It’s just before the sun disappears and most of us divers feel like having a beer, when the actual magic on the reef happens. Mating Mandarin Fish are something all divers should experience at least once during their stay in Lembeh. It’s when one of the most beautiful and stunning fish appears briefly to mate around sunset time in order to avoid any bright light.
This turns out to be an issue if you’re photographer of course because pictures are best taken when there is a lot of light. Luckily there is a few tricks which can be applied and the fact that the “Lembeh Mandarin Fish” are not shy at all really helps!
