Description

Both images are via snorkel in shallow tide pool @ the Reef Watch intertidal monitoring site Lady Bay via Normanville.
Probably all are Common Weedfish.
First image includes @ least 3 probably 4 weedfishes (main subject=pale green fish, behind which only the dark head of another is visible behind a very small rock. A 3rd fish, with overt banding, is clearly seen behind that.
( I think there is a 4th even smaller fish , blurred ++, partly visible in detritus to R of green fish)
2nd image shows the same green one as per 1st image (with a blurry 2nd fish @ top L corner of field).
[Apologies to @amandahay and @markmcgrouther who have seen these images previously]
