Cool pics! Starry map puffer. And maybe some tilefish. I have seen a lot of wild species but never seen wild sally lite foots. They may be a little different but look very similar almost more cool! I would have had my net and bucket ready haha

Cool photos! Wish I were there!

Badx was talking about the crabs doing their job. It made me think of something that would be helpful for those of considering starting into the salt water side of the hobby. I would really like to see a chart of all of the jobs that need to be done in a salt water aquarium. And then some kind of list associated with each job as to which critter would be able to do the job. If there's no critter that can skim protein for example, a piece of equipment could be listed. The jobs could be ranked top to bottom from most important to least. The critters could be ranked from most effective to least. (or from most expensive to least.) Anyone ever seen anything like that? Keeping a healthy aquarium appears to be more of an art form than a recipe but even a short list of the five most crucial jobs would be helpful to newbys.

Merry Christmas!

yes the 6th picture down does look like a species of tile fish, possibly hoplolatilus starcki or hoplolatilus cuniculus. The polyps shown are in the genus palythoa, in the family zoanthidae (zoanthids).
