Nerite Snail. These snails are rather common. Majority of them were found on the rocks.
Crabs. Tons of really really tiny crabs. Well, even though they are small, the shells are really pretty!! I love the patterns of them!!
Hermit crab... I notice that about half of the hermit crabs were holding on to another shell... I wonder why??? But it's looks amusing as it looks like the hermit crab has a luggage!!!
Shrimps. Based on what I saw today, there are probably 2 different species around.. The shrimps grow up til really big (5cm?)
Found another commensal shrimp too!!
While taking photos of the shrimps, i found something black moving behind the mermaid's fan... Then I realise it was a fish!! I waited for quite a long while before the fellow decided to come out.. Patience is ALL you need!!! :)
Fishes. Surprisingly I saw quite a good number of fishes today. Most of them are either trap or hiding. Trap because it is low tide, the water column is really minimal. Cant move about too much.. But even so, most of the photos werent too good. Well, i'll try again next time!!!
Button Snail's shell. Oh!! This cute little shell caught my eyes!! Like the crabs, I love the patterns on them too!! :)
Should be Persian carpet flatworm (Pseudobioceros bedfordi). SUPER HUGE!!! This is the first time i actually see such a HUGE flatworm.. (at least 10cm in length?)
Corals. I'm really glad to see some corals growing there. This is a good sign because where corals grows, other fauna would probably come along too... :)
Look at the close up.. there's some feeding apparatus... Looks like those belonging to barnacles...
Is this a type of coral too??
Gong Gong with its pair of curious eyes. Feeding in process... :)
Anemone. This one is REALLY HUGE (~10cm?)
Found another really tiny anemone... really pretty mouthpart at the centre..
While taking photos, it suddenly erect itself... Moving house??
and true enough, it was really moving house!!! HAHA.
Particularly here at Tanah Merah, I found LOTS of weird stuffs.
First unknown is this red tube-like structure...
Second, a scorpionfish??? Look at the colours!! pretty spots! :)
What I initially spotted here was the sea hare. Then, i saw something wriggling in and out of a hole.. It looks like a worm but a pretty one with really nice bristles!!! :)
I found another tube like structure and something is hiding inside... I waited for quite a while, but nothing came out except some feeding apparatus... HAHA.
