This shallow reef tank makes up in vibrant life what it lacks in height

This is the large shallow reef tank of Norwegian aquarist, Howard. The aquarium measures 150x100x40 cm (60x40x15.5 inches) and is lit by four Aquabeam LED fixtures. His captive reef brims with corals and fish, and we have video to prove it.

Howard has a personal video blog (  where you can see more of his numerous and very creative marine aquariums such as his other zoa, shroom, and LPS "TMC" tank seen below.  Howard's passion for reefkeeping is undeniable.  Great work, Howard!

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.
