|The next morning when I went into my office. I was distracted from my old habits which were beginning the day by looking in on my baby clownfish. Each morning I give them their feeding, count them, and I make sure they all are still alive. This day I started by looking at the mother Bali Xenia and then at the baby Xenia I had just made the day before. All the new cuttings had plumped up and where extending there little hands out of the netting and grasping at a new life. The mother colony was fully extended and smiling back at me as if to thank me for the new life I had given her.
I ran out of my office screaming, and I ran into the main office and yelled "come see, come see you are not going to believe this." When excited, as I was that day and many of my days at GARF LeRoy has repeatedly asked me to find two ways to scream.
He wants me to practice what is a good scream and what is a bad scream. He means that if the overflow box is not working or someone is run over that there is an alarm scream. He hopes that I could scream a different way when something wonderful was happening. Any one that knows me knows that when I am excited I don't think before I scream, I do this at football games, I do this in my backyard when my freshly planted seeds start to top up from the earth. At that time I had forgotten how many times I have cried out those words.
My loyal staff heeded my call - phones dropped - and they did not know what to expect since my last couple of calls had been when my clownfish laid eggs, or when my clownfish started to grow into their first stripes. I did not notice it at first but all my staff was looking in the direction of my Clownfish tanks, but I directed them to look at my latest achievements. The Bali was freshly cut and the little baby Bali Xenias were showing their heads. I was listening to their amazement and praise when LeRoy started laughing.
All of my baby clownfish could not believe how they in just one day had became second rate to a coral. They were swimming upside down to get our attention. We all had a great laugh and we never forget the tremendous gifts we are given if we simply pay attention. Never stop asking questions, never think that something can not be done, never give up, never give in for if I can do this so can you!!!!!
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.|
