A rocky anemone covered reef – hence the name – there’s always a clue. You’ll find a variety of stuff but you’ll need to look past the obvious, like this school of two spot snapper.
In sheltered spots you might find a short lionfish,
Or even a triggertail seahorse.
Mainly under small ledges, you’ll find juvenile boxfish,
And in tighter crevices, a moray or two, like this white eyed moray.
There are bearded scorpionfish laid everywhere around the Andaman Sea, so be careful before you find a spot to hold on to.
Another common ‘critter’ in the area generally is the variable thorny oyster.
