Great pics!

The shrimp is saron marmoratus, a very beautiful and rare species of shrimp found in the Indo-Pacific, Japan, and Hawaii. Nice find!

Haaa... Ambon. I love that place, was there in feb. with the local shop Blue Rose Divers, Laha 2 is such an amazing site plus the coral dives in the southern shores are so overlooked while they are truly fantastic.
Have you heard some news about the Ambon frogfish or is it confirmed it has been swallowed by a moray eel?
Pls have a look at my Flickr photo gallery and leave a comment.

Few days ago, I heard psychedelica came back to Ambon.
I hope I can see them on next trip (Feb 2012). :)
