    Mini Fridge + Dosing Pump = Azoox Continuous Feeder

    As Azooxanthellate (“Azoox”) corals become more and more popular, so will automated feeding systems such as this. This regrigerated dosing set up was put together by Michael Lucazyn for his stunning Non-Photosynthetic Reef.

    Michael Lukaczyn’s Stunning Azoox Reef

    When it comes to color, shape and texture, Michael Lukaczyn’s azooxanthellate (non-photosynthetic) rimless reef aquarium competes with the best. This simple, well aquscaped, 50g glassbox houses animals that were once considered impossible to keep. Today we believe Mike’s tank will inspire new modern spins on non-photosynthetic reef displays.

Just as impressive as the corals themselves is the visible food densities in the […]

Check out these videos of Diodogorgia noduliferia, the commonly available yellow and red knobby gorgonian. You wont see polyp extension shown here in most tanks, thanks to target feeding of cyclops and rotifers. Azooxanthellae Project: Diodogorgia […]

    Pieter van Suijlekom’s Non-Photosynthetic Reef

This aquarium and the one I am about to show you is located in Vlaardingen just south of Holland. If you have never been to […]
