Reefapalooza Orlando this year was a really fantastic show. Historically the show has been dominated by coral farmers and fraggers tryina sell us sticks and polyps but last weekend we got treated so much more.
In five short years the Reefapalooza team has buttoned up their show to be one of the best with a great and diverse spread of livestock vendors, manufacturers, and a lot more wild cards. By wild cards we mean the companies making their debut for the first time, the ‘competing shows’ promoting their own events and especially all the artists that seem to have found some traction in the reef aquarium world.
This year for our coverage of Reefapalooza Orlando we decided to try something new, something a little different, and perhaps a stepping stone towards a new video series at the Reef Builders Studio. For this segment we really focused on all the new reef gear that caught our eye, took the appropriate clips, but then brought them back to the Studio for more in depth discussions where applicable.
If you’re catching this post within an hour of publication, the video coverage of Reefapalooza Orlando will Premiere live in one hour, 1pm EST, 10am PST. Once the video is live the clip will be a perfect place to ask all your burning questions about upcoming reef gear, newer products and general reef spec queries.
