more good health.

A top coralline to keep,if you can have a bristle tooth to keep it free of other algae forms.

Now this is not worth collecting, a toxic fungus I am told by Luke.

Lots of cyphastrea serailia around.

Hey G

In regards to the cat shark egg and I know it's probably too late now, but for futur reference, we used to hatch the cat shark eggs at work....The only way we could get them to hatch was have them suspended using fishing line about mid water.....I'm not sure why this worked as they are usually attached to something or on the bottom, but it did.

you are quite right deeg,the shark attaches the egg to whip coral,mangrove roots, robust algae or similar.
