Sent a PM with this info "Spotted Aglajid (Aglaja ocelligera)", however, I call them "Cigar Butt Nudi's"...
I usually see them all over at 3 tree and KVI...
Can't wait to go diving tomorrow...

Duh. That is what I get for trying to answer in the state of mind that I was in. I knew that. Thanks Jan.

Three Tree North about 30 feet today (Black Friday - went diving to avoid shoppers!), Redondo this evening about the same. Great viz at both places.

I left the tub in between my car and another guys truck. I had the lid shoved underneath the back of my car. The worst part is we were parked on the street, right in front of the little kitchen area that Salty's uses.

Ron -

Where was the rubbermaid when it got stolen? That just stinks. I leave mine out all the time right behind my truck. Guess I have been lucky.

Hope there wasn't anything in it.

I think the nudi in the first picture is a Dubious Dorid. I don't have my stuff with me right now, but, I think that is what it is. They show up in bundles. I am sure that Dusty or Jan will correct me if I am wrong.

Viz at Redondo this morning was 15fsw. We ran into that annoying downwelling again about half way into the dive and someone stole my Rubbermaid tub but still a decent dive.

Does anyone know what this is? Maybe 1/2" long in 30 fsw and they were all over the place.

Well, I was going to say at least 22.375 feet, but I guess I can scale it down to "20"

Not that it matters starting tomorrow, but Edmonds Oil Dock was 15-20 ft this morning. Did one last dive to pay my respects... :(

This may be too late to be helpful this weekend, but we dove Redondo this afternoon at high tide, and it was about 15 ft. Bob
