Reefkeeping España

By Leonard Ho - Posted Nov 15, 2012 08:00 AM
There's something about this reef aquarium video from Spain that simply makes us happy (it's definitely not the video quality). Between the mix of healthy soft and stony corals, active fish full of personality (complete with handfeeding), and the upbeat soundtrack, we're reminded why reefkeeping rocks.

This two year old reef aquarium is only 320 liters (85 gallons) but appears much larger thanks to its aquascaping.  Large corals corals populate both the foreground and background, with layers of stony coral colonies "sloped" in between; The sum of this aquarist's aquascaping effort is a convincing illusion of depth and perspective.

Here are the few details we found:

  • 6x54 watt ATI T5 fluorescent lighting
  • Calcium Reactor
  • Ozonizer
  • Deltec 2060 protein skimmer
  • Ecotech Marine Vortech MP40 and Tunze Nano Stream

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.
