I had to remove two still photos from my original video at the request of Craig O'neill,
I'm sorry if anyone was offended by them.

Sea moths, flying gurnards, blennies and gobies. Part 8 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine creatures of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia.

This video features some of the unusual fish found in the Lembeh Strait. First we encounter a pair of short dragonfish, Eurypegasus draconis, a type of seamoth. Seamoths are monogamous and bond closely with their mate.

We then meet the oriental flying gurnard. The juvenile oriental flying gurnard deters predators by appearing as large as it can. The false eyespots on its pectoral fins make it appear like a much larger fish from above.

The starry blenny, Salarias ramosus, is a type of combtooth blenny, of which there are some 400 species. By far the largest combtooth blenny is the hairtail blenny, Xiphasia setifer, also known as a snake blenny. It burrows its body into the sand, much like a snake eel.

Gobies represent the world's largest fish family, and one of the most varied. The yellow pygmy goby, Lubricogobius exiguus, traditionally seeks refuge in natural shelters such as empty shells. Here we meet a pair living in a discarded bottle.

Finally we encounter a toothy goby, Pleurosicya mossambica, a type of ghost goby, living on a sea pen, Pteroeides sp.. The sea pen receives neither benefit nor harm from the relationship, but provides the goby with shelter and a good spot to feed on plankton passing by in the current.

There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names.

"Mucky Secrets" is being serialised weekly on YouTube. Please subscribe to my channel to receive notifications of new episodes as I release them. The series will feature a huge diversity of weird and wonderful marine animals including frogfish, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, crabs, shrimps, moray eels, seahorses, octopus, cuttlefish etc..

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Sony HVR-Z1P HDV camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing with Light & Motion Elite lights and a flat port. A Century +3.5 diopter was used for the most of the macro footage.

A pair of saddleback clownfish (Amphiprion polymnus), also known as saddleback anemonefish, tend to their eggs at the dive site Bethlehem, between Caban Island and Marcaban Island near Anilao, Batangas, the Philippines.

Clownfish eggs are laid in a roughly circular patch stuck securely to the reef next to or slightly under the host sea anemone. The female lays the eggs and the male fertilizes them afterwards.

The parents continuously aerate the eggs with their mouths and fins to keep them oxygenated and clean as they grow. Any unhealthy eggs are picked off by the parents. The smaller male clownfish tends to do more of the work while the larger female parent defends the nest and her mate.

The eggs hatch in 7 to 10 days. As they develop the eyes become relatively large compared to the body. These eggs are quite mature and the larval clownfish babies probably hatch from the nest that night.

In the film Finding Nemo, the characters were intended to be a slightly different species: ocellaris clownfish, Amphiprion ocellaris, otherwise known as clown anemonefish.

The sea anemone in this footage is a carpet anemone, Heteractis sp..

I shot this footage at Anilao in the Philippines while diving with Crystal Blue Resort ( on their annual Critterfest workshop. Anilao is famous for its small marine life and the opportunities for underwater macro photography and videography.

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Panasonic GH4 in a Nauticam NA-GH4 housing. I used an Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens.

I had not made any dives in this area of the Pt Buchon Marine Protected area since before it was closed to fishing back on September 21st, 2007. It was always a very productive area, very full of life, and I imagined not much had changed. 

It was about the same as I remembered it. Lots of big lingcod, vermilion rockfish and sheephead. Huge schools of blue rockfish, and every square inch of real estate covered in encrusting invertebrates. This is one of the few spots on the Central Coast of California where I have found the California hydrocoral in abundance. 05:43

    [ Info ] Wannadive is safe! Hi, Firefox and Chrome users may experiment some difficulties in accessing Wannadive with their web browser. An ugly screen is telling Wannadive could provide malwares and not be safe!... Our ad server has been attacked Sept 15, and we did fix the problem a couple of hours later. Wannadive is now 100% safe. What still happen? Firefox and Google uses a database to track websites where malwares were detected. We ask Google to remove Wannadive from this database but it can takes a few hours/days? :-( Waiting for Google update, you can use a different web browser to access your favorite dive site atlas and community: Internet Explorer or Opera. Those browsers don\'t check Google\'s database. All the best, Wannadive team
