Abstract: Humans discard a variety of trash that becomes incorporated into the marine environment. On coral reefs, discarded glass bottles and jars develop visible biofilms within 24 hours and are also colonized quickly both by fouling and mobile organisms. A series of fore reef, reef, and back reef sites were used during a threeweek study at Cayos Cochinos, Honduras to examine glass bottle and jar colonization. The bottles and jars served as shelters, parts of territories for reef organisms, and also as foraging sites. Observations showed that behaviors occurring naturally on the reef were consistently mimicked with the artificial substrate, demonstrating successful incorporation into the coral reef. Within three weeks what is typically considered discarded marine debris became an integral part of the habitat on this reef.
