I shot some of this footage while diving with YOS Dive Lembeh - Eco Beach Resort and NAD-Lembeh Resort in the Lembeh Strait, north Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Thanks to all the dive guides and critter spotters who helped me find these amazing creatures.

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Panasonic GH4 in a Nauticam NA-GH4 housing with Keldan Luna 4X lights or FIX Neo 1000 DX SW II lights. I used an Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens and a Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 macro lens. On some shots I used a Nauticam Compact Macro Converter CMC-1.
