Last night I went on a night dive at Emon Beach and saw not one but TWO octopuses! Other highlights include seeing one of the red carpet anemones ball up (first time I’d seen that, it was pretty awesome) and a moray eel.

Note the little Porcelain Anemone Crab peeking out on the left side of the anemone
A boxfish that allowed me to get quite close before it turned around and swam towards me
Moray eel, heavily cropped. When I first saw this from a bit of a distance, I thought it was an eel, but wasn’t positive, so took a photo. When I got closer, I just saw all the leafy material and thought I may have been seeing things. Once I looked at my photos, I confirmed it was indeed an eel!
Some sort of butterflyfish
