Manila Ocean Park

  1. Hi all,

    I've been meaning to post this earlier, but our office internet is acting up again, off and on; just yesterday it did not allow me to see my emails. Anyway I took these photos at Manila Ocean Park middle of August, really great place to see marine life.

    Starfish:

    At least they stay put or move very slowly, kinda hard to tell a fish to slow down or stop so its picture can be taken.:supergrin: BTW flash is forbidden.
     
  2. Now these fish, they just stay put:

    And this crab, I swear it hasn't moved the last time I was there, still staring at the place where food is handed to it:

    I don't remember what this is called, but unlike ordinary fish it has a hard shell:

  3. The "Fish Spa", where you immerse your feet in a shallow pool and let little fish nibble away the dead skin from your feet.

    Yours truly's feet being "doctored":supergrin:. If you're ticklish, as I was, hang in there, you'll get used to it. Real benefits too, feet get really cleaned.

    Nice pics! Thanks for sharing :)

    I'm pretty sure those aren't anemones, but rather, Catalaphyllia jardinei which
    is a rather fleshy coral. Occasionally in aquaria, Amphiprion percula will adapt
    and start "bonding" vigorously with it, pero sana lang nakakuha sila ng proper
    host, like Stichodactyla gigantea, S. mertensii or Heteractis magnifica.

    Those are called box fish. Had a friend whose into saltwater fish export business before and seen em and several exotic specimen :)
     
  13. Hiya Ding! Nice to hear from you again.

    Thanks for the replies. It's really a magical place (for P400 entrance, it better be:supergrin:, but well worth it). I plan to go back there soon to have my feet "doctored" again (takes the smell out for weeks, guaranteed), and to check out what's new, I heard they've got a jellyfish display now. I've seen coral reefs in my home province, as well as some of the fish there; dried "box fish" is a common hanging ornament in coast barangay houses back home. It's also nice to see the fish and coral when wading through low tide waters, right before you step on the "tuyom":supergrin:.

    there's a marine sanctuary in Anilao where you can snorkel and watch the marine life in their natural environment
    I forgot the name of the dive resort who maintains it
    i'm embarassed to say I majored in marine zoology , but the only fish I could identify in the pics above are the tasty ones :)
