Description

Very small individual, ~5cm long, very well colour matched to its surroundings (not unlike, but quite unlike this one which very much looked like someone had magicked a piece of kelp to life...), and was very determined to swim toward my light. I spent this whole sequence back swimming to keep it in front of me, and wishing I'd had a more suitable macro lens for capturing this one in action.

Not sure of the ID - would appreciate confirmation.

I've never seen a weedfish swimming in the water column so was caught by surprise when it launched itself up.

I believe this is a Pygmy devil ray seen outside of its normal habitat in the deeper waters of Shelly Beach, Manly. It was shy and swam away very quickly when approached.

I have never seen this purple colouration before and it stuck out as being unusual next to many other Eastern Fortescue in the vicinity. It was bigger too. I am assuming the Id based on naked area above the lateral line

Description

Photo and observation: Paul Hellier (https://www.instagram.com/p/CJ9ncAzlaw1/ for original) posted here with permission. Looks like a juvenile diamond trevally Alectis indica (it appears to have elongate filaments on pelvic fins which would distinguish it from the pennant fish A. cillaris). Size: roughly 25 mm.
