THE RISE OF THE GREEN MACHINE.
Today we go green.
This green bubble coral Plerogyra, is one of the nicest ones I`ve ever seen. It is one of my very first corals & it is probably as big as any one of these would ever be. This one, fully extended is about 14 inches long by 10 inches wide. The bubbles are actually tentacles, that deflate at night, when they look more like tentacles as one would imagine them to look like.
The beauty next to the bubble, is a Hawkfish, Cirrhitichthys falco Randall, 1963.
This fish I`ve also had since the Bubble coral.
It is very fast & perches on it`s pectoral fins, anywhere it feels like it can scan the area, always ready to swoop on an unsuspecting prey.
The show attached to this image or the same one one on Planet Earth, is a collection of images that might blow your socks off.
The Green Machine is featured.
Please indulge yourselves & have a great end of the week.
Look out for your neighbors welfare. It`s free.
