Great Example of a Macro Reef

Post by Hero on October 4th 2009, 7:30 pm

Most of you have already seen these but they are simply captivating. The key is to make the aquarium look natural and not like a cluttered mess of algae.

There's this floating warf a few hours away from where I live. It's basically macro-algea heaven. I could probably create something like that using what I find there. (skulpins, flounders, some small (3" max) black fish and large brown fish I can't identify.

I'm not allowed another tank until my birthday next year, however I don't have anything currently in my tank so I could always change plans. I'm just not sure what I want right now.

I don't know if there's an actual company that sells it, however other people you meet on forums, for example, could probably ship to you.

...Or you could just go collect it yourself.

Check the link froglover. He collected all his stuff from the ocean. But you would have to find someone to ship to you...maybe brent since he also lives in canada.

Really? Thats great that temperate reefs are making their way into the aquarium world finally. Even liveaquaria is starting to supply temperate livestock and they are aware of it to because they label it as sub-tropical.

Yeah. He found another apartment and couldn't take all the stuff with him. But he did release it all into the ocean which is a plus.
