Photo Week 2006 Update - 3rd and 4th day

The diving schedule were as usual for Day 3 and Day 4, with 2 boat dives and 1 boat dive in the afternoon. And of course, there are people who will skip one of the boat dive to do a self-dive in either Paradise 1 or Paradise 2. They just love Paradise 1 and Paradise 2, they love the snake eel, ornate ghostpipefish, fingered dragonet, robust ghostpipe fish, and the most exciting addition to Paradise now is the baby fingered dragonet, measuring less than 1cm in length, absolutely gorgeous!!!
