This video clip was shot at the exotic Black Forrest at Pulau Sangeang on the way to Komodo. The strange coral and black sand are clearly different from most dive locations, even in Indonesia. The bubbling of warm gases can be seen from beneath the sand at this volcanic island. I have never seen so many anthias on any site in the world. The coral was strange and the gorgonians were almost florescent green. Please refer to my Komodo gallery for still pictures of this location. This site was one of my all time best dives ever. The video was shot on 9/21/11 on a Pindito trip from Bali to Maumere.
