An American Reefkeeper in China

By Leonard Ho - Posted May 19, 2014 08:00 AM
It's always enlightening to see what our hobby is like in other parts of the world, but sometimes cultural or language barriers make it difficult to understand and relate. Matt Galat is an American expat working - and reefkeeping - in Ningbo, China. He's started a video series showing Western aquarists what it's like to keep reef tanks in China.

Matt is a professional TV producer so his videos are very high quality.  He's also an extremely personable host as he shares his personal experiences about reefkeeping (and driving an automobile Wink) in China.

Matt plans a total of five to ten videos for this series.  Here are his first two episodes.  In the first episode, Matt introduces himself and talks about the construction of his office and its 40x40x30" 200 gallon reef tank.  In the second episode, Matt visits two Chinese LFS and takes home some corals and fish to his office tank as well as his home tank.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
