    Really liked this, if I lived near a dilapidated reef I would definitely invest my "hobby energy" into something like that! Much cheaper as well!

    Thanks, that was an awesome video. Very interesting and some awesome corals in the pics. Great time lapsed vids as well, as it shows the growth quite nicely. I must admit I wouldn't mind working on a project like that here in Durban (if they ever had one). Imagine being part of a large project to re-colonise a section of reef or create a new reef area. That way you'll get to dive with all the fish the reef attracts whilst still doing what we enjoy.
    Thanks again for the video

    Pretty wicked. Great vid, Shot Riaan. I totally concur with Honda. Building our own reefs would be an amazing project into marine conservation. How great would it be to have shallow tropical reefs for snorkeling.

    Hi Ben, Sodwana would be the best place for a project like this. I hope you get some feedback from them. I am going up in 2 weeks and honestly can't wait to see some awesome living reefs in action. Imagine being able to snorkel a complete bay of coral to this affect and what positive impact it would have on the ecosystem.
    Great idea and please post any feedback you get.

    Cheers
