April 2015 Saltwater POTM

This months them is "inspiration". Share any photo that you have taken of something in your tank that has inspired you! Whether it be coral, fish, inverts, algae, or any of the other multitude of things. We've all seen things in our tanks that are inspiring and make us fall in love with this hobby all over again. Show us what makes you love this hobby! Good luck everyone!

The Rules

Photos must be uploaded to your photo album and the bbcode link posted in the thread. A brief description of your photo may be included. Albums are found in your profile in the right hand column. If you need assistance uploading to an album, please PM an Aquarium Advice site team member (mod/admin), and they can walk you through it. Once uploaded, you can link directly in the contest thread here using IMG tags.

One photo per member per month allowed, and the photo MUST be taken by you.

I will select the winner of the contest based on the quality of the photograph and how closely it relates to the theme this month . The winner will copy and paste this section to a new thread, where they will decide the theme of next months contest. Submissions will be accepted until the last day of the month. The winner will be announced on the first day next month.

So many inspiring things in this hobby I really don't know where to begin. Just to be able to keep such wonderful creatures alive in their own little world that we provide and maintain for them is inspiring enough to me. I am especially grateful to have had success with keeping a pair of Ruby Red Dragonets thriving in my 40 gallon reef tank which are thoroughly enjoyed daily. Here is a shot of my female saying 'hi' to the camera.

The darting personality, along with the delicate details and colors, of this beatiful fish have inspired me to try to be a stealthier photographer

All of the pictures are amazing and help to show how many things can help to inspire us in this hobby. In all honesty all on the things pictured have been inspiratons to me for my tanks at one point or another. Even though i wish everyone could win there can be only one so here goes...

The winner is.....(drum roll)..... Sand Dollar! That is an absolutely gorgeous Firefish and the bright vibrant colors of SW fish are a huge reason people are initially drawn into the salty world. Congratulations Sand Dollar!

Thanks everyone! All of the pictures are beautiful. I'm so glad to have gotten into saltwater, the variety and uniqueness of all of the creatures we are able to keep and enjoy in our own little ocean is inspiring. I'll get the new POTM for May up soon.
