A magnificent 660 gallon mixed reef

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jul 02, 2013 10:00 AM
This is Dormero Rotes Ross vibrant reef aquarium stocked with seemingly every type of coral and fish under the sea. The aquarium is dominated by soft corals but also includes SPS, LPS, polyps, mushrooms, azoox corals, and gorgonians in addition to countless reef fish. Oh yeah, it's also home to two large eels.

Yep. That's a large moray eel in the reef.

Yes; The video is a bit grainy (even in 1080 HD) and overly saturated, but this reef tank is undeniably beautiful and brimming with all sorts of life. Soft corals and fishes add dynamic movement to the display while the other invertebrates add structure and color.

And then there's the two impressive large moray eels that you don't often see in coral reef aquariums.  It's really cool to see them naturally glide their way through the reef.  Hopefully the eels (especially the large zebra moray) don't make fast meals of the small fish in the tank.
