Reef Tank Setup Explained

Unlike other aquarium type services, reef aquariums not only need nitrates removed, but they also require the trace elements replenished.  Preforming a 10 percent water change every 2 weeks helps keep parameters where they need to be, in order to keep the corals growing and healthy.

Saltwater, or Fish Only With Live Rock. (FOWLR) Don’t need servicing every 2 weeks like a reef tank, but certain situation may promote a more frequent cleaning if biomass is too much for the size of the aquarium. 

Servicing a reef tank every 2 weeks serves several purposes. 

  • It allows the Aquatics Specialist to make better observations and have a better understanding of the system.
  • Replacing trace element through water changes, or maintaining either a 2 part dosing setup, or calcium reactor.
    • Reef aquarium maintenance may also be recommended or suggested based on the types of corals kept.


Depending on the types of corals kept, or how many. A reef aquarium may need additional trace element supplements.  Mainly that of calcium and alkalinity. 

The most common ways to replace these elements is either a 2 part dosing, or calcium reactor. While 2 part dosing is easier,. The calcium reactor is very particular with it’s setup.

There a lot more going on in a reef tank, and it’s important to keep everything maintained. So if your in need of help, or don’t have the time? Reach out to us, and we’ll figure out the best course of action, and keep your reef looking the way it’s supposed to look… absolutely beautiful.
