|This Montipora originally came from an aquaculture facility in Bali. It has now adjusted to captivity, and it is starting to grow very rapidly. The structures that are forming on the surface of this Montipora are larger than individual polyps and they are called tuberculae.
You can see the smooth underside of this plating coral on the small uplifted plate. This new Montipora has now grown large enough to fragment, and we will be dividing this colony and several like it soon. We will make several different size cuttings, and we will mount them with a different orientation for each cutting.
These new cuttings will be photographed regularly, and after a few months we will be able to determine the best fragment size and orientation for this new species. By studying the photographs that we already have of this coral, I am certain that it will plate very easily. I am sure that small fragments approximately one-half inch square that are mounted with the cut edge facing up will produce the best number of coral plates.
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.|
