    I love the colors of your soft magenta and violet/pink Fungias, and the peach blushed Blastos. :D

    That proves the fact that guys are more often color blind than women.

    While I wouldn't say Ian's blastos look red, they do have that look of being really oversaturated in the photo type of red. Which I guess is gold & orange? :D

    Food for thought whilst not arguing the color blindless thing at all...

    What about monitor color calibration. Its amazing how off some monitors are.

    I knew a woman who was completely colorblind. She only saw black/white and shades of gray. She was the wife of my Evolution professor in college. He used to say that he wanted to propagate genetic anomalies in the population. His 3 daughters used to tease their mom by saying, "get the red bowl, no the blue one Mom".

    Love the black substrate. Makes colors pop and, since the eye is lazy and gravitates towards white, the dark background makes eyes focus on corals. Very cool.

    Ian, do plates and chalices encrust on to your barebottom? Wondering what your strategy is with all those corals on the bottom and how you handle that.

    Lovely collection as usual... It's even better in person. :)
