Red Sea’s Reef @ The Aquatic Experience 2015
12 Nov, 2015
While it’s fair to say that the majority of aquariums on display at the 2015 Aquatic Experience were freshwater, that should come as no surprise, given the vastly larger size of the freshwater aquarium hobby. Still, marine fish were very well represented. While I saw several nice displays, one particular display caught my attention: the Red Sea REEFER™ System aquarium display set up by Chicago-area reef specialty retailer Sea Schor.
Considering that display tanks like this are set up extremely quickly, the odds are good that Sea Schor was only there a day before show opening to set this up. The tank has to look great immediately, which means careful livestock selection and the use of large coral colonies are a must.
Just as quickly as it was set up, the tank was torn down within hours of the event’s ending. It takes a special skill to pull this all off; clearly Sea Schor did an impressive job. Temporary displays like this are one of the many reasons to attend an event like the Aquatic Experience. Put it on your calendar for 2016 (as son as they announce the dates)!
Bonus – watch the Carlson Surge Device fire on Sea Schor’s 500-gallon in-store reef display!
