Finally we are getting clearer water for a change, this has taken a long time to comeback and it showed with much photosynthetic marine life bleaching, we donít take pics of that.

Definitely not much in any way was wanted by use this time, it was more that we were keen to get out there and enjoy the oceans recent bent in East Auzy current that has brought in blue water, while it was so good.

A couple of us getting ready to get in after being dropped off at this reef while others went of fishing.

They are a pain when they do that, just get the butt of the net slowly behind them and coax them out a little and move slow, the red lines need to trust or thatís it, they wonít let you near them.

They always have an eel and some times sea urchins for protection, the eel you may not see until there is blood from you,ouch!

I find these days if I take a couple of pics for that time with out attack to them, it seems to get them trusting you.

They are such a vulnerable marine creature in the ocean and in the aquarium especially, they take a little time to make sure you are not a predator to them in the ocean, because nearly everything is a predator to them, in the aquarium as well.

As you know in the aquarium once they feel safe, they jump on your fingers and start cleaning.

If they are not happy and not well fed in the aquarium, they will kill their partner and eat it as it sheds as well.

I have lost a few that way, once in this system it has happened already!

cheers
