Staghorn Fields Forever

By Leonard Ho - Posted May 31, 2012 09:00 AM
On the morning of October 8, 2006, Bruce Carlson dived Kisan, Soloman Islands. Carried by a strong current, he recorded incredible footage of a seemingly endless Acropora thicket. 100% coral coverage is a beautiful thing.

Dr. Bruce Carlson is a former director of Waikiki Aquarium and current science officer at the Georgia Aquarium.  He says in his video description: "I eventually veered to the left to get out of the current before it swept me off the island but I could see that the coral bed extended well beyond where I left off."  Simply awesome!

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
