While a saltwater reef tank may seem like a daunting task to even the most experienced of fish-tank enthusiasts, building a reef tank from scratch does not have to be a complicated endeavor. In fact, a reef tank can be a project that is quite simple under the right circumstances.
The whole process requires a bit of patience, but the reward is well worth the wait. A reef tank is teeming with life in every corner, with corals and crabs working in conjunction with the fish and other marine life to form an incredibly entertaining aquarium.
While not everyone has the means to personally finance an $8-million reef aquarium project, it is possible to create a beautiful reef tank in any home and on any budget according to Adam Kutner. Again, a saltwater reef tank requires some initial patience, but the time spent in the early stages is quickly rewarded once the tank begins to take on a life of its own.
