First Visit To Sentosa-Serapong Reef.....

My first time visiting this reef at Sentosa last Monday. We are grateful to Shao Wei, Xi Lin, Sheila and Sylvester for arranging this special trip and sharing the shore with us!

Some parts of the reef are colourful!

There are lots of soft corals as well as some good hard corals coverage that I have seen so far for a shore so near to mainland. Like this big patch of Staghorn coral!

There are also other hard corals:

Among a branching coral, Mama Cuttlefish had deposited some of her eggs!

A Spider Conch!

Came across a couple of Octupus. Here's one,

Can you see it?

Red Crinoid/Featherstar is aplenty on this shore!

Two poisonous crabs! A Brown Egg Crab (Top) and a Mosaic Crab (Bottom)!
