Kok Sheng and Pei Yan did the awesome reefy seawalls. Which are too slippery for me to manage. Here's more on Kok Sheng's blog.

Reef octopus slithered among the rocks.
Needle seagrass sprinkled with Spoon seagrass with small leaf blades. They were growing in very soft silty sand. Crawling among them were lots of Flat-armed brittle stars and other creatures such as Penaeid prawns, Orange-striped hermit crabs, small Thorny sea cucumbers.
baby Knobbly sea star?
Cake sea star and several Spiny sea stars.
Haddon's carpet anemones among the seagrasses and most of them had a pair of Anemone shrimps. The mama shrimp of this pair appears to be carrying eggs (green stuff on her belly).
Mini carpet anemone. And among the rocks, some Frilly sea anemones.
Noodle seagrass! It was about 2x2m.
Tape seagrass with nice long leaf blades. Tape seagrass grows in circles, so this one is probably one plant.
Hairy spoon seagrass.
Spoon seagrass with larger leaf blades.
Thorny sea cucumbers. I'm not sure what is going on. Prelude to mating?
Giant carpet anemone.
Button zoanthids, there were lots of Tiny red sea cucumbers!
