Wow... Where to start. Super, super impressive. Wish I had an LFS like that near me!... Great job showcasing it Jake. The highlight of this video (as amazing as everything was) is Alf sitting next to Ali at the end.... and the fact that it was never addressed in the video. Hilarious.

Goes to show you don't have to break the bank on filtration to have a beautiful looking Reef. Something I've been telling people for years.

What size are those Moorish Idols? They appear to be fairly small. Thanks for your videos!!

ali atapour - 4 years ago
They are baby Heniochus diphreutus. They come out of Hawaii and are much more "reef safe" than the other variants and species. I however did have to remove them because they started to nip.

Good to see a fellow hobbyist adopting the idea that you don't need a ton of gadgets and a plethora of dosing products to be successful. I would've like to know if that idea extended to water changes on his other words does he just occasionally do them or is that a weekly approach.
ali atapour
ali atapour - 4 years ago
I do them very occasionally. One week I'll do 5 gallons, then a month or two can pass and I'll do another 5 or 10 gallon. It's honestly pretty random. However it probably works out to a small water change every 4 to 8 weeks.

Hahha I know, just giving you a hard time. MH + T5 is still king for me, but I do enjoy the blue pop from a nice 450nm led strip on occasion. Props to Ali for keeping his setups simple and elegant

LOL, I don't care if someone uses incandescents as long as they get the results, I still absolutely love the look of metal halides, especially when supplemented with blue LEDs

Reef Builders

MOST reef and saltwater tanks have no kind of algae filter - just keep the tanks 'balanced', have a small bioload and don't feed too much or too often and you won't have excess nutrients.
