Holiday Gift Idea - The Empty Canvas - S1/E26 Reefs and Reptiles

    • Pets & Animals

In this episode of Reefs and Reptiles, I will discuss the idea of giving and empty aquarium or terrarium as a gift for the fish / reptile fanatic in your life.  An empty fish tank is like a blank canvas for an artist.  When I see an empty tank the possibilities of what it could turn into make my brain run wild.  I love the idea of bringing an ecosystem to life.  I'll give some different ideas for what your friend or significant other could do with this blank slate.  Part of the fun of this is just gifting the empty tank and seeing what the person does with it.  Will they stick with what they know, or branch out and try something different.  Some of the most compelling set ups I have seen don't have any animals in them at all, they are just plants or in the case of saltwater, simply corals.  The point is, the gift of an empty aquarium provides an opportunity to be creative, and that process is something that many of us love and enjoy.
