Google takes it to the Ocean

Google Maps is now providing access to the underwater world.  This ocean collection includes six of the world’s most incredible underwater spots, including coral reefs (and their inhabitants) in Australia, the Philippines and Hawaii. This imagery is available to millions of people through the Street View feature of Google Maps located at: maps.google.com/ocean.  Very cool indeed. Could you imagine getting paid for this gig? Enjoy!


Fabulous Softy Dominated Tanks

Surfing around and stumbled upon this incredibly simple soft coral only tank on you tube. I for one love soft corals, I believe new people entering the hobby can gain much enjoyment out of a tank similar in nature. If you happen to know this guy, have him contact us for more details.



Here is a well done 75 gallon cube tank from about 10 yrs ago before there were advancement in the hobby. CBalance and water changes is all it took. I know, it is one of my first full blown “reef” tanks. Still own some of the same fish to this day. Reef on my friends.



I have had the pleasure of knowing “Mucho” for several years. His tank is a true inspiration to what can be done with a softy dominated tank. He won Tank of the Month on Reef Central and rightfully so.



Here is an incredible 750 gallon softy tank. WOW! Fish and coral movement, beautiful!

Only reefers see the cool and unusual

I am thinking of adding this to the bottom of my reef tank among the corals and watch people flip out, lol.

Car is an exact replica of the original, created using cement. Besides being cool, it is also a reef that houses a variety of fish and lobsters.
