Pygmy Paradise?

Over the past few months we have been diving in Triton Bay, we have been fortunate to see our fair share of pygmy seahorses.  They have been found on almost every site we dive – though not on every dive as they sometimes are just not there, having moved on or for whatever reason.  Most common by far are the Bargibanti, both pink and yellow, but we have also seen Denise, Pontohi (in various colors), and Severns.  On one sea fan in Bo’s Rainbow we counted more than 20 Bargibanti, and it is common for us to find sea fans with families of 5~8 individuals.  Below are a few pics taken over two dives last week.  Enjoy!
