ATM understands the effect that this hobby can have on the environment if a hobbyist is not properly educated. Not only do we do the proper due diligence to educate and inspire but we also create many of out tank environments in a very environmentally responsible way. One would think that an artificial coral feature would look like just that, "artificial". That is definitely not the case with our hand formed coral rock bases and animal friendly hard coral and plant inserts. We take the beauty of the natural ocean to unprecedented levels. See for yourself.
