Whoa!! That's an awesome piece!!

However, it's fish and inverts this month Mindy :-). I know corals are technically inverts too but for the sake of simplicity I'd like to omit corals this month since last month was coral centric. Thanks :-)

Thanks for the suggestion.

I recently just found out that the green clown goby helps keep corals cleared from algae. This is just some neat info to go along with the photo.

http://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/when-attacked-corals-send-out-chemical-signals-to-recruit-bodyguard-fish-115253278/?no-ist

"Hay and Dixson placed turtle weed on small staghorn coral (Acropora nasuta (http://eol.org/pages/1016100/overview)), a common reef-building coral found in the Pacific and Indian oceans, while in the presence of two goby species. The gobies cleaned up quickly: Within three days, 30% of the turtle weed was gone, and coral bleaching dropped by 70-80% compared to a goby-less seaweed invasion."

Thanks. Let's try again. I'm using Microsoft Onedrive Cloud storage and they don't make it easy.

brought to memory of a spring hike up some winding trail and at end of trail a green grass-covered knoll awaits your weary feet to sink into

Ohhh sure...you let anemones in on the coral subject because they are coralimorphs, but you don't let corals in on a fish an invert subject even though corals are inverts too...that makes sense, yup.

Oops! Sorry Mindy. I must have mad a mistake somewhere. It wasn't supposed to make any sense whatsoever. My bad!
