  1. I love it when they’re small and have small chromatophore patches. So cute and pretty!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
