Brandon Mason’s Micro Reefs, circa 2007

CORAL Magazine contributor Brandon Mason kicks off our January/February 2018 cover feature MICRO REEFS with his article “Pico Reefing Master Class.”

This video, now 11 years old, demonstrates the history Mason has with keeping the smallest of reef aquariums using nothing more than light, air, and routine water changes. Watch as he takes you through a 1-gallon vase reef and a custom-built half-gallon (yes, 0.5 gallons, 2L) miniaturized rectangular-style reef tank.

Note: the footage of the tanks cuts out around the 5-minute mark.
