Are you a reef tank rock star?

Over the last 40 years of our involvement in this hobby we have found that hobbyists sharing their experiences with other hobbyists is one of the very best ways to learn how to be more successful. In an effort to promote greater reefkeeping knowledge and sharing of information between hobbyists we are providing this valuable forum for your free use. Please submit a photo of your tank and provide the details of your set up along with any helpful hints you would like to pass on to fellow reefkeepers and get a free frag on your next order!

Test your water parameters often. Do not completely rely on the dosage recommended on the bottle. You may need to increase the amounts depending on your bioload. There is no standard dose since each tank is different.

Love saltwater. Been in it for 15 years or so. Been blessed with a 'green thumb' for this hobby. I irritate friends because I have and use no test kits at all. Kits would be helpful in maintaining parameters 'just so' but would probably cause me to fret and be testing all the time :o) Also do not have any challenging corals. Cheers to all others who enjoy this the way I do.

Lighting: LED
Filtration: Zeovit

I am in the process of converting this tank over to a ULNS. I want this approach, as it will allow the removal of the refugium and miracle mud, offering a clean and easy maintenance sump. With the high fish load, ULNS is a good choice for constantly cycling nutrients in the water.

The proper reef salt salt and a quality RO/DI system & filters, go a long way in maintaining a reef tank. Quality testing kits, along with frequent monitoring of water parameters, can make the difference too. Keep a tank log so you can track your tanks health and notice fluctuations early on.

I've been in the hobby for almost a decade now. I'm completely addicted and Love spending my free time staring at my accomplishment. I created the aquascape myself using a 3:1 ratio of dry rock to live rock, then drilled and attached the rock to egg crate I had shaped to form a reef outcropping. I then used pond foam to fill in some of the cracks making sure to leave tunnels and holes. I built my aquarium from the ground up. It's been about 6 months up now after having had it down for a year while I was deployed to Afghanistan. it's doing great!! 80 or more of my coral has come from Pacific East Aquaculture.

Filtration: Sump with Reef Octopus skimmer, BRS calcium and GFO reactor

This is a build-up from a 20g nano tank. I drilled the tank myself and installed a BeanAnimal overflow system with an acrylic box I designed and fabricated. The corals are nearly outgrowing the tank at this point, especially my frogspawn and a recently added colt coral. My fish and inverts love it, and with weekly water changes, the tank is healthy and strong.
