These look to me like they may have been shot (if using a slr) around f8. I would stop down to a smaller aperture to get a better depth of field. JMHO

Nice subjects!

Have you tried cropping off the bottom of the second image to give a 3x4 format, losing the boring bit and putting the scorpion fish on the left to right diagonal?

The third image looks over-processed on my screen.

They all look just a little 'soft' to me.
You need to concentrate the point of focus on the eyes of the fish and the rhinopores of the nudibranchs...

OK, I give up. What is #1?
Nice shots. I like #2, but the eyes seem a tad out?

Between this and your other image improvement post - you are very good at finding interesting subject matter !
I think the colours are slightly off in the 3rd and 4th shots, I agree with GHP regarding the 2nd one - the eye's in focus would have made it even better.
I think the first one could be brought up a little in the processing - perhaps something like :
