One of our White Porcelain Crabs filtering away while hanging out in a bubble-tip anenome! Probably the most interesting thing about these crabs is their maxillipeds (The Fan-like appendage), which they use to filter foods right out of the water column!
Stand is starting to come along nicely!

The Yorke Peninsula Shellfish Reef is the first shellfish restoration reef of its kind in South Australia and will contribute to a healthier marine environment and improved recreational fishing opportunities. The four-hectare site was constructed by Maritime Constructions, using 60 custom made concrete structures and more than 800 tonnes of limestone. The reef will open to recreational fishers in late August.
Just a quick video of one of our coral beds.

This is one of the freshwater grow tanks for plants at the shop. We have several species of plants in this tank atm, however once the other plant tanks are ready, we will most likely keep 3-5 species of plants per tank. This tank does have livestock, currently we have 6 German Blue Rams (We will be breeding these) as well as 2 Zebra Loaches. Suspended above the tank is a 30W 6000-7000K LED

Massachusetts Maritime Academy underwater mapping of a northern coral reef. Called cup or stone coral - often cited as Astrangia danae - it is now classified as Astrangia poculata. The high flows that feed the reef cause this turbidity. It is a 'reef' as in a challenge to navigation. They do not build coral "reefs" - just round cups.

In preparation for a move into a new aquarium setup, I've brought my Black Ice Snowflake Clowns into Maritime Reef to hang out for a few weeks while I get everything ready to go in the new tank setup. Eventually, we do intend to breed this pair, but not until we have our clownfish breeding program up and running and stable. Our goal is to make these outstanding clownfish more accesible to other salt water tank fans.
The Cropp family explores sunken ships lost on the reefs of Australia during its long maritime history. The Great Barrier Reef is littered with cannon, anchors and chain that mark the graves of these old ships. The islands and coastline provided a shortlived safe haven for the castaways before they met their fate at the hand of the native headhunters. Diving for treasure - port holes and sunken ships in precarious places - in the surf on the reef and in treacherous currents, and bringing them back to the Shipwreck Museum in Port Douglas.
Cuba is a tropical paradise. It is the largest and yet least known island in the Caribbean. In recent years it has become famous for its old American cars, Fidel Castro's brand of communism, cigars and rum. Millions of tourists visit each year to enjoy the tropical climate and the wonderful beaches and warm seas.But there is another Cuba, the little known wildlife of this Caribbean island. Over half the plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth. Over 80% of the reptiles and amphibians are uniquely Cuban. They include the smallest four-legged animal on earth and the world's most aggressive crocodile. This programme looks at these little known creatures and investigates how they arrived on Cuba and when?The Story starts in the Caribbean Sea. Cuba has many unspoilt reefs that team wi...
In 1999, New York Times journalist Nicholas D. Kristof reported a surprising encounter on a tiny African island called Pate, just off the coast of Kenya. Here, in a village of stone huts set amongst dense mangrove trees, Kristof met a number of elderly men who told him that they were descendants of Chinese sailors, shipwrecked on Pate many centuries ago. Their ancestors had traded with the local Africans, who had given them giraffes to take back to China; then their boat was driven onto the nearby reef. Kristof noted many clues that seemed to confirm the islanders' tale, including their vaguely Asian appearance and the presence of antique porcelain heirlooms in their homes.

Dr. Hans Van Tilburg has taught university courses in world and maritime history, edited readers and proceedings, and authored reports, chapters, articles and book reviews, as well as several books. He is currently the maritime heritage coordinator for the Maritime Heritage Program in the Pacific Islands region, and the unit diving supervisor for NOAA’s National Ocean Service in Hawai`i. The beaches of Maui’s southern coastline, from Mā`alaea Harbor to `Āhihi Bay, saw intensive training activity during World War II. Much of this activity centered on amphibious operations. That legacy exists today in submerged vessel and aircraft wrecks, historic properties as well as recreational diving sites and habitat for marine species.

A Dive into History Alfred Merlin was digging for Roman remains in Tunisia in 1907 when sponge-divers identified mysterious remains – stone columns, just off-shore in the Mediterranean. Was this the legendary lost city of Atlantis? But when beautifully-crafted Roman works of art were salvaged from the site Merlin, came to an even more intriguing conclusion: these were the remains of a Roman shipwreck. The Mediterranean, he knew, was the super-highway of the ancient world – water was the only efficient way to transport heavy goods quickly throughout the Empire. And when greedy traders overloaded their ships, the resulting disasters left behind a gift for archaeologists two thousand years later. Understand where the ships were going and what they were taking, and you could decode the whole ...
