Magic Carpet

This week in one location where Miguel’s Diving brings diver is a rare natural phenomena: the sudden appearance of millions of Bennett’s tobies. They form moving carpets that sail along the coral walls. Divers can swim through the schools, watching them part for divers and bubbles. This event is only recorded from two of Sulawesi’s diving locations, that is Gorontalo and the remote island volcano of Una-una, both of which are in Tomini Bay. This huge bay is formed by two arms of Sulawesi. Diving right now is prime. Soon these fish will begin to attach each other, bite off each other’s fins and begin to die. Because the fish has toxic glands, most predators will not venture to eat the dead or dying tobies. Miguel’s Diving staff presume this phenomena is related to spawning.
