CORAL Video: Amazing FOWLR Reef

22 Feb, 2014

Almost a thing of the past, a fish-dominated marine aquarium with no corals or ornamental invertebrates is a rarity these days, but Reefbuilders’ videographer Jake Adams finds an outstanding exception in the home of Chris Campbell of Highlands, Colorado.

Here’s a jaw-dropping assemblage of Conspicillatus, Bandit, True Personifer, and Cortez Angelfishes, Wrought Iron and Declivis Butterflyfishes, and too many others—including a fat, bold and sassy Moorish Idol— to count in two minutes.
