In your shot of the Arrow Crab (in and of itself something divers don't expect to find at Catalina) did you notice what's behind it?

It's the third goby that we have here in SoCal, the rarely-seen (because they're skittish) Zebra Goby. They look similar to the Blue-Banded Goby but the stripes are narrower and they're not as boldly colored.
