    Monthly Archives for January 2009

    It was a very good month. Dig in. Every entry is a classic.

    EcoReef’s Ceramic Modules Restore Nature’s Reefs

    One of the latest trends in european reefkeeping has been ceramic rock structures. In a similar fashion Michael Moore and EcoReefs have created a ceramic structure to help restore natural reefs that have been pulverized by blast fishing. EcoReef’s cermic modules slide together and are permanently adhered via epoxy and cable ties. Once assembled they […]

    The Glassbox, January 2009 Photos

    It’s hard to believe The Glassbox is nearly a year old.

As jealous as I am, I report John spent the weekend in Japan checking out the beautiful reef aquariums of various […]

    Reefiris pushes online reef aquaria to new levels | Index of aquarium builds + Real time info

    Imagine an online index of your favorite aquariums, TOTM style all in one spot–but what if you then added real time information? Keith Thornhill has been working on exactly this. Aptly named Reefiris, it is an online community that allows you to browse aquarium builds and view their real time data via a controller at the same […]
