ECLS Reefer posted a topic in Large Reef JournalsAccording to Greek mythology, the Garden of the Hesperides was owned by the goddess Hera, the wife of Zeus. The Hesperides were nymphs that lived within the garden and tended it for Hera. They helped maintain the tree of golden apples said to give immortal life to anyone to ate of them. I don't have a garden full of nymphs but I could consider my fish to be little nymphs tending their own garden of special apples, which if all goes according to plan will grow for a very very long time.
