Getting up close and personal with our corals...

You already know when you look in a fish tank there are bound to be fishies.
If you are into this hobby, or have taken a gander at our Tank Tour tab up there, then you know that you can also find corals in saltwater tanks.

Tim and I…we are coral people.
We love our fishies, but we LUUURVE our corals.

I look at corals like the furniture of the tank.  You can add pretty curtains, move the modern sofa, and refinish the coffee table.  Maybe that is why I love this hobby so much.  I not only get to decorate my home…now I get to fuss over a fish tank too.  It all makes sense now.

Tim looks at corals like art.  Which is why he took these photos.  Secretly.
Seriously, I didn’t even know he took these.  I wonder what else he is doing secretly, hopefully wrapping presents and baking cookies.

I just found them on our hard drive….and now I want to share them.
Maybe after seeing these you will be coral peoples too.

Pretty as a peach right?  An underwater peach?

A lot of people don’t realize that when you go to aquariums, they generally use coral inserts because the maintenance is really low.
Even on the show Tanked, they rarely use live corals.

I can’t keep a plant alive to save my life, but coral growing….that’s my jam.  Not to mention, you can score deals on corals all over the place.
Then I feel all thrifty and smart.

Are you converted?  Do you lurrrve the corals?
Or will the fishies always have your heart?
