Sardine Reef is a small reef that resembles an oval-shaped underwater hill on the east side of Kri. Soft coral, gorgonian fans, black coral bushes and slopes of coral heads populate the whole Sardine Reef area. Large schools of fusiliers, sardines, damsels, banner fish, butterfly fish, sweetlips and snappers frequent the site, picking tasty morsels out of the current.
Triggerfish and predators such as barracuda, Spanish mackerel, Jacks and giant trevallies can be seen as well. At the top of the food-chain, black tipped reef sharks, white tipped reef sharks and even grey reef sharks usually cruise the surroundings.
A typical scene where you couldn’t begin to count the number of organisms in a single frame.
And the whole scene is teeming with small reef fish.
The more you look the more you see – like this tasselled wobbegong
Everywhere there are unique combinations of corals, hard, soft, bushy and coating.
The reef society carries on its business without heed of the visiting divers.
There’s a Titan trigger hiding in this scene somewhere…
I reckon this Freckled Hawkfish owns this particular clump.
