In Reply to: A few pics from this weekend posted by Ross-O on May 14, 2006 at 22:29:16:

great photos ross

the nudi looks like a Doriopsilla spaldingi

the first 2 salp photos look like a stinging siphonophore, praya... a relative of the portuguese man-of-war, not a salp.

rockfish looks like a gopher or copper rockfish

the shrimp is a coonstripe shrimp

the anemone seems to be a colonial cup coral, I've seen a lot of that species before

hope this was helpful, scott
