New Reef Tank May 09 - Stuart Bertram PRESS HD BUTTON

This is the first in a series of videos of my new reef aquarium. The tank made by Deltec in Germany is 220cm wide x 150cm front to back and 75cm water depth and was shipped in one piece. This video was taken after 2 months with work still in progress and most of the livestock was moved from my old system. Total system volume is 2500lts or 550 gallons (660USG). There are more photographs of the system on our website which is shown at the beginning of the video.

Stuarts fish are active in every video ive seen, it might be the D-D foods he uses. Gives the fish a healthy wet shiny nose lol

Dammmm never seen that kind of aquaskaping before. Really nice I like the openness of it while still keeping a bunch of corals n shtuff. Are your fish always that active or just feeding time or something?

@TonyatDD coral mounting part 3 The small frags broken or cut off of mother colonies are usually only 3-4" and easily mount using Aquascape putty, any soft corals needs to be tied to the rock where they will attach and grow. This is the method that would be closest to seeding a tank with young corals. Corals such as Pocillipora sp do self propagate on occasion by dropping polyps when water quailty is correct but for the most part mounting frags is an enviromentally friendly way to stock coral.

@TonyatDD coral mounting part 2. The soft coral will then start to base and grow in the new location. If there is any flesh left on the old rock leave it in the aquarium in good light and you should find it will regrow.You can also mount rocks plus corals using Aquascape putty but the large rocks will need propping into position untill the putty has harden,just make sure they are well seated and not balancing. Many of Stuart's sps corals were taken as fragments(frags) from other systems.

@TheMarkenzo007 Hi- Im replying for Stuart in this instance. With regards to mounting corals then if they are on very large rocks in will be best to remove them and remount. For SPS hard corals break them from the rock at the base and mount to your current aquascape using a reef putty such as D-D Aquascape. Prop the corals up whilst the putty hardens and the coral will grow and base out again. For soft corals cut them from the rock and anchor them into a new position using fishing line.

Are your hard corals built into the main rock, because I can't get mine to balance because they come with the rock they are on, does this sound weird but can you buy coral seeds that you just sprinkle in your tank then they with grow on the main rock?
