Juvenile blueface angelfish, Gilimanuk, Bali, Indonesia.
Juvenile angelfish have very different markings to the adults. The bright markings are thought to be a deterent to predators, perhaps inferring that the fish is toxic like a flatworm. Gilimanuk or Secret Bay is located at the north western tip of Bali. It is open to cold upwellings of water that flow between Bali and Java. The daily influx of nutrient-rich cold water means this shallow site has become famous for unusual 'muck' critters or species, not easily found elsewhere in Indonesia. Gilimanuk has become very popular with underwater photographers. Bali is a very popular holiday destination for divers and offers a wide variety of different types of diving, from reefs and wrecks to mucks sites such as Puri Jati and Gilimanuk.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
