The reports coming in from the monitoring stations surrounding our wild reefs is so disheartening, the reality unfolding is that around the world we have lost 1/5 of our wild reefs. Colonies of coral that were hundreds of years old that could tell us the stories of countless pioneers have been completely wiped out.

To:leroy@garf.org
Subject:thanks for the grunge

Leroy,
We received our grunge eight days ago, and already we are seeing crazy things in our tanks. one of our tanks was set up from scratch 6 weeks ago and had little life other than the aragonite that I got from a friend. This tank now has many little critters crawling around after one week, and all of our three tanks are crystal clear like never before.
The virgin tank was in diatom bloom, and was never scrubbed by hand, now is so perfectly clear. Thanks again. I look forward to ordering more stuff later. I was going to order critters, but my wife suggested that I order the grunge. I am glad she did.
Sincerely,
Peter Smith

THIS IS ANOTHER GREAT LETTER FROM LAST WEEK

We now have three types of GARF grunge for only 5.00 per pound.

Be certain to add extra Reef Janitorstm now. The Holiday visitors are coming. You will want your reefs to look great. You also need to replace the lost-in-action Reef Janitorstm with reinforcements because pest algae thrive with the extra food we all tend to feed now that we are home more.

From: Greg King
To: leroy@garf.org
Subject: reef janitors

To GARF
I have had my 75 gallon reef tank set up now for about two years, and was beginning to get very frustrated. It seemed as if the algae blooms were coming very frequently. I was almost to the point of giving up. Then I found mine and my tanks savior "GARF!!!" I have recently purchased a reef janitors pack, and within two weeks my tank looks a million times better. I honestly can not say how many thousands of dollars I have spent trying to control algae in my tank.

The product you advertise and sell is the best ever. My live rock looks live again, the base rock and crushed aragonite has never looked so good. This has to be the very best investment that I have ever made on any aquarium I have ever owned. BTW I also got ten pounds of GARF GRUNGE, exceptionally good stuff. If anyone really wants to see a huge difference in the appearance of their tank, new or old, listen to what these guys have to say.

From: "James D. Stevenson"
To: Leroy@GARF.org
Subject: grunge (it's hardy!)

Dear Leroy,
Just a quick follow-up to an e-mail I sent you a week or two ago. As I'm sure you'll recall (What, you get 300 e-mails a week and you don't instantly recall every one?), I had accidentally put a piece of uncured concrete in my new tank, and cooked the corals when the Ph went to about 8.8 or so, and I was wondering if the grunge was likely to have been blasted too. You will be happy to know that at least some of the stuff in there is alive and doing fine.

I was getting a brown coating (of diatoms, I think) that all of a sudden disappeared yesterday and this morning, and the bed is full of little worms and other crawlies. Must be some seriously hardy stuff. So, in case there's someone who keeps track of that stuff, your grunge can withstand several days of high Ph. The cave rock is now curing in a plastic box in the backyard, and will stay there until the Ph stabilizes, and I'm moving on with the new tank. Thanks again for all the good stuff.

Subject: Love the Grunge!
Thread-Topic: Love the Grunge!
From: "Tom Karvonen"
To: leroy@garf.org

Leroy,
I wanted to send you a short note to let you know just how impressed I am with your GARF Grunge. I have a 120g Reef with a 6" DSB that I originally seeded with a mixture of original and plus last year when I set up the tank. Since then I had to move the tank and in the process lost most of the detritivore life with the exception of some worms.
I tried ordering amphipods and copepods and mini-brittle stars from other vendors in the hope of re-establishing that abundance of life that I had after adding your grunge, but I never had success with that. I ordered a competitors "mud" that was supposed to be superior, it wasn't. So I just wanted to let you know that when I need to recharge my sandbed I'm going straight to good stuff from now on and ordering Grunge from you.
Thanks for all of your support and great service too.
Cordially,

As you can tell by the new pictures on our web site I have been busy designing a new program to reach out to the youngest of heart. Through my artwork we will begin telling the story of the struggle our wild reefs are facing.

The reports coming in from the monitoring stations surrounding our wild reefs is so disheartening, the reality unfolding is that around the world we have lost 1/5 of our wild reefs. Colonies of coral that were hundreds of years old that could tell us the stories of countless pioneers have been completely wiped out.

Today I have a great new book from Sally Jo. This is a complete book about coral farming. The first part of this book can be read to children, so they can share in the families coral farming project.


