Belize: Ambergris Caye to Placencia

Atlantic Spadefish at The Elbow at Turneffe Atoll

Overall, The Elbow was disappointing, or at least relative to the literature. A nice wall but much of the dive was spent at the back reef.

We did see: cubera snapper, black grouper, dog snapper, 25 or so permit, many marching creole wrasse and this graceful shoal of 30 or so Atlantic spade fish.

We also found an uncommon dark mantis shrimp but I couldn't manage a picture up in the crevice where it took refuge.
