Garf Grunge Plus™ consists of larger particles about the size of walnuts down to thumbnail size and it is harvesteed from the older tanks.

Garf Grunge Plus™ contains more of the small invertebrates such as the worms, Copepods, Amphipods, and many others such as Brittle stars.

Garf Grunge Plus™ is used to create a cryptic zone in the existing aquarium. This is done by piling the Garf Grunge Plus™ in a back corner. Garf Grunge Plus™ is the finest thing to add to seed the refugeum. This product has been extremely popular and it does a great job of creating a small hiding place called the cryptic zone in the main tank and in the sump.

We use many types of grunge in each reef.

Our newest product is one of the most asked for things that we've had during the years and this is Garf Grunge Bright White™.

Garf Grunge Bright White™ is grown in our grunge tanks using a very fine aragonite sand. It fits really well with modern look of white gravel. There are still a lot of micro invertebrates, and an extremely large number of that bacteria. Garf Grunge Bright White™ has many strains that will not ship in the big bag live sand or wild sand. Garf Grunge Bright White™ is the newest product but it's very very popular, and we will be glad to help you with Your questions when you call.
We use many types of grunge in each reef.

Grunge Light Mud™ is the Best thing to add to mud filters and refugeums.

It consists very fine particles of our Grunge™. We collect it from the square corners of our grow out tanks.

These tanks are 6 foot across, and they have lots and lots of grunge and live sand moving through them. The grunge light from the corners is very small. and it works great in the mud filter or refugeum chamber. We've been shipping this product to people who are starting a refugeum, because the mud that they buy doesn't have anything alive, and there are lots of different organisms that thrive in very fine particulate mud.

We are selling a group of garf.org products called Garf Diversity&trade, and we will be posting the Garf Diversity™ packages for each size reef. You will get the Garf Grunge™, Garf Grunge Plus™l, and the Bag-o-macro Algae™free. You can also choose a live coralline covered live rock and any of Sally Jo's Bag-o-bugs™. These specials start at only 59.00 for a reef aquarium up to 27 gallons.

I decided to get back into the hobby after getting out of it to raise a family. As I started rounding everything up I found a box from garf, which still had the receipt on it. I decided to see what the date was. Aug. 31, 1999.

now that I'm slowly getting set up, I have been checking prices and in 12 years garf still hasn't changed their prices. I'm returning to garf, because they were always there for support, awesome corals, making it affordable and of course Leroy and Sally Jo .
Thanks GARF

HI!
I just wanted to strongly recommend GARF products as a whole, the price and education you guys offer are Unmatched, and your quality always exceeds my expectations. I had originally been concerned as I live in Alaska, but Leroy has gone out of His way to accommodate me and with a little patience we were able to make it work. I wanted to personaly thank you, and sally Joe, for all the work you guys do it's incredible.

Leroy has also taken time to talk with me addressing any concern I might have, I also will be trying out a experiment as in the summer we have a 20 hour light cycle with low temps wondering if this would create ideal growing conditions for coralline algae.

Leroy has been a Blessing to me and their customer service is unmatched by any competitor! I recommend GARF over anyone or any other product thank you so much for all that you do for us and our earth!!!!!!!!!

    Hi guys.

    You don't know me at all but I know you. I started following your website at its very early begginings. I was going through my attic the other day and found stuff I printed up in the mid to late 90's in college. I have a whole three leaf binder made up about coral farming from your site. You got me turned on to reefkeeping and coral farming. I was going to University of Rhode Island and studying aquaculture.

    I remember consulting frantically looking things up on your website in the wee hours of the morning trying to write papers on the economical and enviromental advantages of raising ornamental fish and invertabrates. And this was before the internets were really cool. A step above a green monitor and a dot matrix printer. When 56k dialup was lighting speed (remember when you clicked on something and had to go make a pot of coffee run to the store cuz you ran out of cream and maybe just maybe when you got back the page would be loaded because it had like 5 pictures).

    Anyways I digress. I had four tanks ranging from 55 gals down to 2.5 gals in a 10x10 room. I was raising softies in the 10 gal at the time and perculas in the 55. Lots of great stories about those times but I could go on for hours (including a heater malfunction that cooked the 10gal over a weekend break making the dorm smell like lowtide when I waltzed in on monday).

    Anyways I digress, and life got in the way, I no longer have all the tanks or corals(wish I still did), and I find myself doing something for a living that is about 180degrees from my aquaculture roots but that pays the bills a bit better. The other day after going through some boxes I found my old garf binder it brought back memories so I went over to the more greatly improved Internets and hit the google and poof there you guys are as always with a great site and great info.

    Sorry for the rambling email. I am setting up a 24 gal aquapod soon and going to be visiting this site much more often for info, advice and supplies. I am so glad you guys are still around. Thanks for taking time to read this.
    Sincerely,
    Dan , Ma.

    I have a cousin named David Ewen who used your methods religiously several years ago and swears by them. I've been out the hobby for about 14 years, but just got back into it starting with a BioCube 29 HQI. I set it up at the end of October.

    I hadn't thought about GARF in all those years. In January, I told my cousin (who also got completely out of it) that I had a tank and was setting it up and he reminded me of you guys. I was doing barebottom and decided to re-do it with a plenum. So it's all set up now and I've been ready for the Grunge for about 2 weeks. SOOOO excited!

    I have a dream of building a coral propogation facility here in Vegas. I have the designs and plans in my head and am going to start writing them down. After that, it will just be a matter of funding it, which will probably take years but it's all about having goals, right? :)

    Thanks again LeRoy!

    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,

    Tom Karvonen
