Chris Ozment's 435 Gallon Reef Display


Chris’ impressive 435 gallon reef display is filled with vibrant and well-balanced colors.

Chris’ aquarium is featured as Atlanta Reef Club’s (ARC) Tank of the Quarter, where you can see many more photos.  Well deserved!  We plan to follow the progress of this aquarium and hopefully share it as an Advanced Aquarist Feature Aquarium in the future.  For now, enjoy the tank overview and the many splendid photos.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
