In Topic: Behavior question on remora

Hi Dave

Seen this a few times but not in the Caribbean. Most recently in Lembeh attached to a bluespotted ray and in Anilao attached to a fringelip mullet. Neither were very happy!

No. 2 is a goby - Valenciennea helsdingenii.

No. 5 is a juvenile razor fish I think. Possibly a Peacock by the long first dorsal - Iniistius pavo

The last one is a juvenile Unicornfish - Naso sp. Not sure which species

In Topic: 6 More from Lembeh

With 1 & 4 I have been down this route before. Seen this shadowing behaviour quite regularly in Lembeh and have been advised the "shadower" is either Carangoides coeruleopinnatus or C. armatus. Personally, I think the latter. They always in my experience follow various types of Puffer.

The last one is a blenny - Petroscirtes mitratus

No. 2 is some form of Conger - genus Ariosoma maybe

In Topic: which brand(s) for reliable clamps

I was in your position and changed mine for Nauticam clamps. Very pleased with them after a year. I also have some I-DAS stuff (not clamps). Their kit is quite cheap but not as well finished. After every trip I have to pickle all the I-Das gear in vinegar to get the white crud off.

In Topic: Canon 5dS and 5DR

Are there any further reports and experiences of using the Canon 5DS and/or the 5DSR underwater please? I am planning some changes to my gear and this is a possibility but there is a dearth of information about its performance underwater.
