Simple reefkeeping is my philosophy…
The things I always hear when I tell people that I keep a saltwater aquarium is that they hear it’s a lot of work. A close second is that it cost a lot of money. While I do spend time and money on the hobby that we love, I try to keep my costs as low as possible and my maintenance as simple as possible. I want to spend my time enjoying my hobby!
So, I tried out all different ways to enjoy my hobby, while making sure the maintenance and upkeep is as simple as possible. You may find that I don’t follow best practices of doing immense water changes. I have not plumbed a sump. I don’t keep any mechanical filtration. No canister filters (my algae reactor doesn’t count). No sponges, filter socks, no carbon or any other kind of media. I run my tank on a protein skimmer and a diy algae reactor. It may not work for everyone, but it works for me. Here’s how things are looking so far:
Anyways, I am looking forward to sharing my adventure with you! To read more about how I arrived here, read my about page.
