Top 5 Most Helpful Saltwater Aquarium YouTube Channels

Do you have a few minutes to surf? Are you looking for some how-to help, or maybe you’re thinking about a new aquarium DIY project? There’s no substitute for video to demonstrate certain topics. Unfortunately, I don’t have a face for video–I have a face for blogging, but that’s why I have compiled this list of The 5 Most Helpful Saltwater Aquarium YouTube Channels. Have you seen any of these masters of video?

The King of DIY

Looking for a cool DIY project? Look no further than the King of DIY. In full disclosure, not all of the projects are appropriate for the saltwater hobby, but you’ll still find some really cool projects–like one of my favorite here:

Creating a water bridge. I need one of those.

The King of DIY is a huge page that attracts a freshwater and saltwater audience, with about 230,000 subscribers and more than 43 million page views

Melevsreef

It’s no secret, this guy knows his stuff. With more than 18,000 channel subscribers and more than 1,000,000 video views, Marc Levenson, from Melev’s reef has an informative and interesting channel that I strongly recommend you check out.

What captures my interest and supports the recommendation on this page is that Marc creates interesting stuff you can’t and won’t see on any other page.

Like one of his most popular videos here–the clownfish slide:

Marc is the only one to have made the top saltwater aquarium blogs and top saltwater aquarium YouTube posts. Great job, Marc, and thanks for all you do.

Tidal Gardens

https://www.youtube.com/user/tidalgardens

The Tidal Gardens YouTube page is at the perfect intersection of eye candy andy helpful information. The videography is STUNNING. Yes. I wrote that in all caps. STUNNING. This is truly one of the best channels out there. There is no wonder the page has over 27,000 subscribers and more than 4 million views. I look forward to their updates and you should too.

Mr. Saltwater Tank

https://www.youtube.com/user/mrsaltwatertank

Mr. Saltwater Tank has been around for a while. He started his page in 2009 (about the same time I started Saltwater Aquarium Blog), has more than 50,000 subscribers and over 11 million views.

A great video to start with, to get a feel for the helpful advice Mr. Saltwater Tank offers is with the video embedded below:

Tuning a protein skimmer

I also like that every now and then they sneak in a tongue and cheek joke.

BRS TV

https://www.youtube.com/user/BulkReefSupplyCom

BRS TV is produced by Bulkreefsupply.com, a well-known name in the online saltwater aquarium dry goods space.  They literally have hundreds of videos and MILLIONS of views. They have a video for everything from how to start up a new reef tank to advanced techniques like carbon dosing .

I don’t know how these guys find time to run the Bulk Reef Supply online store, because they are absolutely killing it on Youtube, with nearly 90,000 subscribers and 19 million views!

BRS TV, for my money, is the #1 Most Helpful Saltwater Aquarium YouTube Channel. Say that 10x’s quickly.

One of my favorite episodes is embedded below: Simple ways to create a beautiful aquascape:

  1. Diy king has cool videos but he is not into saltwater plus he doesn’t have any salt water fish or corals.
    I don’t know why you guys added his channel in list of top 5 saltwater helpful youtuber

    John, Thanks for the comment. I did wonder if DIY king would be a polarizing or distracting selection here. The lack of Saltwater-specific content is certainly why they are ranked 5th on the list, among all the other choices. Here are a few videos I found helpful which were factored into the decision:
    How to build a simple aquarium filter (appropriate for a quarantine tank or acclimation…or just to prove you could do it
    DIY Brine shrimp hatchery
    How to build a glass aquarium
    DIY aquarium overflow
    How to build a plywood aquarium
    How to cut acrylic

    I could go further, but I hope you see that from a certain perspective, many of these projects could be applied in our great hobby. Out of curiosity, and to keep the discussion going, do you have a preferred 5th choice? I’d gladly give them space here.

    John, thanks for the comment–it’s a fair point that the majority of his content is not for saltwater. My rationale for including him was that I found some of the projects to be helpful, applicable, and popular by Youtube standards, although I certainly appreciate and understand your point. I need a better 5th option, any suggestions?
