Embracing a plug and play aquarium for personal coral reefs

Red Sea Max 250 Reef Photo Update, May 2011

Wow, it’s been a while. [As I type this President Obama is going to announce that Osama Bin Laden has been killed.] Anyway, I am back from a serious overdose of life but not necessarily living. I plan on blogging about all of the equipment I have added and also profile the corals, fishes and other captive, but happy living things. In the meantime, below is the tank today. Not too shabby, except for some hair algae which is hopefully now under control.

  1. how you you make the rock like that? is it just balanced?

  2. Paul, all rocks are wedged in and fitted tightly like a game of Tetris. It took some effort to do so. I could have drilled holes in the rocks and use acrylic rods (and or plastic zip ties) to secure them but didn’t. I could have also used cement to glue the rocks together. I am going to re-aquascape half of my tank within the next week and may use one of those methods.

    If you are reading this an in an earthquake zone or plan on getting a pistol shrimp or fish such as a Trigger fish that likes to rearrange rock work, be safe and secure your rocks using one of the above methods.

    Thanks for the comment.
