Whether it’s the colors you like, the symbiotic relationships or the enjoyment of implementing cutting edge technology- there is something for everyone. Look at your fish.... learn from them! Their sense of community is something we should emulate. Notice how they learn to work with and around each other (for the most part). They do this for their own survival. As a species, we’re so good at surviving that we are detached from basic communal instincts and therefore it’s easy to get wrapped up in pettiness.

      Now exhale- what a great time to be alive and human! We are ushering in an era where coral is no longer going to be found in the wild- take that in for a second....there are bigger things we should be focused on as hobbyists. Let’s at least learn from the creatures we keep.... both the algae & the animal can not survive without working with each other... if 2 different species can do it, certainly 2 hobbyists can.
      Well done bro! very well put.
