Pawai: Two dives 12/14/17

Big north west swell today so we had to seek refuge in Pawai Bay.  Not a bad place since it's a no-take area.  So fishy.  I was still unhappy to have missed the Red Frogfish at Golden Arches last week, so was glade to hear there was one at Pawai Bay.  Went to look for him and there he was!

Just before finding this beauty we stumbled onto a harem of Psychedelics with their male.

Male Psychedelic Wrasse
Thing is about these fish is that there is one male, and if he gets taken, or just wanders off for too long one of the females (above) will transition into a male and everyone's happy again.

As if that wasn't enough, here are the rest of the fish I saw today.

 Here are a couple of White mouth Eels, and one of them is suggesting to the other to look elsewhere for a hole.
