coral growth vessels for transport and production

Postby hypergraphicreef » Tue Nov 03, 2009 3:11 pm

I like to post these on science boards because they generate good discussion, doubts and detractors...the fact is they work and there are no others like them in the world, so this is unique biology to say the least. These are the smallest true reef tanks in the world, hope you enjoy a litle ten minute show of my casa. If I had a dime for every coral expert who doubted :) lol...

and by transport I mean literally. these are taken to different colleges in west texas and schools, public displays to bring awareness to marine biology and conservation efforts.

Computer fish tanks.

It is really fascinating how nature works sometimes, as you have speculated.
