First, I want to compliment you on the wonderful work that you do. I would be interested in an article (or series) that delved deeply into reef zonation and the animals that occupy each of these zones. I believe that I am like many hobbyists. I have a general idea of physical parameters of the zones and the animals that are likely to be found there, but have no idea what those zones actually look like in the wild. Most photographs are macro shots of single individuals. It is difficult tell what the neighbor hood looks like. I am sick of coral gardening and would like to make a more realistic attempt at creating a small ecosystem.
