Creature Feature: Filamented Flasher Wrasse

One of the most beautiful fishes and at the same time one of the most easies overseen is the Wrasse . These common Reef fishes swim around in the water column and build the ground noise on many reefs and rubble patches of the Lembeh Strait. The most stunning ones are the Flasher Wrasses. Only when ...

Lembeh Dive Sites: Nudi Falls

Nudi Falls is one of the most known and most popular divesites in Lembeh Strait. Maybe also because it is one of the most versatile divespots. Nudi Falls lays about in the middle of the Straits on the mainland side – just north of the village Tandu Rusa. It offers a combination of a Wall ...

Boxer-Shrimp attacking Puffer

Some Lembeh Dive Stories don’t request special Critters … like this one: On their recent stay at NAD-Lembeh our repeater Guests Dom & Babette were diving two weeks with our Guide Supervisor Paulus and were – besides many other cool critter sightings – lucky enough to witness a very special moment. On a Night dive ...

Creature Feature: Rhinopias

The Rhinopias are without question one of the most highly prized finds in Muck and Macro Diving. They are the most beautiful members of the Scorpionfish Family, have a good size for photography and … they are pretty rare. In Lembeh Strait you can find two different types of Rhinopias: The Paddleflap Rhinopias (rhinopias eschmeyeri) ...

Brain Suckers!

Following up to Bent’s enthusiasm for all things parasitic, i saw a parasitic copepod on a goby today at Nudi Falls, this one was on a soft coral so was in a nice position to shoot near to the sand. Once I took a photo or two I noticed a pulsation in the body of ...

Alien skull crab

On todays morning dive at Nudi Falls i found this cool crab. It is a very weird looking elbow crab whose colour and shape strongly remind of a skull – even though the shape is not really human … rather the one of the stereotypic Alien. So i will call it Alien Crab (i am ...

The hidden Lomanotus

As i am always happy to find Nudibranchs, that are different from the ones, that we usually see in Lembeh. So it was quite satisfying to find a bunch of Lomanotus Nudibranchs. The Lomanotus live (like also Doto Nudibranchs) on Hydroids and are very small – they grow to about 1cm in size. The first ...

Good light at Nudi Falls

Nudi Falls is one of the dive sites in Lembeh Strait that you can dive over and over again – at night, in the morning, for the second morning dive or for the first one. And it is always nice. Some of our guests requested to go to Nudi Falls again so that’s why we ...

2 dives 2 identical shrimps

This morning we had two fantastic dives again here in Lembeh Strait … the first one at Critter Hunt and the second one at Nudi Falls. Besides many cool critters such as Wonderpus, Seamoths, Nudibranchs and other things we saw two tiny shrimps of the same species. I found one on the first dive and ...

2 different Trapanias on a single dive

If you like Nudibranchs, then Lembeh is the place to go – a trasure chamber full of Nudibranchs and Slugs of all families. This was proved again on a recent dive at Nudi Falls. I can’t really remember how many different species of Nudibranch we counted in total, but it was very impressive and our ...
