Early February saw some really really really green water on our dive sites. This algae bloom is seasonal I believe and it came in with some strong NE winds. The lagoon and even some of our favourite reefs had a few meters of visiblity.
The silver lining was in the macro life that sprung up to feast on the algae. The vis cleared in a week but there was plenty of things to hunt for. The slug above is new to me, and Chris Palmer took some nice shots of a pink coloured nudi- there were literally thousands of them. The nudi below was posing really well with its eggs (yellow looking bubbles). It’s often difficult to get underneath nudibranchs so as to get a nice background.
2 weeks…. later and they were all gone 😦
