  1. I would classify them as intertidal algae and search for that. One might be Padina pavonica or close (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Padina_pavonica) The other sure looks like some type of Red Algae (Amphiroa), but there are so many varieties... Good luck
  2. #5/#7 is definitely a pipefish. Maybe Rough-ridge Pipefish (Cosmocampus banneri) ?? or Corythoichthys benedetto Not a lot of exemplars for the rarer pipefish. http://fishesofaustralia.net.au/home/species/3175
  3. One of my Red Sea ID books has Amphiprion sebae as occurring in the Red Sea. It specifically describes: "The second white bar extending along the top of the second dorsal fin, tail rounded." Sounds/looks like a possible match.
  4. Some possibilities: Caloria indica Godiva rachelae
  5. FOR SALE: Olympus TG-4 & PT-056 Housing Here's exactly what's included: Olympus TG-4 with latest firmware.

TG-4 - used, good condition. The shutter count on this camera is 4,071. Everything works. The waterproofness of the camera is intact (down to the rated 50ft.). Functionally, the camera has no issues. Cosmetically, I would rate it about 5/10. The lens has no scratches, but the rear LCD has several small ones. Some of the paint on the lettering has worn off. This camera has been used in pools, fresh water diving, and salt water diving. The biggest cosmetic issue for me is some salt water buildup around the screws surrounding the lens (see pic). I have always rinsed the camera after use, but when I first started using it, I didn't realize that you should remove the ring surrounding the lens while rinsing as well. If you rinse without doing this, salt water can remain inside this ring and cause minor corrosion on the screws.I have been using it in its current state for several years, so it's not a big deal. I replaced the standard lens ring cover with the CLA-T01. If you use the camera by itself underwater, leave the CLA-T01 on, then remove it when rinsing. If you use the camera in the housing, just remove the CLA-T01 (and add a POSR-053 if you have one) Batteries: All 3 batteries hold a charge, but I would not trust them for more than 1 dive (maybe 150 shots with flash on low power). PT-056 - used, very good condition. I doubt this has seen more than 20 ocean dives. There are no issues that I'm aware of. Some very minor cosmetic blemishes, but that's it. Due to the cosmetic issues of the TG-4, I'm going to price this low at $350 US. I will include PayPal fees and USPS shipping in that price. I would prefer to ship using USPS, but will consider international or other carriers at buyer's expense. A few more pics
  6. Opistognathus solorensis? (Solor Jawfish) There are yellow and non-yellow variations. This looks like the non-yellow variation.
  7. These look more like nudibranch egg ribbons to me Like these
  8. If you have any luck tracking them down, let me know. I'd be willing to trade for the ball mounts. I have 2 of the YS mounts that are unused. I previously used the YS mounts, but I found that the screw part was always subject to a lot of buildup (even after rinsing), so I prefer the direct ball mounts.
  9. So close, but not quite there. Those are more like Sea & Sea 22119 (https://www.bluewaterphotostore.com/sea-sea-ball-mount-22119). Those have a completely flat bottom, whereas the piece that attaches to the strobe directly and replaces the normal YS adapter has a raised ridge to fit into an indentation. But thanks - I'll scour Ebay some more.
  10. Anyone know where I can pickup a couple Sea & Sea Ball Mount Strobe Adaptors? (their spelling, not mine) To be clear exactly what I'm talking about, here's an image from the manual and one installed. For the life of me, I can't find a place to buy this. Perhaps the search words are too generic - Sea, Ball, Mount... Thanks!
