Watching Nathan’s video, I can’t help but relive my early days reefkeeping … days before exotic rockwork, “designer” corals, unobtainium fish, fancy lighting that requires a pHD degree to operate, and dosing everything under the kitchen sink.

Simple, healthy, big coral colonies swaying in the current — I ask you: What more do we really need?

Nathan describes his system:

My 80 Gallon rimless reef aquarium. Mostly soft corals and LPS with a Derasa clam. Equipment consists of 6x39W T5HO, 40 gallon sump, Avast Marine CS-1 skimmer. I perform weekly 10 gallon water changes with Reef Crystals salt.
