Wonder what you see on intertidal trips are all that you see? Ever ponder what could be all around you in the very water you stand? I did some water sieving using a fine net among the seagrasses, and even to my very own surprise... the following are what you can get!
Note: Everything here are smaller than 1cm (10mm), with some almost undistingushable with naked eye.
Cool looking shrimps, both carrying eggs.
Another two different type of amphipods.
Isopods, one green and one translucent just like the shrimps.
Two different types of copepods.
Seen a baby crab before? But not all baby crabs look like their parents as they go through a larva stage which is what you see here.
From left: Arrowhead worm, unknown nematod.
'Baby' bristle worm. This is just slightly longer than 1cm.
AND a nudibranch?!?! Cool eh? Anyone know what's this?
Never over look the micro organism in the water! You never know what surprises await you!
