Monster in Hiding

OUR NEWEST FROGFISH HIDING IN OUR ELEGANCE CORAL
love our salt water aquariums; they are more than underwater gardens, they are secret doorways to hidden worlds. You see animal behavior you can't believe - like our anglers literally holding hands when they feel threatened, our rock skipper's colors changing for no apparent reason at all, our corals dancing in the current, and our clownfish hunting live guppies and feeding them to its host bubble tip anemone.

Salt aquariums force you to work through complex problems, and research constantly. You also learn patience and flexibility; for example, you could spend hours setting up your rocks perfectly only for an urchin or hermit crab to rearrange things in 2 min. Every day there is something new to discover ... it's a living hobby that brings me joy and wonder every day.
