  1. That thing is really cool. Ok, stupid question, I’m completely new to this blog but was wondering if any advice/information for coral was ever here? I’m a saltwater hobbyist and am always looking for fellow reefers.

  2. Welcome Richard. There’s not a lot of advice about saltwater aquaria here, I’m afraid. We’re field biologists studying deep-sea habitats. Hope you’ll stick around, though.
