Trigger Warning….guaranteed fish content!

Yes Triggerfish everywhere, hiding in every rock crevice around the bay. Three species today, the Wedge-tail, Half Moon and Bridled triggerfish, the latter often mistaken for the Half-Moon, but on close inspection you can see uneven lines on the lower part of the body. A few of the tropical that have been around for a while are quite large now, in particular a solitary Orange Basslet and a Half and Half Puller. I was circled at one point by the Weeping Toadfish, trying to avoid it’s picture being taken. Another ploy to avoid a photo is camouflage, employed by the painted stinkfish. It glides across the bottom then “freezes” making it hard to spot against the sand.
