The Natural Style 1 Euro American Hybrid

Combining the best of various reef aquarium techniques and approaches, a growing number of North American aquarists are reporting unprecedented success with reef organisms, including previously hard-to-keep corals. Typically, the new natural-style system incorporates live rock, a bed oflive aragonite sand — with or without a plenum, strong, chaotic water movement, efficient protein skimming, and intense lighting.

Aquariums heavily stocked with growing corals and tri-dacnid clams also rely on limewater additions and/or the use of calcium reactors that extract calcium and other ions from aragonite sand in the presence of carbon dioxide.
