Featured Tank Submission Guidelines

Earn reefing cred and score free goodies by becoming our next featured tank!

We occasionally highlight customer tanks that represent the pinnacle of reefkeeping. In addition to bragging rights, featured tanks entitle their owners to some free goodies and indefinite placement on the MarineDepot.com website. Hobbyists of all levels of experience will then be able to see which products and practices work well together so they can apply the same techniques to their own aquarium systems. 

If you would like to have your aquarium featured on our website, you’ll need to provide some basic information about yourself, your aquarium supplies (brands/models), your maintenance practices and some high quality digital photographs of your tank (preferably five or more). Required information is denoted below with an asterisk (*). 

Please send your entry information to [email protected] for consideration. If your aquarium is chosen as a featured tank, we will alert you via email to let you know approximately when your aquarium will be highlighted on our website. 

And don’t worry: we won’t publish your last name, email address or any other personally identifiable information online. We do, however, reserve the right to use images of your aquarium in future marketing efforts (in a slideshow at an event, for example). Thank you in advance for helping us to inspire present and future reefers.
