We’ve been watching all your Reef Builders posts, and just want to thank everyone for continuing to share your amazing reef aquarium displays using #reefbulders on Instagram!! Not a day goes by where we aren’t completely blown away by your skills and dedication to this hobby.
We find it’s fairly easy to impress the general public with any sort of saltwater aquarium, but to impress a reef hobbyist is another level. To have a mature thriving reef tank takes a diligent commitment to maintenance, a keen understanding of water chemistry, and lots of love and attention for livestock husbandry.
While our personal taste in aquariums leans towards species-specific biotopes and more natural-looking reef recreations, we can’t help but marvel at some of these dream reef displays. And sure deep pockets to pack a tank full of coral will usually do the trick to impress even the most seasoned hobbiests, nothing beats the beauty of grown-up coral colonies packed into an aquatic dreamscape like the ones below.
Hats off to everyone keeping these dreamy reefs at home! And even if we didn’t mention you here, we continue to find new reef tanks each day on #reefbuilders that inspire us to be a better reef keeper!
