Species List 19-01-2011 near Shellacey Reef

11 Species found at a new spot 70m northwest of Shellacey Reef, Surface conditions where perfect! Very dirty water 3-5m viz and very dark at the bottom after the floods and rain. Where's was my torch? Colour was muted out like just before night fall. We were up for a challenge. Could not get any substrate shots due to the darkness. 1st dive/2nd dive.
