First Pulau Hantu Dive For Year 2009.....

Had my first Hantu dive for this year with The Hantu Bloggers today. However, did not see any new stuffs but nonetheless is happy that the usual ones are still there.

First up, the Tiger tail Seahorse. Especially happy to see the ones at North Jetty again after missing them out in my previous 2 dives there.


There were also some beautiful Flatworms



and of course, nudibranch!




(From top-down,L-R) : The Phyllidia sp., the Red-papulose Gymnodoris nudibranch (Gymnodoris rubropapulosa), the Ceratosoma nudibranch that we affectionately called "The Godzilla" (Ceratosoma gracillimum), the pretty Reliable Chromodoris nudibranch (Chromodoris fidelis) and the tiny Dermatobranchus sp.

Was trying hard to look for the Tritonia nudibranch (Tritonia bollandi) on the Sea Fans but only managed to see the Allied Coweries.


And while at the shallow part of the reef, I spotted some very tiny creatures (the red thingy in the pic) moving about on the silt covered rock surface.


Wonder what are these? Some kind of Crustacean? Hmmm....anyone?

Talking about Crustancean, there's also this big prawn sighted.


Here's a video of it swimming about;
