    HD Video of a Japanese LFS Acropora Display

    Lately when I think of Japanese SPS Reefs, I imagine smooth skinned “deepwater” acros and angelfish. These HD clips are just another reason why.

    This aquarium is a retail display for  Freewater, a Japanese LFS with a bad habit of carrying some great fish and corals that are unobtainable to most outside of Japan. This second clip shows the same retail tank roughly 1 year ago.

      I’m glad to see Japanese aquarium technology and design finally catching on among Western hobbyists. I remember a couple years back when I posted some pics of Japanese tanks with HID and LED spotlights focused on clean, open aquascapes on one of the poplar reef boards and people completely trashed them.

      If you think they do cool stuff with aquariums, you should check out what they also do with succulent plants. Selective breeding and cloning has resulted in crazy multi-hued variegated mutant plants that look like they are made out of plastic.
