Sargassimfish/Sargassum Frogfish (Histrio histrio) - Atmosphere Resorts House Reef, Dauin, Philippines
One of our boat crew found this little guy nearly washed up on shore while unloading tanks, so they put it in a container with a clump of sargassum and brought it to me to identify it. i grabbed my camera and swam it out to deeper water, releasing it near some sargassum that was heading off in the strong current towards Apo Island.

Saddleback Anemonefish (Amphiprion polymnus) - Dauin, Philippines
the next generation…so many eyeballs!
Nudibranch (Halgerda sp.) - Dauin, Philippines
I totally saw this species mid boom-boom the other day. Let’s hear it for simultaneous hermaphratism!
Bluespotted Stingray (Neotrygon kuhlii) - Lembeh, Indonesia
Sorry I haven’t been posting much - been crazy busy with our new volunteers with Zoox. The plus side is we’re in Malapascua and my bedroom view looks like this. The down side is I chose sleep over sharks this morning and I’m a little uncertain as to who I am having made that decision.
Ornate Ghost Pipefish (Solenostomus paradoxus) - Dauin, Philippines
P.S. Get your own here.
Ok folks, in the interest of time management (and my sanity) we have a new rule. If you can google the answer to your question, I’m not gonna answer it. Like I’ve said before, I’m probably going to have to google it myself anyway.
Also, I still enjoy using google as a verb.
