Hairy Shrimp with eggs

We found this very small critters on 3-day trip with a Korean customer Lindsay. Actually we found a green color of hairy shrimp. But it was too small to take pictures. Next time we try to find a more bigger green hairy shrimp and take pictures. Photo’s takes by Lindsay.

Blue Ringed Octopus (with eggs)

Now and then we find a Blue ringed octopus or a Mototi octopus at Samal Island. We continued checking on her but we missed the hatching of the eggs. Our last dive the mother left and all we found was the empty egg shells. It would have been great to have some video footage about the hatching of the eggs. Better luck next time.

The Harlequin Shrimp

After the old family of Samal Island Harlequin Shrimps disappeared in a strange way, we found this new family. The old ones probably ended up in the aquarium trade or in a private aquarium. We had them in two locations and both families disappeared the same day :-( Now the new ones are found, we are ready again to bring divers to this most beautiful shrimps.
