Large barrel sponges protruded from the wall.
These were worth closer inspection, as hairy pink squat lobsters and flat rock crabs were spotted among the ridges of the sponges.
There were of course numerous turtles.
Feather stars perched themselves on coral heads to feed in the current.
Even these had tiny residents among their arms, such as the elegant squat lobster, Allogalathea elegans, and the crinoid clingfish, Discotrema crinophila.
