We were on the wall at the Siladen Timur dive site, on the reef that surrounds the resort island of Siladen (site of the Siladen Resort and Spa).  As we drifted with the gentle current, my guide pointed into a small concavity in the reef wall, completely ringed by hydroids.  (The object in this frame that looks like a tan fern is actually a stinging animal, related to jellyfish.)  Peering into the depression I saw a red robust ghost pipefish.
