By James W. Fatherree on Sep 03, 2014 at 09:00 AM

Here's a look at my 125 gallon mixed-reef aquarium. It's not the biggest, fanciest, most colorful, high-tech reef aquarium for sure, but I'm proud of it and want to share what's in it, how it works, and how I take care of it. The details will come, but for now I want to point out that there are several things about it that could be considered unusual by many hobbyists' standards, too.

Feature Aquarium: Bryn Roberts' 360-gallon reef aquarium

By Bryn Roberts on Apr 24, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Feature Aquarium: The 246 Gallon Reef Aquarium of Sonny Harajly

By Sonny Harajly on Apr 27, 2011 at 10:00 AM

When designing this aquarium, I had openness and negative space as my top priority. This aesthetically looks better, and allows for a more natural and pleasant display. All too often reefers are quick to stack massive amounts of rock and corals into an aquarium. This in turn gives the display the appearance of a fruit stand, and it is much too cluttered and busy. By allowing the corals a large area to grow, you will be rewarded with natural growth patterns and a better looking display.

Feature Aquarium: EcoReef One: A New Kind of Nano Reef

By Jake Adams on Apr 14, 2010 at 08:00 PM

The description of this tanks sounds like a list of things not to do when setting up a reef tank: it has no live rock, no live sand, minimal filtration, no additives, the water is never tested, 100% water changes and yet this 5 gallon glass box is one of the most attractive, successful and least demanding reef tanks that I have ever set up.
