Smaller subjects typically 1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 7.5cm) shot on macro settings or with macro equipment that are in MID WATER not touching anything (i.e. between 1:1 and 1:3)
Facial- I needed a yellow mouthed eel to replace a bungled shot in my portfolio for the Sodwana Shootout 2015 on the last day. Found this one with two minutes dive time left

A Dutoiti Dottyback (Pseudochromis dutoiti) . One of the benefits of using a 100mm macro lens instead of the shorter 60mm, one can take shots of the more skittish species too.

found thsi almost transparent littel fish in the weeds at the end of a dive on Rooneys, Sodwana. I initially thought it was a pipe fish but is was too small to see. Only when processing the pictures, could I see that it was a small trumpetfish.

A tiny slender filefish hides in a gorgonian--no crop. I spent my entire dive actively searching for a slender filefish. I was all the way to the next dive site when I finally found this one.

Jellyfish Lake in Palau is a fascinating ecosystem where only snorkeling is allowed and millions of jellyfish surround you. Isolating one with the sun behind took quite a bit of time, but the result was definitely worth it.
