Destination Reefs: Cordelia Banks [video]

With 52 Hectares of dense stoney coral growth, Cordelia Banks at Roatan Island is home to the largest patch of Acropora cervicornis on the Meso-American Reef.  While the biodiversity here is dwarfed by the Philippines, the density of reef building corals and fish is impressive and provides us a benchmark for what Atlantic coral reefs can look like.

    I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
