My brother, sister in law and I were diving The Cove Thursday. At the 70 foot blocks, Peggy saw a different looking fish and with dive light, got my attention. Moved in closer and started taking a few pictures and video clips of the 3-4 incher. Sure looks like a China rockfish, but everyone we talke...

White Tang?

Enjoying some diving time in Kona,
But went snorkeling today and saw this tang.
Wondering if it is an albino, unique coloration or 'sick'?
Appeared to be moving about and feeding normal.

Thanks.

Wonders of the Sea 3D

Enjoyed the special showing of 'Wonders of the Sea 3d" tonight.

Excellent 3D of marine life from Fiji, California, Sea of Cortez and Bahamas.

If available again, worth seeing once.

Sea Cucumber feeding

I find it interesting that with 10 'arms', they manage to only have one at a time in their mouth.

Video is about 1 minute.

When I eat, seems like I can find ways to get both hands/fingers into my mouth and numerous times have managed to put my foot in my mouth due to what I said. :nutty: #-o
