The Best of Both Worlds

Yin & Yang

A few of us have the good fortune of keeping multiple aquariums, but rarely do we see two of the more advanced subtypes set up side by side; The combination definitely makes for one dynamic presentation!  James’ two 20L rimless aquariums highlight the diverse disciplines and aesthetics within our hobby.   The slower-growing reef has some catching up to do to match the beauty and maturity of its planted counterpart (which is the focal point of the video*), but we have no doubt it’ll get there.
