Urchin Clingfish (Diademichthys Lineatus)

Urchin Clingfish (Diademichthys Lineatus) are usually quite difficult to photograph due to their small size and constant movement.

The subject in this photo created a very rare opportunity as it was sitting stationary on a small rock, allowing for some nice close-up shots.

Blueback Damsel (Pomacentrus Simsiang)

This photo shows the relative size of the individual compared to the Yellowtail Tubelip Wrasse (Diproctacanthus Santhurus). This suggests it is an adult of some species and so far, the Blueback Damselfish (Pomacentrus Simsiang) has been the most likely match.
