Cynthia was diving just off of Keauhou about 9:00am when she spotted a group of about 5 mantas getting cleaned. Two of them were new mantas to MPRF and one was Rena Ray, a female. (The other was a male, Trent-O). This great photograph by Cynthia shows the Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse, Labroides phthirophagus, showing typical cleaning station behaviour.
