Reefkeeping Portuguesa

By Leonard Ho - Posted Nov 19, 2012 07:00 AM
A few days ago, we shared a video of a lovely reef aquarium from Spain. Their neighbor demands equal representation, so this week we showcase a video of a Portuguese reef.

Aquarist Marco Barbosa is aiming to create a wall of corals ... quite literally.  He's affixed zoanthids, xenias, et. al. to his back glass; In a few short months, his cube reef display should be wall-to-wall corals.

If this Portuguese and last week's Spanish reef videos are any indication, Western Europeans enjoy creating mixed reef aquariums stocked with a balance of soft and stony corals.

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.
