This is my 8th year as a diver. My patch of underwater heaven is in Beautiful Moreton Bay and surrounding waters, including Curtin Artifical Reef, Flinders reef (Moreton Bay Marine Park), Hutchinson Shoal, Henderson's Reef, Megs Reef (Gotham City) and other amazing sites, too many to name.
Took this photo 29 Feb 2004 at Hutchinsons Shoal, Moreton Bay. Any ideas WHAT it is, was in a cave crawling at some speed across the roof - Was about 6-8 inches wide shaped like a cone... Thousands of spines for feet...Colours amazing!!! - Peter, it's a fire urchin, Asthenosoma ijimai if I'm not mistaken (Tim).
Though this picture was petty special but looks like they are everywhere. Third picture on this gallery I think. Was taken Finders reef, Moreton off Brisbane. Thought it was a bit of soft coral at first, amazing - Cannon S 40
