Make Your Saltwater Tank A Thriving Reef Tank Without the Upset,
Headaches and DisastersThat Go Along With It

I know you want to make all the right decisions. I know you spend loads of time researching the most basic purchases (that your tank often doesn’t need). You get hit with terms like softie, LPS , tortuosa and T5 when asked about your tank. Confused and embarassed for not knowing the answers, you buy the first pretty coral you see.

Then you come home, plop the coral in the tank and hope for the best. Very often, the coral bleaches out and dies. (I know because people write me all the time asking for help with this very issue).

You are left to wonder: Why did it die?

    • Did you choose the wrong coral for your tank type?
    • Was it a water chemistry issue?
    • Was it due to improper lighting?

At this point you can either get another piece of coral and see if it lives (More money wasted) or dig around the maze of the internet looking for the answer for what to do different next time.

Keeping a successful reef tank is about maintaining
a 70/30 balance of two crucial things


What’s the 70% of the equation?


A reef tank contains corals which need light. Without light, corals die. Plain and simple.

With all the lighting options now available (fluorescent, metal halide, LEDs) there is more potential to screw it up.

Of course, ask about lighting a reef tank on any forum and you’ll likely hear advice like:

  • It’s all based on how many gallons your tank is
  • Halides all the way
  • Forget halides, LEDs all the way
  • LEDs are too new to know if they actually work
  • More light can’t hurt

I won’t lie, I’ve been there.
I asked questions in lighting forums and got what I thought was a right answer for what I needed.

Armed with what I thought was good info, I went out and bought my first lighting fixture that almost caught on fire. What makes things worse was that the fixture was the WRONG one for my tank. I almost burned my whole house down over a mistake.

After my near disaster, I tried again and luckily , I got the lighting part down. Then I got a rude awakening as I forgot about the remaining 30% of the reef tank equation.

The other 30% of the reef tank equation is so important that even if
you get the 70% right, you might as well start all over.

Yes, I said it. Start over. Nailing the lighting part of the reef tank puzzle is great, but then you’d forget about the remaining BIG pieces:

  • Flow: corals need food and oxygen so if they aren’t getting enough flow, they won’t get enough of what they need.
  • Chemistry: chemistry 101 is ok for fish only tanks, but reef tanks require a solid understand of chemistry 201. Fail this exam and you’ll be lighting a either an algae infested pile of rock or get to stare a dead coral skeletons.
  • Coral selection: your tank can be the model of perfection but if you put the wrong inhabitants in it, they’ll never live.
