I was wrong! From the bright red urchins to pale green, yellow, orange, red and purple corals, this place is full of different colours!
We saw small bright pink crabs, pink lobsters, snow-white and orange sea stars and … fish in disguise!
We met this funny looking fish during our ROV dives at Melville. It is a banded yellowfish ... real name Centriscops humerosus.
It is from the same group of fish as sea horses. Any resemblance?
We can find it at this range of latitude all around the southern hemisphere (Southeast Atlantic: South Africa; Southwest Atlantic: Argentina. Southwest pacific: Australia and New Zealand). Its depth range is usually 450 – 700m.
