|In this picture you can certainly see that there is a fire in Leonel to get this tank full and packed full of life. You will notice several sps corals in this 4-month-old reef. On the upper left-hand side you will see a green sps we fondly labeled the Green Slimer. Remember this tank is only four months old with only 3 30-watt bulbs.
Yes it can be done, it has been done and it will continue to be done. I will add that at GARF we throw nothing away, I literally mean nothing. Leonel actually comes into my office a couple times a week and asks me for the skimmer water from my oldest tank. He then pours it into his tank and calls this the steroids for his reef.
By this time LeRoy had cut the heads off of a couple of Leonel's xenias and had he been harvesting many of the zoanthids that Leonel had collected from our collection. Each day we walk by his tank we can not help but stop and admire the incredible beauty.
You can find many colors of coral and often we have a hard time finding anything brown. As this tank matures and the animals start filling in more you will see the amazing colors and combinations one can achieve in even a 30-gallon reef tank.
FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS WE HAVE WORKED VERY HARD TO PURCHASE, TRADE, AND SAVE AS MANY TYPES OF CORALS AS WE CAN.
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 Norm 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.

|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.|
