Another Good Vis Day @ Pulau Hantu.....

Same as last month dive, I enjoyed another good visibility dive at Pulau Hantu with The Hantu Bloggers on Sunday! It was about 5m and we did two dives at the South Jetty!

The vis actually looked better than the pic shows. :p

Came across quite a number of Cushion Stars!

Lots of little Brittle Stars on Sea Fans!

Found a Basket Star on a Sea Fan too!

Haha.....luckily I spotted this well camouflaged Scorpionfish before I put my fingers on the substrate for support.*Phew*

Found the Winged Pipefish on the usual pillar.

Found a couple of Sea Pens on the seabed.

Allied Cowries are still around to be seen.

Have been seeing these kind of Flatworms on such Ascidians.

Found this small Anemone. Its body column has spotted pattern. Hmmmm.....wonder if it is an Alicia sp.?

The Dermatobranchus nudibranch (Dermatobranchus sp.) are in season.

The same goes to the Snakey Bornella nudibranch (Bornella anguilla). CT said she saw at least 10 of them!

A Gymnodoris nudibranch (Gymnodoris sp.).

A few Eyed Phyllid nudibranch (Phyllidia ocellata) were seen.

A Cuthona Nudibranch (Cuthona sibogae).

A Red-lined Flabellina nudibranch (Flabellina rubrolineata).

The unknown Doto nudibranch (Doto sp.) on a Hydroid.

It has been some times that I see the "Godzilla" at Pulau Hantu! It's the Slender Ceratosoma nudibranch (Ceratosoma gracillimum)!

Looks like a Chinese Chromodoris nudibranch (Chromodoris sinensis).

Lastly, we saw two kinds of Glossodoris nudibranch. Top: a Black-margined nudibranch (Glossodoris atromarginata) and bottom: a Girdled Glossodoris nudibranch (Glossodoris cincta).
