Inspiration Avenue challenge – Tropical

Inspiration Avenue challenge this week is TROPICAL

Now tropical colors are not my general palette but my dad raises  Coral and tropical fish and runs a research foundation that studies the self sustaining propagation of Coral.  These are photos from his tanks that I ran through very simple photo shop programs.  I think they are fun.

A word about Clown fish, people think they need Sea Anemones to flourish, not true at all, in fact if you know anyone with a tank that has ever had a clown fish they will tell you they love soft coral, they even love over turned flower pots.  And anyone who has ever had a Sea Anemone will tell you they tend to be much more trouble than they are worth by far… they move around the tank and if they die they are so toxic they will kill your tank off quickly.   To learn more about Coral and Clown fish in captivity check out GARF.ORG
