Although some people might pigeon-hole James Fatheree into being the Giant Clam guy, James is showing some new colors by writing a great article on a classic reef aquarium animal, the bubble corals. We’ve always had quite a lot of regard for Plerogyra and Physogyra which can make an impressive bouquet of photosynthetic bubbles and which actually prefer a low energy placement in a reef aquarium. It’s so refreshing to see some advanced perspective giving a perennial favorite the kind of scrutiny that has been lavished on Challices, Acans, Lords ‘n Scolies. One of our greatest hopes is that all of the resurgence in the popularity of LPS will trickle some love over to other awesome coral groups like Euphyllias, Bubbles, Elegance, Lobos, Manicinas; they’re widely available, easy to keep and so so cheap. Who’s with us?
