"What would happen if...?" has always been a staple of Science Fiction. What do you wonder about?

I'm working on a book that concerns civilizations built by marine animals such as crustaceans, cephalopods, fish, and the like. What sort of cities could/would(?) they erect on the sea floor? I did, of course, have a few ideas;
- Cyclopean cities of coral buildings
- Cities of rust-proof metal powered by electricity-producing fish that pump electric pulses through water filled cables
- Organic cities of living technology made from selectively bred/genetically engineered organisms
Anyone else got any other ideas to squeeze in?
What sort of beings do you suppose would make these cities? How would react if they knew that a submarine of ours was approaching their city? What if they had telepathy?
