Year-long time-lasped reef aquarium video

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jun 06, 2012 08:00 AM
Youtube member 'olesful' shares a very cool video recording 365 days of time-lapsed photography of his reef aquarium. Every frame is shot in the same perspective at the same time each day for one full year.

The video shows the growth of corals shortly after the aquarium's start date circa April 2011.  It also proves the reefkeeping adage: "Xenias grow like weeds!"  After multiple prunings throughout the year, the Xenia keep growing back with a vengeance.  Green star polyps and birdsnest corals do their best to keep pace.
