SALLY JO'S PICTURES OF THE WEEK 4/28/99

REEF PICTURES SPONSORED BY REEF JANITORSTM

THIS PICTURE SHOWS THE SOLOMAN ISLAND FRAGS THAT WE MOUNTED IN LEROY'S 150 GALLON REEF.

This is the left side of the reef aquarium that we harvested the finished coral covered arches from.
BEST ARCH ROCK OF THE YEAR This link will show what the Aragonitetm arches we harvested looked like after a year in this reef aquarium.

aragocrete arches

We used our Reef Super Glue Gel to attach the cement disks to the Aragonitetm arches. Many of the corals were fragged before we mounted them. The frags that we cut were glued on the arches next to the Soloman disk they were cut from. As these frags grow they will cover the original disk and they will blend in to the coral they were cut from.

The purple Acropora is growing very fast. This type of sps coral first grows a base plate that has bright green polyps. We fragged this coral and you can see it mounted on a piece of coral rubble next to the purple Soloman colony.

The Aragocrete arches allow water to flow around the corals. We used Super glue to attach the frags. Soon the arches will be covered with coralline algae and colonies of rare colored sps corals. We will be able to harvest frags from these arches for years.

These arches are very light weight and you can run water through them with a garden hose. Eddie Postma adds some shredded plastic to each batch of Aragocrete he makes.

Coralline algae grows very well on many types of plastic so these arches will have a bloom of coralline long before many types of rocks or dead coral.

THIS IS THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE 150 REEF AQAURIUM

This side of the 150 gallon reef was planted with sps corals on a fresh cured aragocrete arch several weeks before the other arches were put in the other end of the tank.

It is exciting to harvest the coral covered aragocrete that we planted last year. We often give the finished rocks to our students and then we give them a hammer and a sharp chisel. It is fun to be able to allow them to learn coral propagation on these tank grown rocks.

THIS IS SALLY JO'S THIRD REEF AT 7 WEEKS OLD.

This reef is growing very well and we will soon be harvesting soft corals from the aragocrete arches.
