VIDEO: Spaceship Reef In A Bottle, Part 2
06 Jan, 2023
After introducing the front-end challenges of a stunning 6,000-gallon reef aquarium in a private Atlanta home in the first video installment, the team at Reef Aquaria Design (RAD) returns to showcase the life support and other systems that keep this reef aquarium growing and thriving.
RAD’s Giovany Cardo travels to Atlanta monthly to run through an entire systems check; calibrating pH probes, replacing reagents in the Neptune Systems Trident, replacing the Chemi-Pur Blue chemical filtration media that’s housed in a Deltec media reactor, cleaning all the equipment, and numerous other tasks.
You’ll also get a glimpse at what goes into feeding this massive reef aquarium, whose inhabitants consume approximately a pound of food per day!
Pay close attention to some of the details revealed in this video; there are a couple of very interesting ideas from the professionals at RAD that would be great to implement in your own home filter room, particularly if you’re not in the position to hire a team of professionals to install a “blue whale” of a reef aquarium in your own home!