GARF'S BOOK PAGE you will love this page

I am delighted to share with you that my children's books are completed and ready to share with your families. This first book is an introduction and features the manatees and mermaids their interaction together and an understanding of their habitat. These books are written from the eyes of the manatees but with my heart. Each one shares simple ways that we can all work together to do simple things that will have a positive impact on our World.

It is our sincere hope that by sharing this information, inspiring you to tell your stories so that our children will receive the necessary tools to make decisions that will leave this World in a better place for future generations.

2007 UPDATE - SALLY JO'S NEWEST BULLET PROOF REEF AQUARIUM PAGE

Our new interns just started and it will be the second time GARF will be able to use our new Coral Propagation DVD for their training. This new video has three complete lessons, and the interns will learn about Soft Coral Propagation, Xenia propagation, and Advanced SPS propagation.

LeRoy is making some extra DVDs, and we are looking for a small group of students who wish to learn the newest methods we use to produce the corals we sell on our web site. This group will be our second, extended learning class. The one hour DVDs are only 19.95 so we can help more people SAVE A REEF - BY GROWING THEIR OWN.

Subject:Janitor Pack saved our tank

In March of 2006, I broke down and bought 250 tank janitors for my 125 gallon. Prior to the janitors I had tried stepping up the filtration, and increased water changes, but the green hair algae was out of control. I threw in a lawnmower blenny, sailfin tang, reduced the lighting, and reduced the phosphates. Nothing worked, and I was at the end of the rope.

I pulled out half of the algae covered rock, thinking that the reduced surface area would help. At this point nothing worked, and I was ready to break the tank down and quit, Out of desperation, I pulled all but 3 of the remaining rocks out of the tank, and pressure washed them in the driveway, and threw them back in. ( I realize this is not a recommended procedure), I noticed that even that didn't work, as the algae was starting to grow back.

My brother recommended a janitor pack, so I bought 250 snails, crabs, etc. It has been 10 months, and the tank has been algae free. I highly recommend to everyone, just buy the janitors first, and save yourself the headache, I did notice the janitors were more successful with the algae that was less than 1/2 inch tall. Thank You Leroy for your awesome solution to this 2 year long battle, and saving our tank.

P.S. the Grunge was a nice surprise, it's great stuff.

Subject: Martin and Lisa Wilcox Reef with Argocrete
Leroy and Sally,
Hot off the press are the first two pictures of our reef using some of the Argocrete pieces that we cast.
The casting was so much fun but took a little time to get the hang of it!
We havent put on the backing and completed all the aesthetics, but it's a start!

Our reef janitors seem to be enjoying their new environment.
They appear to like the few pieces of live rock we have as well.
We must say that it has been wonderful learning about reefs from your website.

Sally and Leroy, we wish you the best!

MISSION STATEMENT TO PROVIDE THE CITIZENS OF IDAHO AND THE WORLD A SHOWCASE COLLECTION OF AQUATIC PLANTS, FISH, REEF ANIMALS AND PRODUCTS. TO STIMULATE INTEREST IN, APPRECIATION FOR AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF THESE COLLECTIONS. TO BE IMPLEMENTED THROUGH PLANT RECORDS, PUBLIC DISPLAYS, COLLECTIONS, APPLIED RESEARCH, PUBLICATIONS, INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS, AND SALES OF QUALITY PRODUCTS. 

Much of our research is being conducted in the field of reef farming. We are conducting these studies both in marine aquariums and in the ocean. Reef aquarium research is being conducted by members of the foundation both in the U.S. and in several other countries. We have been researching the best ways to control algae in reef aquariums for several years. Our REEF JANITORS are becoming the most popular algae eaters in the reef hobby. 
We also supply expert advice on algae control for marine aquariums, wetlands and backyard ponds.
We provide quality educational programs to students here in Idaho and online. We have marine aquarium tours that are attended by hundreds of students each year. We are available to speak at aquarium clubs.
Our students propagate many of the invertebrates that we sell. Our collection of reef animals is growing very fast. You can join our research team by filling out one of the data collection forms on our pages. We hope you will print these pages for the use of your friends who are not yet on the web. 


We use natural algae control methods for all systems. 
Not only are they effective they are beautiful!!!

The majority of our on-going research is dedicated to live rock farming. Currently we are propagating marine life for both ornamental and medical research. Please visit the other pages and find out how you can join our research team using your home aquarium. We will continue to provide the most current data on reef farming for both education and profit. 



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.
