GEOTHERMAL AQUACULTURE RESEARCH FOUNDATION
This image shows a beautiful Sarcophyton that has a large flat crown with an odd green coloration. This Sarcophyton has been cut several times, and the cuttings from it attach to gravel very rapidly.

When we cut this type of Sarcophyton we often remove one-third of the head. By selectively trimming this large flat Sarcophyton we can control the direction of its growth. This Sarcophyton arrived at our foundation as a trade, and we have been able to propagate it and send it to many other hobbyists.

The other corals the this image are a beautiful cream-colored Xenia in the upper left corner and several different Sinularia on the right side. There are two small photosynthetic Gorgonians in the lower left and center part of this picture. You can see that the front lobe of the Sarcophyton is shading several corals, and we will trim it off when we propagate.

The Geothermal Aquaculture Research Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization dependent on sales of quality products and our special Annual Events to support our eduacation programs. These projects sustain our service programs and ongoing research we provide to our Community and the World. 

We are an Idaho Non Profit Organization dedicated to advancing the knowledge of reef keeping. Our live rock aquaculture research has produced many new techniques for sustaining marine life and propagating corals. We are currently growing many species of sps corals, mushrooms, etc. The Foundation is building a genetic bank in Idaho with collections from around the World. We specialize in reef janitors, and have shared this research with many people who need to control algae in land-based live rock aquaculture tanks.
