About six months ago some comments held our feet to the fire when we called Evan Tsang’s (bonbon) brand new reef tank a “Masterpiece in the Making“. Then two months ago we revisited Bon’s Lagoon with a video of the reef system in its fourth month of operation. Well just last week the ZeoCrew over at Zeovit selected Bon’s Lagoon as their second Dream Tank of the Quarter, a quarterly aquarium competition for reef tanks running on a nutrient and mineral replenishment based on the Zeovit system. We hate to say we told you so, but we will! When a system exhibits the level of detail that this reef did from day one, there is some level of assurance that a certain level of experience and effort will be invested in the rest of the reef aquarium system, both in time, money and effort.
What particularly draws our eye to this tank is the no-scape concept where there is a real minimum of live rock yet the corals are arranged into an attractive and natural looking bommie. Less rock means more flow and more flow means a cleaner tank and healthier corals. There is room to dog on the visibility of the equipment but if you are a reef tech lover, you could do much worse than some clean and symmetrically paced Vortech pumps, Moceans and LED Cannons. Congratulations to Evan Tsang on a job well done and for the full rundown of the details of Evan’s award-winning reef system, check out the DTOQ page on Zeovit.
