I had some time off of work while up in Monterey on March 28th, 2013. Kristin and I decided to make a dive at Monastery Beach in Carmel, just off the 1. 

The surge was up a little, so we had to get in at the North side of the beach, since there was a little shelter from the sets there. The wind was very light. I did not have high hopes for this dive, since the water looked quite green, and there was an obvious Spring bloom going on.

The bad visibility did not disappoint, and we had just a few feet of vis. Still, this was a pretty spectacular dive. We saw a lot of invertebrates including decorator crabs, abalone, and many types of sea stars and sea anemones.  There were a bunch of fish too, including rockfish (black, blue, black and yellow, gopher, kelp, and olive), kelp greenlings, cabezon, and others. At the end of the dive a fat harbor seal made an appearance. 04:43

Cardinalfishes & trumpetfish. Part 6 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine creatures of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia.

In this video I first take a look at the Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni. This is an invasive species which was introduced to the Lembeh Strait in the year 2000, and now competes with anemonefish for territory. Although it appears to be thriving in the Lembeh Strait and a few other locations, the Banggai cardinalfish is nonetheless still an endangered species because of its popularity in the ornamental fish trade.

We then encounter other species of cardinalfish (Apogonidae) in the area, Moluccan cardinalfish, Ostorhinchus moluccensis, the orbiculate cardinalfish, Sphaeramia orbicularis, and the frostfin cardinalfish, Ostorhinchus hoevenii, sheltering in the spines of sea urchins.

Finally we witness a trumpetfish, Aulostomus chinensis, preying on a small group of frostfin cardinalfish. The trumpetfish's slim profile and stealth allow it to creep up very slowly on the unsuspecting cardinalfish, before making its attack. The trumpetfish sucks in the cardinalfish in a method known as "pipette feeding".

There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names.

"Mucky Secrets" is being serialised weekly on YouTube. Please subscribe to my channel to receive notifications of new episodes as I release them. The series will feature a huge diversity of weird and wonderful marine animals including frogfish, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, crabs, shrimps, moray eels, seahorses, octopus, cuttlefish etc..

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Sony HVR-Z1P HDV camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing with Light & Motion Elite lights and a flat port. A Century +3.5 diopter was used for the most of the macro footage.

    [ Info ] Wannadive is safe! Hi, Firefox and Chrome users may experiment some difficulties in accessing Wannadive with their web browser. An ugly screen is telling Wannadive could provide malwares and not be safe!... Our ad server has been attacked Sept 15, and we did fix the problem a couple of hours later. Wannadive is now 100% safe. What still happen? Firefox and Google uses a database to track websites where malwares were detected. We ask Google to remove Wannadive from this database but it can takes a few hours/days? :-( Waiting for Google update, you can use a different web browser to access your favorite dive site atlas and community: Internet Explorer or Opera. Those browsers don\'t check Google\'s database. All the best, Wannadive team
