Our house reef is full of marine life including many colourful reef fish such as the ornate wrasse, the parrot fish and puffer fish as well as shoals of bream, damsel fish and sardines. You may also see octopus & cuttlefish and there is always the chance of seeing larger fish such as barracuda, rays and the endangered Angel Shark.
