When new to looking for them, it's usually very difficult, so you will depends on the guides/spotter to show them to you. After you have seen them for a couple of times, you will know where and how to look for them :D, which is not too difficult as they tends to stay in the same host seaman for a long time, unless disturbed/harassed.
Fantastic Albert. How do you spot these tiny creatures! Well done and belated congrats.
