• Welcome to Bayou Reefkeeping!

    We are a Louisiana based reef club dedicated to the marine and reef hobbyist in the Gulf Coast region and surrounding areas. Like you, we are a group of hobbyists that share in your enthusiasm and desire to learn how to better care for our tank inhabitants. Bayou Reefkeeping is open to anyone interested in learning more about the hobby, whether you are a novice or expert in reefkeeping. It is your questions, advice, and participation that help define Bayou Reefkeeping and build an informational community. All we ask is that members actively participate in discussions, respect one another, and have fun!

    2015 Christmas Party!!! Saturday, December 5!

    By Reef Tank Greg,

    It's almost time for the annual Bayou Reefkeeping Christmas Party!!! This year's party will be held on the first weekend of December. Santa Claus will also be making his annual visit at the party! Be sure to bring your kids and a small gift for Santa to deliver! He'll be arriving with the gifts in his sack at 6pm!


    1129 E. Angela St. Gonzales, LA 70737


    Each year, we try to support a worthy cause via our Christmas Party.

    Well, this year we cannot possibly have a better cause.

    As most here know, one of our members, Scott (6lilfishes),is currently busy kicking butt fighting a major illness. Although he hasn't asked us for any help, we are going to do a raffle to help support his family. Tickets will be $1 each and we hope to have an awesome selection of prizes!

    YOU can help! Although we are working with sponsors and vendors for donations, we are also encouraging members to make donations. Suggestions are frag packs, quality used equipment, etc. Let's come together as a community and take care of our BRK family member! Have something to donate? Well PM me to let me know!


    More info will be posted about the party in the upcoming days.

    By Reef Tank Greg,

    Hi everyone,

    As we are sure most of you realize, Bayou Reefkeeping is a non-profit organization. As such, we have a board of directors which manages the financial aspects of the business with input from the entire staff as a whole. Adam (TheGrimmReefer) was recently added to the board of directors. Since joining our club, he has been one of our most active members both on the forums and in the community. He has never hesitated to take on a leading role whenever and wherever needed.

    We are thrilled to have him join Bayou Reefkeeping's board of directors! Please join us in showing him our appreciation for his dedication to BRK!!!
