That’s awesome brother, how do u get ur videos to post way they do
I can provide the steps for Android, perhaps another iPad/IOS user can provide the steps for Apple products.

  1. Sign up for a Youtube account
  2. Open a file browser on your Tablet/Phone and navigate to and play the video you want to upload.
  3. Click the Share icon and then select YouTube as the app you want to share to.
  4. Fill in the title and description and then click Upload.
  5. Play the uploaded video on Youtube and then click Share.
  6. Select Copy Link.
  7. Now in a Reef 2 Reef post, click the down arrow beside the Smiley icon and select Media.
  8. Paste the copied link in.
  9. Done, the Youtube video should now be embeded.

I was used to uploading through a desktop so I was baffed by the lack of an upload button in the Youtube App, the mobile version of YouTube Web and any other place Iooked. Then I googled it and saw that I could share directly to YouTube.

That looks like a day off to me!
A day off is hard for me because I hate being on land, if there was a Wawa on a barge in the ocean I’d hardly ever come home,, once in awhile swing into land for some loving and more Oregano, then off too the deep blue sea. I feel like I should of been born in the times of real sailors on one of those big butt sail boats, all wood with the three big sails blowing in the wind. Ahhhhh dreams/ that would be life for me

Spent some time in the lagoon this morning. We are going to a motou after breakfast for snorkeling, but I thought I would go see if the lagoon had anything interesting.

First up a flatfish.



Next we have some butterflys feeding on polyps. I managed to get them to go about their business and ignore me. So many butterfly pairs here.



Finally I came upon 5 stingrays feeding. It was still quite early, and cloudy, so the light is not great, but still cool to swim with some many rays, just out of the blue.



Now we are off to a remote motou where the snorkelling is supposed to be even better. I will post anything good.

Well last one for while hanging it up for the season, I now have off till last week March. Gives me time to engulf all energy to my tank. Thought a pic of a sunset would be appropriate

Today we changed to a new island (Bora Bora), but here a few shots and videos that I took yesterday at a motou in Moorea.

First up, a moorish idol getting a cleaning from a cleaner wrasse. There were 2 other wrasses doing cleaning as well, the other 2 were very pretty, half yellow and purple. They had a regular garage setup with all the locals stopping in as they swam by.



The fish in this area are not afraid of people as they get fed my the resort staff. Probably the reason I was able to get a video of a moorish idol without chasing him around and never getting close. But, the side effect is they beg like dogs. Coming right up to you and expecting a treat.

Here is a wrasse giving me puppy eyes. After several minutes he figured out I was not the one giving out food. It was tough keeping him on screen because he liked to be 6" from me, and kept circling me or swimming through my legs.



Here are some other shots including the begging wrasses and a butterfly that was also begging.


















The moorish idols did not beg, though that would have been funny to see.

Did you ever get to hear the parrotfish crunching on coral/rocks? When they do this its actually really loud. I got to see a few moorish idols myself, but they never got that close.
