Looking in Sponges and Hiding Holes

When diving, I enjoy peering into tube sponges and other hiding holes. I never know what I will find. Will it be a Decorator Crab? A Coral Banded Shrimp? A tiny Gobi? Or will it be empty?

The tube sponges are mostly purple, but I find some that are golden orange. They provide a great background for taking pics of wildlife.

I also peek into holes in the coral and between rocks. This one held a File Clam, brilliant reddish orange body and light feathery fringe (highly technical word!).

This was day three of diving and I am already looking forward to day four, so I can peer into more hiding holes.
