I recently had the opportunity to attend Reef-A-Palooza 2017 in Orlando. This was an awesome convention for anyone in the aquarium hobby. There was A lot of coral to purchase as well as a lot of other companies selling and displaying their products. If you are a reef enthusiast Reef-A-Palooza is for you.
I did edit together a video of some of the highlights and I talk a little about the convention and what I really got out of it. Reef-A-Palooza Orlando 2017
Very recently I had an ick outbreak in the tank which killed all but 2 fish. Since then I have experienced an algae bloom. basically the tank is in a state of recovery, which could take a few weeks to come back up to par.
Watch this video to see my tank before this outbreak:
The filtration on the tank has stayed very similar, although I have organized it a bit more. Some of the corals have also started to not look so good. While others that were not doing as good are surprisingly doing better. I will post more updates in the future about how things improve as well as things that go wrong.
This is a current picture of the tank.

My name is Drew Young and I am an “enthusiastic marine biologist to be”. I have spent the last 5+ years immersing myself into this fascinating world. I have been to the ocean many times and there got a taste of the experience but it has been my hobbies at home that has engulfed me. In this blog I hope to express my passion and also provide some insight into the care, feeding, and establishment of various aquatic ecosystems. I will be posting articles, video demonstrations, and updates of the various environments I have created.
I hope you will find this information of educational value but in a fun way and also share with me in this passion for aquatic life.
I look forward to making this journey with you!
