We are pleased to present to you this fabulous reef aquarium created by Ali Atapour of Amazing Aquariums and Reefs in Orange CA. The aquarium incorporates many visually pleasing and aesthetic features such as trimless starphire glass tank, open top, inconscpicuous equipment and a selection of fish and corals which together make for a very soothing display. Although the aquarium design is high end, the fish are very common tobacco basslets (Serranus tortugarum) and the corals are all “off the shelf” species which can commonly found at the most mundane LFS such as Xenia, Fungia, Sinularia and Frogspawn corals. Enjoy the video and be sure to swing by Ali’s boutique store if you are in the SoCal area.
