Really cool to see these. There were a couple solitary ones and a couple of small schools around different Lions mane jellyfish. One swam deep into the jellyfish's' stomach to get away from me.

~2-5cm long

Description

There were a few of these around in the rock pools. Sometimes in twos, or in a small group. They look like juvenile of something and I've taken a guess that they're some kind of drummer. I even wondered if they could be parore that haven't yet grown stripes.
They were interested in and appeared to feed on the crushed oyster I dropped in.
Photos VERY heavily cropped from GoPro images.
