I don't recall seeing this shell before ... definitely not anything with the fronds but nor the outer colour either as far as I can recall.

Another partial specimen of the mysterious egg cluster. This time I was able to get an image of the contents (image #3) hoping that might help the process of identification.
(Apologies for large image size but I wanted to retain as much detail as possible).

Having recently discovered the importance of 'epiphytes' and their role in sea grass health, I decided to go looking for some.
Using the following web site as a reference, I believe the little white stalks growing on this plant are Hydrozoa - http://www.nzepiphytenetwork.org/blog/marine-epiphytes
But I could be wrong ... !

This appears to the right ID, however I've only ever heard them referred to as Slimy Mackerel.
They appear just before Christmas each year and are everywhere for a couple of months. However its rare (although not impossible) to catch one during the colder months of the year.

The latest 'victim' to be trapped in this tidal pool (see also https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/31770609).
Only a young one ... about 10 cm. It was fairly relaxed, pecking on algae and rocks.
20th Jan - I've now seen this fish (presumably the same one) in the pool on several days in the past couple of weeks. I don't think it's trapped at all ... this seems to have become its home!

This is one of the fish - in fact the main one - that I've always called a 'Rock Cod'.
Based on recent dialogue with @davemmdave and @rfoster, I believe it is in fact a juvenile or female (how can you tell the difference) Brownspotted Wrasse.

This certainly looks like one half of a bivalve. The clear separation between the strongly curved umbo and hinge area is unusual/distinctive (?).
It doesn't show-up very clearly, but this is another shell with (faint) lateral ridges as well as the strong radial ridges.
