Green Island Hammerhead Trip (Feb11) C 054.jpg
Shi Lang, Green Island - A piece of soft coral, Xenia cf. mucosa, kicked loose by a careless diver and floating in mid-water.
The soft coral species depicted here is very slimy as it gives off copious amounts of mucus when handled.
Divers should always adjust their buoyancy properly in order to avoids kicking up coral and damaging the reef.
