Solar Power

Sunlight coming in from the Academy's central square cast beautiful rays on the massive viewing pane of the Philippine Coral Reef. Solar energy powers the whole reef ecosystem. Algae is eaten by small invertebrates and herbivorous fish which are then eaten by carnivorous which expel nutrients which is then used up by the algae again. It's the circle of reef life!
