How to Setup a Red Sea Reef Aquarium

If you want to make a big impression when people see your aquarium, you need a Red Sea Reef tank! With this type of aquarium, you can keep clownfishes, soft and hard corals, invertebrates, cool algae, mushrooms corals, and lots more. 

Everything is colored rich and you can keep looking at it for hours. You can find the best Red Sea Reefer 250 Deluxe Aquarium – 54 Gallon (Black) at Marine Depot.

The most important part of a red sea reef aquarium is the filtration system. You have to use live rocks to purify the water. I won't go into detail but the purpose is that they can sustain a special bacteria that is needed to keep the right balance in a red sea reef aquarium. Which you don't need in other aquarium types.

You have to get 1 pound of live rock for every gallon of water. This means you would need at least 55 lbs of it if you have a 55 gallons tank. The price of these rocks is expensive and can go at more than 10$ per pound. So it's a big part of your tank budget. You could look at websites like marinedepot.com to find people who are disassembling their tank and you could find live rocks for cheap.

Install your live rocks in your tank the way you want them to look. You could use some epoxy paste to glue them together so nothing moves.

Pour in the saltwater and plug your protein skimmer and water heater. Make sure all parameters are OK before adding new life to your tank. Your family and friends will be amazed when they see it!! Success guaranteed!
