I went to look for the mated couple of froggies but I got distracted on the way to the location and decided to check on the mating F. marcussorum. They are still there and pretty busy laying pink eggs all around. I want to watch those eggs grow. Once in nudi world I decided to look for the froggie I saw last week but I found a pregnant seahorse instead. Small belly and very shy. I left him alone. Next to is I saw a small F. marcussorum with white tips that also had lay eggs. I didn't see its partner. Small belly and very shy. I left him alone. I headed north pass the wall by the columns looking "the tires" for tires and forund 3 but not my subjects or the markers I was looking for. I saw a mantis shrimp pushing sand. I snapped a shot and headed to the log and ended up at the gate to nudiworld. I visited the 2 jawfish with empty jaws and found a very active yellow blenny on one of the pilings. Pretty cool. After that I went quickly by the log to look for the pink popsicle sticks from the
day before but they were gone and the current was turning so I headed to the beach. Cold and hungry I got out of the water and went to publix, had lunch and filled up my bottle.
Since there was no wind and viz still 20 ft under the sailboats I decided to go back in and do a second dive. I found a bright yellow pike blenny and played with it for a 1000 psi trying to get a shot of the inside of its mouth. I will know if I got something when I open the housing. I got to the edge of the channel that goes under the small bridge and the current was ripping and it took me right to the sailboats from the swimming zone. I headed west and decided to save other 1500 psi left on my tank for tomorrow. I dove my 80 SS with 36% my fist five and 40% my second. I love NItrox!
