We Are Cute?

Sometime we didn't realize they are so cute even we always see them. Maybe this is the point make us feel that they are so common. We just ignore them sometime. Mr. Clown Triggerfish and Mr. Long Nose Hawkfish please forgive me..! hehehehe.

Actually, we realize that different diver love different stuff. Western diver love big stuff more. Beside, most of the Japanese love macro stuff. Hahaha....To be a very good dive master is not that easy as u imagine. We need to take care what they want? What they need? We will do our best.....!


clown triggerfish (Balistoides conspicillum)

This fish can reach up to about 50 cm (20 in) in length. It has strong jaws which can be used to crush and eat sea urchins, crustaceans and hard-shelled mollusks.

This fish has unique coloration. The ventral surface has large, white spots on a dark background, and its dorsal surface has black spots on yellow. There is a vertical, white (slightly yellow) stripe on the caudal fin. The brightly painted yellow mouth may be used to deter potential predators.This fish has a form of camouflage that is, or is similar to, countershading. From below, the white spots look like the surface of the water above it. From above, the fish will blend in more with the coral reef environment.

Long Nose Hawkfish (Oxycirrhites typus)

The Longnose Hawkfish is one of the most popular of the hawkfish. They are a very interesting fish to watch and have very intricate and colorful markings. They have tufts (typical of hawkfish) on the dorsal fin rays and the nostrils, and there coloration is to mimic the Gorgonian Color that they live in. They do this almost perfectly.
