Welcome to our Weekly Roundup! Last week we had porcelain crabs, cuttlefish, turtle power, rebreather diving, and Mr Bean on first aid.
In Bunaken we have been spotting Porcelain crabs during our dives; in Lembeh we have been seeing the flashy flamboyant cuttlefish on numerous dive sites; in Lembongan we have had turtle power as we have had at least 1 turtle on every dive this week; Tec has been busy in Bunaken with Gas blender courses, pool try-outs and guests on rebreathers; and in our DMTs we say goodbye to Holger, more news from Isabelle in Bunaken and help to Pia in Lembongan.
Meanwhile, from around the globe we show you how they shoot those amazing shark photos; highlight some of those critters who would rather eat than be eaten; explain what nitrox is and how to take advantage of it; ask you to help the reefs and stop buying coral stuff; use Mr Bean to explain why its good to know some First Aid; give you some ideas for a romantic dive holiday; and give you some tips to make sure your regulator works properly.

This Week in Two Fish
This week on Bunaken … Spotting Porcelain crabs during a dive. These brightly coloured and patternated elusive crustaceans measuring upto 2cm can usually be found seeking shelter between the tentacles or the underside of sea anemones. Like the clown fish that live among the anemones the porcelain crab employs the same method to avoid being stung, coating itself in the anemone mucus tricking it into thinking its is part of itself.
This week on Lembeh … we have been seeing the flashy flamboyant cuttlefish on numerous dive sites. Enough to a point where some photographers no longer turn on their cameras for them. That’s saying something!
This week in Lembongan … The waters have been full of turtle power, with at least 1 turtle on every dive this week! Divers have had to choice whether to look at the manta rays feeding or the swimming turtles.
This week in tec … Tec has been busy, TDI Gas blender, Tec try-out in the pool, TDI Air Diluent CCR and we welcome Sonia for fun diving on her brand new JJ CCR.
