Hi This is Sally Jo Hedlee, I am so excited and humbled as to how much work is ahead of me to try and make our website more user friendly, to share new projects, updates, and specials. I am finally rolling up my sleeves and putting my saltwater hands to work bringing GARF's website back to all of our followers who have made us known through out this incredible hobby.
I have to take a moment and Thank Jeffery Wood, he owns and operates Jeffrey Wood Consulting. Jeffery continues to be so kind and patient as he walks me through the unknown path of web coding, linking and design. It is with his help I am able to continue to share my passion and all that I do here at GARF with the rest of the World. All of the information on our site is so vitally important that is hard to figure out where to begin, so we have decided to keep all of the data, projects, and research on the site, get rid of the duplicate information, edit and continually share new products as well as projects as they come about. Come back and visit us often as you will see the new website unfolding.
I pledge to work as hard, as fast, and non stop to learn all I can about updating the website.
For I have so much to share, as the miracles of life Mother Nature blesses GARF with each day continue to unfold.
Meanwhile we need now more then ever for you to push these pay pal buttons to help support our efforts so that the treasure chest full of answers, and questions yet asked continue to grow. The grunge, the rock, the bugs, the corals, the janitors, the mollies, the macro algae, and so much more is still for sale to help support the up keep, operational expenses, and mission for GARF
It is hard for us to believe that GARF was just a dream 19 years ago. We had no idea how far we would come, how many friends we would make, how many lives we would touch, nor how much research we would accomplish. The one thing however that we never forget is that we could never have come this far without each and everyone of you. With LeRoy's passing the journey has been long, difficult, saddened, and painful. I pinch myself every day and remind myself this is what LeRoy would want us to do. Stive to be the voice for these amazing animals, share information, and express the passion for our captive reefs. The goal line and our mission is what keeps us going no matter how hard the journey is. The more people who learn about the reefs or how are lives are impacted by them the more chances we have to educate someone who can join our voices and do one simple thing to help sustain our wild reefs. When we roll up our sleeves and dust off the blue thumb we also take on huge responsiblities, for they need our daily care. Not only do we need to set aside the time to care for this magicical resource we also have to set aside money in our monthly budget. We hope that when you set down and figure out your budget you pay special attention to your reef tank, for they too need to be cleaned and nurtured so that the life that resides inside can keep growing. I have to say that not one time at GARF have we ever found a tank that we could not bring back to its original beauty. Our snails and hermit crabs go through a very strict training program here and not one of them leaves before they have completed their courses. The hermits are busy dusting off the rock and picking at algae until you can not see it. The snails go in and out and even under the rock, and they are by far the best glass and plastic cleaner ever. With the snails what one will eat the other won't and because of sizes and shapes some of the snails can get into places the others can not. We have selected packages for all tank problems as well as tank sizes. I can not tell you how important it is to pick the right size package so that you get the results you are hoping for and can sit back and enjoy your tank and watch these amazing janitors do there job. I hope you will consider adding our salt water mollies they are such a huge addition to our janitor packages they never get tired and stay forever busy. All of our hermits and snails are 1.00 each and at this time I am also offering my salt water mollies at 1.00 and if you order them with your janitors the shipping will remain the same. You can push the pay pal button that fits your size of tank or if you need guidance for the store is far from easy to use, but I am working on it. I really am. . I am working non stop trying to learn how to make our site reflect the passion we have for the life that lives under water. This past week has been extremely rewarding and overwhelming to me. For Four clucthes of anglefish have made it past egg, past wiggler and now they look like perfect minatures of mommy and daddy. We shipped out our first test shippments to see how they would do in transport after taking in a huge breath of releif we are proud to report they all made it safely to their destinations. So if you are looking for any healthy, beautiful fresh water angles please let us know. The Anglefish hatchery is a standing tribute to LeRoy for his passion was collecting and breeding the fish with the perfect name. I would watch LeRoy for he would stand in front of the tanks and look at the angles and I could witness the calmness settle in and no one could wipe away the smile on his face, no matter how tough his day was going. Now I am found looking into the same angles tank with tremendous yearning and wonderment as I reflect back on LeRoy's strenght, kindness, brillance and compassion. Soon there will be stories posted on line sharing all of my daily encounters which always seem to bring new challenges, yet an overwhelming compassion for these animals that trust us to find the answers to save their lives. This is when I vow to never ever give up for their need is much greater then my need and I am beyond grateful to be a voice for their care.
GARF's on going mission is to reach all the people we can to teach them all that we can about the environment that sustains us. We can no longer take it for granted nor ignore its cry for help. For it was this very cry for help that compelled LeRoy and I to share every single research project we embarked on and pass it on to you with the clear message if I can do it so can you. I still can not believe that I figured out how to code the web site so that I can manage it, sustain it, and up date it.

Please take sometime to enjoy all the information LeRoy and I have shared for the past 18 years of our life. It is hard to believe that when I looked into LeRoys eyes and asked him if there was anyway that we could develop programs that took nothing from the ocean it would lead us this far. At present many leading rock farmers are making rock and placing it in the ocean and pulling it up and selling it as live rock (simply amazing). So many coral farmers are propagating corals, trading, selling and even making a living by the projects that we developed and decided to share on line with everyone (truly incredible). Others are growing, raising bugs, and hatching saltwater fish (life's miracle). The message we started 18 years ago has become crystal clear if we can do it so can you. All of you have proven this to be true. WE are not finished yet, for each day I learn something new, refreshing and stumble to the computer wanting to share this new found knowledge with you yet since LeRoy's gone I can still take the pictures, and write the stores but the coding bug has not taken on its charm that I need to find to complete this task. Soon to come there will be a new link it will share in detail some of the lessons I continue to learn each day regarding how our systems are set up, how we maintain them, coral propagation, light making, rock making, bug growing, fish hatching and the many hats that I switch on and off as each day brings in another new adventure. This is what I love to do and it just fuels my soul being able to share it with you. Remember it costs money to grow corals you can only make money when you sell them. Sincerely Sally Jo Headlee

WE ARE STARTING THE SUMMER BY TEACHING AS MANY PEOPLE AS WE CAN
HOW TO START THEIR OWN CORAL FARMING COMPANY.
We use two types of grunge in each reef. In the main tank Garf Grunge Original™ is used. In new tanks we use one pound for each 3 gallons. We also use it to revitalize old tanks, and we add one pound for each 5 gallons of water.
Garf Grunge Original™ has the worlds best strains of bacteria sponges and micro invertebrates.
We have been working for years to build a product that has a very good track record. Many people reorder and seventy percent of our orders are repeat customers. We thank all of them for their support! The Garf Grunge Original™ is the most important one to add when you are starting a new tank. It is a small gravel size, and it is full of very beneficial bacteria, coralline, and micro invertebrates. You do not have to be member of PAYPAL to use the buttons below! The grunge buttons are BUY IT NOW buttons, because each special fills the box. You get the best deal using the buy it now buttons below.
We use many types of grunge in each reef.
Garf Grunge Plus™ consists of larger particles about the size of walnuts down to thumbnail size and it is harvesteed from the older tanks.
Garf Grunge Plus™ contains more of the small invertebrates such as the worms, Copepods, Amphipods, and many others such as Brittle stars.
Garf Grunge Plus™ is used to create a cryptic zone in the existing aquarium. This is done by piling the Garf Grunge Plus™ in a back corner. Garf Grunge Plus™ is the finest thing to add to seed the refugeum. This product has been extremely popular and it does a great job of creating a small hiding place called the cryptic zone in the main tank and in the sump.
