    Japanese Reef Aquariums From Nearly 10 Years Ago

    Take a look at these videos from Konparu, that were previously featured in his My reef aquarium vol.2 & 3 back in 2000 & 2001. Keep in mind these aquariums are from nearly 10 years ago.

    Take a look at these videos from Konparu, that were previously featured in his My reef aquarium vol.2 & 3 back in 2000 & 2001. Keep in mind these aquariums are from nearly 10 years ago. In most videos the lack of water motion devices available in Japan (besides the MJ1000) is evident. Even in the U.S. the importance of flow was not fully understood. Take a look at RC’s TOTMs from this period as well. It shows how far the hobby has come.

    Nonetheless the aquascapes shown here are striking. Some of you may recognize a few of these, like the C.P. Farm turtle grass tank… The quality of the videos is not great, but the first two are available in higher quality. Click the HQ button at the video’s lower toolbar.

     

     

     

     As for the cover photo of this post, that’s a teaser for  more JP reefs in the future.

      That goby in the first vid needs some food! But very nice corals!

      The thing that impresses me the most is Japanese supreme aquascape.
      Also it is good to know that you CAN have all this SPS corals without so much water pumps in aquarium… lot’s of people forget that nowdays – sometimes more isn’t better.

      If you can dig some pictures of these reefs I would be thankfull.

      BTW we can all agree that those filter feeder stars werent happy in mr.Takayugi Adegawa’s reef – well it can’t be all that perfect 😉
