These big triggerfish entertained us often in Cozumel.
Videograph by Rich Torkington in Cozumel 2003 
Dive Journal: Our first afternoon dive takes us to Yucab as we progress our way south to north during the day. Ron refers to Yucab as reef overload. The dense coral and sponge formations here are stunning and so beautifully arranged that I am wondering who planted them. There are loads of triggerfish here that provide lots of reef activity. Occasionally a long parade of creole wrasses will stream through as well. Im glad Johnny is feeling better and he does well on this dive.

As expected, my vid batteries give out early, and so Im filming blind for most of the dive.
