We Reef. And we know things.

It’s a podcast, about reef keeping, by two reef keepers that are polarizing enough to be interesting.

Terence says – Rich and I decided that we mattered – to ourselves! So we wanted to make a podcast that would share our passion for the marine aquarium and reef keeping hobby, our knowledge about it, and have some fun doing it. Please join us as we have fun and (hopefully) give you some good insight on topics like: new products, industry highlights, husbandry tips, and ethics – but most importantly, engage you and make you think.

    EPISODE 12 - SIP Reefing

    EPISODE 12 - SIP Reefing

    Shelter in Place tank updates, impending coral spawn, COVID and the hobby/industry, new products that make us squint, and Rich’s favorite piece of equipment. Sorry for the off-balance sound. We fixed it in the first 7-minutes, but just wanted to get this out as fast as possible - if anyone would like to do the rest, have at it, let us know, and we would be super-grateful!  :)

Awesome

Glad i found a show to listen for reef stuff

Great show

Just started listening and up to episode 3, aka 4 because of the pilot episode and I am really enjoying it. The hosts have a good pulse on the hobby and are doing a great job of talking about how we need to promote reefing at home. The only downside is the unrelated banter, but that’s probably just me.
I see the show went for only 2 seasons, probably due to C19. Here is to hoping they return soon.
