We found Nemo! Well, actually, his cousin. There are several varieties of clownfish in the reef, and not all have Nemo’s three white stripes.

I love all the colorful fish in the reef, but for some reason, this leopard-y guy is my absolute favorite. He has a certain elegance about him.

When I wasn’t chasing fish, I was really intrigued by the various kinds of coral down there. I call these the “potato chip coral”, though somehow I think scientists have come up with another name.
