On the science channel there is a popular show called “How it’s made”. The show which has been running for some time now investigate popular gadgets or products and tell us (the audience) how these nifty products are made. For whatever reason the show’s producers decided to do a snippet on reef aquariums or more specifically how the home reef aquarium is “made”.
Most of us know the facts, the usual rock, sand, sump, protein skimmer and the like but props to the show for not using a ridiculous amount of rock. Catch the full video below; reef aquariums are located in the middle of the video right after “space pens”. Did you know you can write underwater with space pens?
Update: It looks like Youtube is now restricting the content. Shout out in the comments if you find the source video elsewhere online.
