|This is a picture showing how I stack the reef plugs containing cuttings to form a colony. You can see in the center of this picture a light-colored Reef Plugtm with the pink and green Montipora cuttings that have been glued to an upside-down Reef Plugtm. By applying a bit of GARF reef glue under water to the plug that the snail is sitting on I will be able to mount another upside down reef plug that has glue on the top of it. It is a very simple process to glue up to eight reef plugs on top of each other.
In the previous image and in the two images following this one you can see how I glued three more reef plugs containing cuttings to the top of this Reef Plugtm.
I have found that it is easy to make more room in most reef tanks by adding a stack of reef plugs. One of the most important concerns in decorating a reef is having corals placed so they do not shade other corals or restrict the water flow too much. When I am teaching a class I often say that vertical real estate in the reef is almost free.
When you stack a number of reef plugs together they are able to utilize space that goes to waste and they do not cast much of a shadow. As you will see in the following images it does not take long before coral and coralline algae disguise how these stacks are made.
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.
