Come on Mindy - your loyal subjects are waiting for your subject although we hope it's not too subjective. :biggrin:

Subjective is good, but 'reef related' would probably be better

Haha!! Ok, the subject is "Squatters! ". Critters that are "in" something. Try to be more creative than anemones and Clownfish. :p

It took me this long to talk Tapatalk into posting this for me - I'm not at home. :)

.....What about a pair of clownfish "squatting" in an anemone that is "squatting" in a clam shell? ;) .....

Some dandys for this month. This will be my first submission for potm and the picture is from a few years back. Such a cool idea for a theme from Mindy though & I have something that qualifies. Out of focus & hair algae all over, but here it is FWIW.

A small blue legged hermy squatting (more like hitching a ride) on a huge white spot hermy. The "squat" wasn't all that long, but what the hey, it was what it was. The white spot is long gone. Although it was the greatest sand sifter I ever had, it grew too large and when it wasn't sifting sand, it was a roaming wrecking machine. I returned it to the LFS. Besides the havoc it was wreaking in my tank, it was getting difficult finding large enough shells for it to grow into!

This clown is literally "squatting" on my brain coral.

They love how soft and fluffy the brain coral is and literally "squat" on it to sleep.

They love to "squat" on the brain and wait to get fed.
