This photo shows a beautiful Purple Ribbon Gorgonian (AKA Sea Fan or Sea Whip) in one of our saltwater reef aquariums. A Gorgonian is similar to a coral, but it is classified as a different marine species. They are found all throughout the world but are particularly abundant in the shallow waters of the islands in the Caribbean Sea and Bermuda..

Bird’s Nest Coral

Spring is here, and we can already hear birds chirping away in the trees as they begin to make new nests to replace their damaged or lost ones from the Winter...but there's another type of bird's nest that lasts all year round, and grows more beautiful with each passing day. We are referring to the "Bird's Nest Coral" found throughout the reefs.
