|This image shows how we mount Montipora capricornis cuttings. These cuttings are glued so that the cut edge faces up. This orientation is the opposite of how these plating Montiporas commonly grow, and we are certain that this method encourages the fragments to produce many plates. This fragment was glued just four days before this picture was taken, and I can already see four places that have started to grow rapidly along the pink edge of this coral.
In this slide show I will show you how to cut and propagate many different types of Montipora. During the next few months we will be able to show you many of the same corals several times. This will allow you to follow the progress of many different Montiporas that have been mounted in the brood stock reef aquariums here at GARF.
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.

|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.|
