• 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!
