Tristian's Reef: Crystal Reef ATO - The ReefMadre

In this episode I finally get rid of the ugly ATO bucket that I had been using as an ATO Container. I also have a bad encounter with "The Madre" regarding a little spill while refilling the bucket.

Along with her 2 Goons especially "Big Mike" I learn a lesson in flooding floors, baby sharks, and generally find out what torture is like with sound.

I'm in the process of setting up a similar size tank and was wondering is there anything you would have done differently now that your 6 months in? I was planning to build a stand and sump but after looking at the Framing Tech stands and the Stealth sump I'm rethinking. I was quoted $3K for a steel/powdercoated stand plus shipping which made me lean tords DIY.

Tristian's Reef: Hurricane Florence 350 Update #2

With Hurricane Florence raging outside I decided to do an update on the 350 should the worst happen.

Special Thanks and shout-out to Upscale Aquatics for their assistance and sponsorship.

Another special shout out to Brian who built an AWESOME wrap for the Framing Tech stand.

Let me know what you guys think or If you have any suggestions!

Iíd hit up framing tech for the stand. I think it would be cheaper than 3k

Tristian's Reef: Secret of Fish Health DIY Fish Food

In this episode I take a look at one of the pillars of Reef Keeping. I believe that my success with difficult fish and corals is due in part to the foods that I feed them. Faced with the prospect of spending hundreds of dollars a year in commercial fish foods I decided to make my own using the same stuff that commercial breeders use to keep their fish healthy, and in breeding form.

Look out for Part 2 where I I feed the fish and give an update of the tank itself! Thanks for watching and your support. Please let me know below what things you like to add to your fish foods!

Looking good Tristian, being able to control what goes into your food plus rinsing out contaminants makes for a happier reef!

Tristian's Reef : 325 Gallon Build Prbly Flooding the Floor Again...

Tristian's Reef: (2019) - 350g Reef Update - Coral Eye Candy!


Hey everyone I was overdue a reef update. Originally I was going to do one before New Years but life got in the way.

This year I will be trying to get 1 new video out a week and I will also be doing more ReefTech videos since those were really popular last year.

Thank You EVERYONE for all the support this past year. Its been an amazing Journey as a youtube creator and fellow reefer. I look forward to creating new original content this year.

Excellent color and growth, what supplements are you using? What type of salt?

And why are you always having floods?
