Because of the great geological separation, coral reefs of the Western Indian Ocean may look different than those of the Pacific, which aquarists are more familiar with. While the biodiversity is not as high as that of the Indo and South Pacific, Indian Ocean is still a tropical wonderland. In the second half of the video, we are treated to outstanding footage of underwater life at the base of a mangrove forest.
This video is shot and produced by Dan Beecham.
The Destination Reefs video series showcases the diversity of coral reefs around the world. Through these high quality videos, Advanced Aquarist hopes we can all gain a greater appreciation of reef life beyond our glass boxes. Our world is truly a wondrous place!
