Acropora Table Coral
This image was taken in one of the trenches on the north eastern side of Flat Rock just north of Stradbroke Island, Australia. Sealife DC1200. There was not much current at all on that day, and the conditions were very comfortable with visibility at about 10-15m. I was impressed by the large table coral that was very prevalent at that site. I remember the small fish (humbugs and others) that would use the branches of the table coral as shelter. This photo appeals to me because of the diverse colours that are formed by the sponges and other life around the top of the trench. Much of the dive we would swim gently along the trenches and over into the next trench. Often the tops of the trenches were decorated with these table coral, and anemone.
