404. Inspecting the coral
The corals had seen their best days. If it was because of global warming or the sheer number of divers (Sipadan can host over 100 divers doing four or five dives every day) was hard to tell. Probably it was a little of both.
    During the night, the reef was entirely different. We were diving along the wall just outside the dive centre and all corals had put their red tentacles out. It was a great show, with big parrotfish looming around over and below, and the flashlights from other divers further away creating a spectacular light.
