The reef aquarium hobby comes with a fascinating culture. Aquarists grow psychedelic coral gardens to enjoy with friends, and can even make some extra cash on the side. For regular Reef Builder readers, this comes as no surprise. But to someone who’s never even heard of a reef tank, the idea might just blow your mind.
Nas Daily is a facebook creator with over 3.5 million subscribers. He tells stories about people and places in 1-minute videos. Last week I was excited to see George Mavrakis pop up in his video, and George told me he applied for a contest to work with Nas, and won the opportunity to travel to Israel for the holidays.
George has been editing videos for Nas during their trip and his latest video was focused on the reef aquarium hobby. In 12 hours the video has more than 1 million views and it’s exciting to see the aquarium hobby exposed to such a diverse audience.
The video starts around a stunning outdoor reef tank at Coral World in Eilat Israel, while also featuring classic reef tanks and colorful frags. Although the daily videos are only 1-minutes long George says it’s video boot camp working with the Nas Daily crew.
Whether or not coral is the new bitcoin? Time to set up the reef aquarium blockchain.
