|This image shows just one corner of Sally Jo's oldest 55 gallon reef tank. The sharp pointed, white tip SPS coral in the lower left of the picture is a Seriatapora. This coral has been in this tank for 5 1/2 years. The Zoanthids above it are the original colony of the purple and red polyp Zoanthids that are now in all the other show tanks at the foundation. Next to the Zoanthids is a cutting of the blue tip Acropora. You can see all the different types of Xenia growing across the back of the glass.
How many different species of coral are in this one picture? Remember this is just a small part of one 55 gallon tank with fluorescent lighting.
This image should dispel the myth that you cannot grow sps corals and soft corals together. Six years of continuous images of this tank in magazines and books and on our web site should convince anyone that you do not need metal halide lighting to grow wonderful SPS corals.
It is important remember one of the things that we always say at the Geothermal Aquaculture Research Foundation about reef aquarium keeping .
There are hundreds of ways to do it exactly right and only a few mistakes - have fun.
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.
