Went out diving this weekend to an area that is on the backside of Catalina Island called Farnsworth Banks. The diving out here is more advanced. It is open water and deep as well. This site is one of the few places in the world that has purple hydocoral. Also, there are usually torpedo rays here. Torpedo rays you need to stay your distance as their defense mechanism is that they produce electricity. They produce enough electricity when startled to stop your heart. Not a good thing when you are done over 100 feet.
Here are a couple pics of torpedo rays:
