    Vasconcelo Gives LPS Aquascaping Clinic

    Our European blogging friends over at H20 + Something recently featured the impressive reef tank of Artur Vasconcelo. The near 1,000g system is filled with plenty of gadgets, a tank room that would make you jealous, and a shoal of surgeons that would put the Tang Police in shock. Even with all that, for me, the most […]

    Emaco R400 Architectural Cement Is An Aquascaper’s Best Friend

    One of my favorite Aquascaping tools that I’ve ever used is Thorite Cement. It has proven to be reef safe in small quantities (still use caution and your brains when adding to an aquarium).

    Glassbox Update | Building a Pinnacle Rock Structure

    Coral Magazine Jan-Feb 2009 Issue – New Site, Aquascape Contest, No T5s?

    This past weekend I had the opportunity to sit down and read the January/February  2009 issue of Coral Magazine. (If you are not subscribed to Coral, I strongly suggest it. I would not hesitate to say that Coral is one of the top reef publications–both in print and online.) In typical Coral/Koralle fashion, this recent issue is […]
