Photographing Your Monster

I stumbled on this great UK article where a photographer used mini figurines to bring their nano tank to life. One of the cutest things about angler fish is when they use their little lures to fish ... I think this picture is brilliant. Below is a collage of our anglers playing around angler eggs! (They are under the red one... Looks like a smoke swirl).


Above is Victor's tank as of April 2014. We tried Brazilian anglers, who use a worm lure. Sadly, they had a bacterial infection we are still treating. That's the luck of getting wild fish ... They can carry disease. Most big time aquarist have quarantine tanks for first few weeks of getting a new fish ... It's an option we are looking into. As you can see the coral is flourishing ... Thought it would be neat to show bubble coral eating - it reminds me of Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors.

Company: [singing] Hold your hat and hang on to your soul/Something's coming to eat the world whole/If we fight it, we've still got a chance/But whatever they offer you/Though they're slopping the trough for you/Please whatever they offer you/Don't feed the plants!/Don't feed the plants!
