Hi coral-listers,

If you are interested, I have posted three videos of Rainbow Reef in the Somosomo Strait, NE Fiji.
These reefs were largely spared the full brunt of Cyclone Winston in Feb 2016 by the height of adjacent islands.
Very nice reefs, but large predatory fishes are rare from overfishing.
