    What your favorite part of Reefing?

    We all have the same love for reefing but what’s your favorite part of it. I’m curious as to why everyone’s in the hobby or what got them into reefing? Is it the corals or the fish? Do you like buying a frag and watching it grow? Maybe it’s the whole tiny ecosystem you control and you can see...

    DIY 180gal stand build, what you all think

    I’m pretty new to the reefing scene, started about a year ago with a 55g and quickly realized, that tank size wasn’t gonna cut it. Had a lot of success with it but just to small over all.

    Biotek reef rock. Vs BRS reef saver rock.

    I’ve used BRS reefsaver rock for a long time. I’m setting up a 180 and looking to purchase some rock. I can’t find a single review about the biotek rock, yet it looks the same as the reef saver and about a $1 per pound cheaper. Any experience with the biotek rock. Thank you.
