Did you know that Mandarin fish mate just after sunset and that they live in small populations and are very skiddish  You can only find them using red lights  which they can t see.. The mating only lasts for a few seconds.

This is a lovely mangrove dive. The boat brings you close to the trees and you enter the water near the roots. In the deeper parts lots of Lembeh seadragons and nudibranch, lots of elephant ears too. The shallow parts showcases lots of tree roots covered in red orange corals. Archer fish cruise around.
