What a day,very nice conditions,a little cool in the water,but pretty good over all.
We got to the boat ramp with Dannys boat at around 9.15 am and the three of us this time were in the water by around 10.00 am and we had a ball.
The vis was at the start,about 3 metres and by the time the tide was all the way in it would have been a good 8 metres vis and considering the deepest spot was around 8 metres,that's not bad at all for a estuary dive.

We were in the water for around 4 hours and saw lots of clown fish,mainly!

These are some of the fish and inverts caught on the day.

Lots of anemone shrimp see on the day.


One of the few times we bothered getting any of the millions of banded shrimp we see.


One this trip there were between 25 and 30 akyndinos in a small area in 3 to 7 feet of water.


some local tangs were asked for by a clubbie or two.


These are for nick.







what this is i have no idea????



When we arrived


One of the more friendly eels on the day.


A monocle bream we caught.


A nice medium sized saddle back butterfly caught,i wanted to leave it but Danny has always wanted one,it eats like a pig in his tank.


There is a clown in there,just to cosy in there to come out.


Three clowns in this one.


A purple radi with resident clown.


Dinner sized cod.


A couple of the divers feeding the fish.

You should do one,they are far easier than you think.

It's just what is advised to use with in the marine aquarium hobby nowadays is not the best for people that do not understand the marine mechanisms.

For a beginner,you should use low tech and make it all your self.

What i wouldn't give to be able to take a boat out and catch some tankmates!
This will possibly upset you,but we can in most spots just drive to it in the car ,put on the gear and just walk in to see most acropora corals,anemones and most fish,in 1 to 10 feet of water.

That trip was in mainly 3 to 15 feet of water,the anemones were in 3 to 6 feet of water with clowns in them.
