The Ogre in the Live Rock :)

I was photographing my tank and new fish tonight when I ended up getting a good laugh. The arrangement of the largest section of LR in the middle of the tank caught some shadows just right and a face jumped out at me.

Maybe it's just me (and this is a lot like seeing shapes in clouds), but I swear it looks like some craggy old man scowling at me.

Trust me, this was NOT intentional placement of the rock...

P.S. Fortunately, this is not going to be one of those "Man Sees Virgin Mary In Fishtank" situations that ends up on the front of a tabloid.

That's pretty funny. We had a piece of rock, when place the right way in the tank looked like a skull. That rock got spun right quick! Should have taken a picture of it, but we were sufficiently eeked out by it that we spun it before even taking a second thought!

I was trying to arrange some new pieces of LR last week and it kept looking like "Blue" from "Blues Clues" Most frustrating ...
You know you are a true fish-o-holic if you can field strip any powerhead on the market.

Thats funny! My mom once said it looked like there as a man in the LR in my tank. I called her crazy and walked away
