|This pictures shows the progress the xenia was making after I cut her away from the other corals that were crowding her for space. This was just two months after the previous picture. These animals need lots of space to grow, and when you find the right spot for them in the tank you simply will not believe how fast they will grow.
It is amazing data that we have stored in our digital photos. For there would be no way for me to show you the results, or allow you to witness for yourself without the following pictures. This time I can truly state these pictures speak for themselves. If I had not taken the pictures it would just be my empty words. Even as I was taking the pictures I truly was unaware of their overall value.
I have to say that at this time in my life I was a little distracted from my main tank that this Xenia is living in. Unexpectedly, I was being called to be a mid -wife to several clutches of baby clownfish. Once again I was being called to a duty that I had no experience with. The joy of success is not measured in any way that words could convey.
I never forget how lucky all of us are to spend a part of our day caring for these life forms and passing this knowledge to others. I have taken over 200,000 pictures in the past seven years and each and every animal can be catalogued like we have done with the Bali Xenia. This data will be used in future articles showing the animals growth, and documenting the best way we have found to grow them during the past six years.
FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS WE HAVE WORKED VERY HARD TO PURCHASE, TRADE, AND SAVE AS MANY TYPES OF CORALS AS WE CAN.
We are having a special on all of the coral cuttings. WHEN YOU PURCHASE 5 AT THE REGULAR PRICE OF $100 WE WILL GIVE YOU TWO FREE CORALS!. We will continue to provide the most current data on reef farming for both education and profit.
Sometimes I forget how fun it can be to watch the Reef Janitorstm as they go about their duties. It is important to have the mixture of crabs and snails custom picked for your reef aquarium. Both Leonel and Brian are experts in algae control. You can be sure that they will choose the right mixture from GARF's extensive collection of algae eaters.
The GARF staff knows that each aquarium is different and they will ask about the size, lighting, and age of your reef. Summer is the most important time to add extra janitorstm because there is more light and the reef will be a bit warmer. When you order any Reef Janitor pactm you can pick a free coral or two pounds of GARF's FAMOUS GRUNGE LIVE SAND ACTIVATOR Reef Janitors tm or call toll free 800-600-6163.
Use this site to solve your reef aquarium algae problems, and help support our research!!!
|Many of the rare corals are offered to our members for 2 years before they are put on sale. We will soon have an E-mail list that will list the rarest color forms of sps corals and soft corals such as Xenia and Mushrooms.|
