|In this image you will see four different plate forming Montiporas. The two that we will concentrate on in the short slide show are the bright green one and the orange one. While I have been doing research on Montiporas I have noticed an interesting way that these Montiporas fight for territory.
Their main strategy includes over growing competing corals and rapidly expanding their base plate. This leads us to and interesting display possibility because two competing Montiporas can live together, and they often form beautiful combined colonies.
These fragments were glued to a stack of reef plugs, and they have spread out to form an entire circle of plates of different colors that radiate out from the plugs. When two different strains of Montiporas first grow into close contact there can be a slight loss of tissue, but they often adapt and continued to grow.
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.
Use this site to solve your reef aquarium algae problems, and help support our research!!!
|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.|
