The nighttime dive captures bizarre reef denizens after-hours (to the tune of Massive Attack's eerie soundtrack).  Starting around 2:00 into the video, we see the amazing Flamboyant Cuttlefish (Metasepia pfefferi) displaying a stunning "light show" while stalking its prey.  Read Rich Ross' Advanced Aquarist article: "Metasepia pfefferi – the aptly named Flamboyant Cuttlefish" for more information about this amazing cephalopod.
