Conditions: ?

Visibilty: 8m

Water Temp: ??c

Bottom Time: 50minutes

Max Depth: 20m

Details: This was wasn’t much of a site, more of a bank than any decent overhangs, pinnacles or bommies. That was until I spotted a peculiar looking “sponge” oscilating in the surge after floating down from the top of a boulder. I went closer to investigate and couldn’t believe my eyes…in fact it took me about 10 minutes of thinking I’ve discovered some rare anglerfish or handfish to realise this was the illusive Warty Prowfish- Aetapcus maculatus. The rest of the dive was spent photographing this cool looking critter. The area is now known as Warty Wall ;)

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm 2 X YS-D1 Strobes
