This is what Kok Sheng shared of the corals growing there! But of course only Kok Sheng aka the Human Climbing Crab can cover this treacherously slippery area in such quick time!

Zebra coral, and Melted chocolate sponge.
Pore corals too.
disk corals, several encrusting Goniopora corals.
Flowery disk coral in the water.
sea fan, and a few cerianthids.
Serrated ribbon seagrass!
Spoon seagrass with large leaves, and a tiny clumps of Noodle seagrass. Kok Sheng saw some Tape seagrass and Needle seagrass.
swimming crabs near the rocks. Jianlin saw Red egg crabs.
Haddon's carpet anemones. I couldn't take a closer look because the ground was soft and silty.
Window pane shells. This one has Agar-agar seaweed growing on it. Wedged among the rocks I saw a Fan shell clam.
Seagrass octopus in the shallow waters. He also saw Reef octopuses in the reefier areas.
Zoanthids and nestled among them, a Miliaris cowrie. Jianlin and Kok Sheng also saw an Arabian cowrie, which is also quite commonly seen at Tanah Merah.
tiny sea anemone with spots that Prof Daphne, world authority on sea anemones, discovered in Singapore but in the mangroves of the north. Interesting to see it so far south!
White sea urchin, and some Striped sand anemones.
Alas, I came across a few small bundles of abandoned fish nets.
the reef that has settled naturally on the artificial seawalls at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal.
Singapore Great Barrier Reef. Which was to consider planning the East Coast reclamation to allow and encourage natural regeneration. Extensive reclamation at East Coast Park is among the massive reclamation plans outlined in the Land Use Plan following the Population White Paper.
