Shallow reef tank makes most of limited stature

By Leonard Ho - Posted Apr 26, 2016 09:00 AM
Here is a beautifully layered captive reef , all within what amounts to not more than a puddle of water. This month, this Dutch aquarium celebrates its 2 year anniversary; it's matured gracefully.

We love the diverse of "localized" assemblages of diverse coral types that all combine together for one very convincing, natural reef exhibit.  The aquarium also features an excellent and extensive selection of nano fish (mainly gobies and cardinals) who are most appropriate for a tank of this type.  So much life is such a shallow container of seawater ... the whole seven minute video is a joy to watch.
