As a hobby that loves and appreciates live corals, all of which originate from wild coral reefs, I don’t think we are nearly in touch with what wild corals are really like. To bridge this gap we try and travel to unique reef destinations to document both the reef ecosystem as a whole, and individual coral colonies.
Today’s spotlight comes from Palau where we were fortunate enough to visit Biota Palau, see how Coral Beauty Angelfish are Made, and visit the world’s first and oldest Giant Clam Farm. We made one video of our excursion to the Nikko Bay but today’s feature brings some individual corals into a single frame.
When someone says they have a ‘mother colony’ of X coral, just remember that most wild corals are bigger than your entire reef aquarium! If you like seeing ‘aquaristic’ photographs of wild corals do be sure and check out our previous post highlighting some of Palau’s Cryptic Corals.
