Fluorescence in corals and other reef organisms is a great source of wonder and attraction for hobbyists. With little effort or expense, we can stimulate and observe some of the most magnificent sights to be seen under the surface of the ocean. With typical aquarium (blue actinic) lights and consumer camera equipment, you can see and record magnificent fluorescence. And for a small investment in specialized lights, filters and lenses, such as those offered by fluorescence researcher Dr. Charles Mazel, an even greater world of colors can be revealed!

Enjoy, my friends.
