The skin flaps suggest Acreichthys tomentosus rather than Paramonacanthus.

The first is a featherduster worm, Sabellastarte sp.

The second is an oyster.

The third is a Paramonacanthus filefish.  I think that it is Shortsnout Filefish, Paramonacanthus curtorhynchos, though I am not certain.

Next is some sort of cnidarian, but I can’t tell from the photo.

Then the feeding tentacles of a sea cucumber, possibly a Neothyonidium species.

And finally, a coral or anemone, not one I recognize.

I suspect this is Zalasius dromiaeformis, called Shaggy Crab in some ID books.

I suspect juvenile tuskfish as well.  I have photographed juvenile Choerodon zosterophorus which have this shape, though slightly different coloration.  Which adult Choerodon sp. were in the area?
