headshotHi, I am Brian. I’ve been in the aquarium hobby since 2015. The passion began for me with a 29-gallon aquarium with tetras, which quickly turned into a cichlid tank. I then upgraded to a 100-gallon African Cichlid tank. Shortly thereafter this led to the breeding of cichlids and I had a total of 21 aquariums all throughout my fish room. I’ve also kept planted tanks as well with some success but my real passion was becoming saltwater aquariums. Around 2016 I sold all of my freshwater fish and started keeping saltwater fish and corals. I’ve gone through many trials and tribulations learning this amazing hobby throughout the years. I’ve learned a lot since 2015 as the hobby has changed and continues to change.

Ocean Frags was started as a way to sell some of my corals to fund my hobby for me. Today Ocean Frags serves as a platform to help newer reefers gain the knowledge to have a successful hobby. From basic how-tos, and what not to do’s, to advanced aquarium methods, pest prevention, and plant, fish, and coral identification and care guides I share everything you need to know about this wonder aquarium hobby. If there is something I haven’t written about, please feel free to contact me and I will gladly help you with your problem.

Currently, I have 2 main systems. The first is a 150-gallon Planet Aquarium with a 40-gallon sump. The 2nd is a 50-gallon lowboy frag tank with a 50-gallon acrylic sump. My main focus is growing SPS corals such as Acropora, Millepora, Tenuis, Anacropora, and other SPS species.

All posts and content on this website are just my personal views and opinions. I do my best to help new and veteran reefers by sharing my experiences I’ve had since 2015. My views and opinions may change as I continue to learn more about the aquarium hobby. I am by no means a “pro” and any and all information gathered on this website should be used as just information shared by a fellow reefer. Please do your due diligence and research as much as you can before making any decisions that may impact your aquarium. I can not be held responsible for any issues that happen to your aquarium.
