Palechin Moray Eel (Gymnothorax Herrei)

This photo of a Palechin Moray Eel (Gymnothorax Herrei) with a pair of Regal Demoiselles (Neopomacentrus Cyanomos) gives an excellent impression of just how small this species is in comparison to its locally occurring relatives.

Great Barracuda (Sphyraena Barracuda)

This small, 1 - 1.5m Great Barracuda (Sphyraena Barracuda) appeared at Sail Rock, Koh Phangan in late December 2010.

This is by far the least commonly encountered species of Barracuda in local waters, so hopefully this one will stick around for a while.

Pick-Handle Barracuda (Sphyraena Jello)

For the many species that regularly attend a "cleaning station", such as those provided by the Blue-Streak Cleaner Wrasse (Labroides Dimidiatus), it is customary to inform the cleaners that they are not on the menu (for the time being at least!).
