From Hantu on 180206

"Grouper" is Ephinephalus boenack, sometimes called the "Indian" grouper - no idea why.

From Hantu on 190206

"Is it nudi eggs?" is a flatworm

"Corals" (first one) is Galaxea fasicularis, or Galaxy coral

"Amazing corals" and "Another view", if they are the same colony, are Pectina spp. Sometimes also called "cabbage" corals

"Corals" (2nd one) is Echinopora spp. Not sure of common name.

"Nice and plenty ..." is Pleurogyra spp.

Cheers, Jeff

hehe.. mine dunno got bah geh one or not ... ;p

anyway, for photography comments, you might want to avoid shooting the critters from butt view. side or headfront is usually nicer, though you might get some interesting butt profile sometimes ;)

Yup, tying to get frontal shots too, but sometimes no time to get into a better position, Training main priority for the trip. :p

The gymnodoris alba seems to be very similar to gymnodoris rubropapulosa.

Heya,

The "Amazing corals" and "Another view" looks more like Pavona sp. than Pectinia sp. actually...
