Be prepared to shoot very small creatures. I took this shot several years ago of the DM pointing out a comb jelly: https://www.salmonog...tes/i-gsmF4NM/A
You will need a good focusing light - the brighter the better! I bring along a narrow beam light as well to search for incoming things. Make sure you have a tether for your camera system.
I have a lot of examples of inverts in the same gallery as the link above. As well, there can be larval fishes - I have shots of them in this gallery: https://www.salmonog...Fish-Portraits/
While not transparent like the jellies, some can move rather fast make focusing challenging as well.
