The 400g Reef Resetting Project

After more than 3.5 years of growth, some colonies were dominating the aquarium blocking light and impeding flow. Duane helped me with this project, which involved cutting out the huge corals and planting smaller choice bits to reset the reef. It's not an easy task, and mentally it can be challenging as well. I had to give him the reigns because left to my own means, I would have saved every coral instead of sacrificing the bulk to attain new beauty. It's been a month since we completed this event, and I've gradually come around to accept the newer look and appreciate the individual polyps more and more each day. And I have room to add a few more SPS frags now. ;) Find me on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/melevsreef Or my site: http://www.melevsreef.com http://www.reefaddicts.com I'm also on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/melevsreef Music by Royalty Free Music - Smooth Jazz Instrumental for Movie Soundtrack: https://youtu.be/V4DIyYzCLbE and Free Background Music for Videos - Youtube - No Copyright - Download Instrumental EDM Tropical House: https://youtu.be/V-ZVhAlxkgg
What could you put in a 1000 l saltwater aquarium? Can you put nemo fish with sea horse? The budget is between 1000-5000€.
Tell to me what can you put in a aquarium to have happy and healti fishes? From corals, anemones..to fishes. Dont tell me "google it", please. I dont want to mix alot of species. I want to have baby fish too.
You should start off with some education before you spend any money whatsoever. Get a subscription to Coral Magazine, for example. Watch a bunch of my videos, I share all sorts of useful knowledge as I ramble from topic to topic, sometimes off topic. :)
Baby fish will not be an option, other than buying very small fish in the first place. That is where saltwater and freshwater differ.
Finally, google is your friend. And any question you ask, add the word melev to the end. "what temperature should my reef be melev" is an example. If I've answered that question before on my website, in a forum or here on Youtube, you'll find it quickly.

Those friends must be happy with their frags too.
That's a good example to many. Sharing your reef is better than selling it.

Seriously though, you're probably going to have some serious growth going on now that everything can get light now!
It can be shocking when you look at change on this scale. Once the corals get back to growing again, it will get better.
