Hello Andrew.

Picture's fine, no worries. And it is nice to see so much coral still left (just a few km nw of Lameshur Bay).

But is that a colony of the fecal bacteria bioindicator Cliona delitrix I see, upper right?

....there is no good news.

An entire ridge at Mingo Cay (just north between St Thomas & St John, USVI)
blanketed in star coral polyps, must have been at least 20 yards in length
