"Mucky Secrets" is a nature documentary about the marine life of the Lembeh Strait at the heart of the Coral Triangle off north Sulawesi in Indonesia. The Lembeh Strait is a popular scuba diving destination, famed for its excellent "muck diving". A huge diversity of weird and wonderful marine creatures can be found on the mucky seabed, including everything from tropical fish to benthic sharks to nudibranchs. Critters compete for survival with an armoury including camouflage, mimicry, toxicity, and dazzling coloration.

"Mucky Secrets" is an excellent resource for scuba divers, aquarists, marine biology students and anybody interested in the underwater world. The documentary features underwater macro footage from many of Lembeh's famous dive sites including Critter Hunt, Police Pier, Tanjung Kusu-Kusu, Nudi Falls, Aer Perang, Jahir, Makawide, Nudi Retreat, Retak Larry, TK (Teluk Kembahu), Hairball and Aw Shucks.

There are subtitles/CC tracks for the narration and for the scientific and common names of the marine species, along with the dive site names.

Thanks to:
- Two Fish Divers (http://twofishdivers.com) who I stayed and dived with on Lembeh Island, and especially to their keen-eyed dive guides for their critter spotting
- Phiangpis Phanchana for diving and production assistance
- Gerry Allen and Teresa Zubi (http://starfish.ch) for assistance with marine species identification
- Bill Rudman for creating the now-idle sea slug forum (http://seaslugforum.net), still an invaluable source of knowledge.

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Sony HVR-Z1P HDV camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing with Light & Motion Elite lights and a flat port. A Century +3.5 diopter was used for the most of the macro footage. 32:25

The fire urchin, Asthenosoma varium, is a dangerous sea urchin. It is characterized by a fiery coloration and by globular swellings beneath the tips of it's thousands of venomous spines. It can infict a very painful sting.

Various crustaceans form commensal relationships with the fire urchin to protect themselves from predators. Coleman shrimps, Periclimenes colemani, usual live in pairs on top of the fire urchin. The female is larger than the male. Zebra crabs, Zebrida adamsii, and urchin shrimps, Allopontonia brockii, are often found near the bottom of fire urchin. They feed on organic matter on the substrate as the sea urchin moves. This type of symbiotic relationship benefits the shrimps and crabs but not the host urchin.

Allopontonia iaini is a synonym of Allopontonia brockii.

I shot this footage at Anilao in the Philippines while diving with anilao PHOTO hotel (https://www.facebook.com/anilaophotohotel) and with Crystal Blue Resort (http://www.divecbr.com) on their annual Critterfest workshop. Thanks to dive guides and critter spotters Ivan, Obet and Jomel.

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Panasonic GH4 in a Nauticam NA-GH4 housing. I used an Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens and 60mm f2.8 macro lens.
