If mondays are great occasion for exciting stories, edge of your seat kind of stories then it seems suitable to go out on Friday with something more mellow, such as this tranquil clip of the Ribbon Reefs. What we particularly like about the video of this particularly pristine area of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is the large, well developed colonies of many soft and stony corals.
Aquarists like to brag that a certain ‘mother colony’ is an unmanageable 18 to 24 inches in diameter, but as this video shows many coral colonies begin to show secondary and tertiary characteristics of that particular species. No matter how big the reef tank, a dive through of the Ribbon Reefs on the GBR is a sure fire way to appreciate fields of diverse coral assemblies.
