As originally posted by RigDvr...

The web site www.towersoflife.com is incredible. Maybe I just need to get of this island more often, but I didn't ever give any thought to the diversity of marine life that is living on and around oil rigs. We don't have oil rigs here in Hawaii, out of sight out of mind. But we do have some fish in common with the Atlantic.

One of the scrolling fish pics on the 'towers' page is of Sergent Major Damsels. They are not uncommon here, and I suspect they are very common in the Gulf too. I've been shooting video of them while they lay their eggs in a criss cross pattern on rocks. The long nose butterflies make a chirping sound when they eat the eggs of the Sergents. Very exciting to hear and to watch. (well, to me it is exciting)

If you haven't seen the "Towers of Life" web site before then check it out. This would be an incredible waste of manmade reef if they were to be removed.

Does anyone else know of a web site or two that is of interest? Please share it. And thank you RigDvr for posting "Towers of Life".

I really like the towers-of-life idea. Seems they could be expanded as well, tree-like with branches, for more sea life space. Better than rubber reefs, concrete spheres, old cars IMO.
