Reefkeeping: Old School vs. New School

by | Jun 2, 2014 | Advanced Aquarist | 0 comments

Here is an “old school” soft coral aquascape featuring earth-tone brown color palette and full spectrum lights.  This type of aquarium ruled the scene in the late 80s to early 90s.

And here is a “new school” stoney-dominated aquascape featuring brilliantly pastel “ultra-low-nutrient-system” coloration and blue lights.  This type of exhibit dominates our hobby today.
