                        The blob fish is my fav. Looks like a human face. Makes you wonder about evolution.

                            What really gets me is the Bamboo Coral

                            Is it a coral, or some type of gorgonian??? Definately somethin I have never seen
                            Proud owner of an Elegance Coral "that lived". (It is thriving whith long tentacle tips...purchased in January 2005.) It has white tentacle tips, I beleive this has something to do with ones that will typically live due to the collection site.
