Types of Aquariums : Marine Reef
A saltwater reef aquarium can have all the allure of the Great Barrier Reef! Ocean creatures, reef fauna, live coral and live rock with marine fish make an engaging focal point in any room.
It is even more of a natural environment because the well-rounded and ocean-realistic inhabitants of the aquarium more closely mimics the ocean. This way the fish can more naturally interact with their environment. Their diet can be supplemented by some natural ‘grazing’ activities in the reef-like system. The live rock and live sand assist in more natural filtration.
Unlike other saltwater aquariums, the true stars of the reef aquariums are the live coral and other invertebrates.
