|This is another picture of the beautiful pink tipped Montipora digitata. The Montipora is growing in Eddie Postma's 135 gallon tank. I think, this picture shows how beautiful three pink corals look when they are growing together like this. All of the forms of Montipora are as easy to propagate as the plating corals that we are talking about in the rest of this slide show.
Montipora digitata can be grown on plugs from fragments that are only one half-inch long. At GARF we do have several different varieties of this type of Montipora, but the plating Montipora have really captured and held my interest for the last few semesters.
The other corals in this picture are the giant pink Zoanthid, and the beautiful pink funnel shaped Sarcophyton that we purchased when we were in Baltimore, during one of the trips we made to teach coral farming at the Smithsonian.
The giant pink Zoanthid at the bottom of this picture is one of the fastest-growing types that we have ever grown, and this may be because it has been in captivity for almost fifteen 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.

|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.|
