Awesome work. I think my favorite scenes are the two moray eels with divers in the background, the mantis shrimp digging a hole, the cuttle fish in the water column, the yawning hairy frog fish and of course the blue ring octo.

Also, gopro's make me look fat underwater. And above water too.

Great video! It's amazing what kind of footage is achievable with a go-pro, adequate lighting and skills. I was a big fan of the Harlequin Shrimp footage and the octos.
