GEOTHERMAL AQUACULTURE RESEARCH FOUNDATION
This image shows a detailed close-up of the polyps on this purple Sarcophyton. This is a cutting from a beautiful Sarcophyton that Sally Jo and I bought in Baltimore on one of the trips we took to teach at the Smithsonian Institution.

The parent colony of this Sarcophyton still lives in Eddy Postma's 135-gallon reef tank. We have been able to cut the parent colony of this Sarcophyton several times, and even though the original coral cost $135 we have been very happy to own this beautiful animal.

When we remove the cuttings from the original coral we leave part of the crown attached to the stalk. We have found that by not removing the entire top of the coral the parent colony grows back much faster.

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.
