Here Be Dragons (or Rockmovers)

Thriving coral reefs teem with beautiful, spectacular fish, but the habits of some reef dwellers make them especially fascinating to watch. Such is the Rockmover Wrasse, Novaculichthys taeniourus. As a juvenile, this fish is often called the Dragon Wrasse for its fanciful appearance. The young wrasse has long, frilly spines and white spots. Its spines give this little fish a dramatic appearance, but that task may not be so easy, as the spines help young rockmovers hide among patches of seaweed.

With so many options in dive computers today, it can be tough to decide what computer is right for you. The first step is to consider the type of diving you do and are planning to do in the future. If you have no interest in technical diving, you probably don’t need a computer that does multi-gases such as trimix. However, if you are considering technical diving, it might be worth spending the extra dollars initially to get a computer that does both, instead of buying another in the future.

Demystifying Dive Computers Part 1

Dive computers conveniently provide divers with their current depth, duration of the dive, maximum depth attained, how much no-deco bottom time is remaining, water temperature, ascent rate and sometimes air pressure, all in one instrument. After a dive, computers will display the dive profile and often a history of many previous dives, the time until the diver can fly, and desaturation time.
