Sargassum Frogfish in Lembeh
Today’s mornig dives have been great again: We saw Pygmy Seahorses, Bandtail Frogfish, cool Nudibranchs and various uncommon Shrimps on the first dive at Tanjung Kareeko and several Painted Frogfishes, rare Nudibranchs, shrimps and lots of other cool stuff on our second dive at “Bianca”. But the coolest thing we saw just when surfacing from the second dive – a little Sargassum Frogfish floating at the surface, drifting with the floatsam.

Sargassum Frogfish are seen every now an then in the Lembeh Strait: Most of the time floating on the surface but occasionally also in the water column or on the ground.
