|This slide show presents a new view of Sally Jo's oldest reef tank. This 55 gallon reef tank is now six years old, and all of the corals grew from very small fragments. Sally Jo's Reef is so full of fantastic corals that a bird's eye view is the only way to get an idea of how many there are.
This reef has six - 4 ft. VHO Bulbs, and the SPS corals thrive. The large, sharp tip SPS coral in the top of the photo is a Seriatapora that has lived in this tank for five and one half years. To the left and slightly below the Seriatapora is a beautiful gold and green Acropora from the group that forms digitate clumps. There are two other Acropora is in a lower left of the picture, and there is a beautiful silver tip Xenia in the lower right corner.
Looking at pictures that are taken of the top of the tanks is a good way to see how far the corals are actually placed from each other. Coral has a certain amount of space that it is able to defend, and Sally Jo is constantly trimming and preening her Bonsai Reefs.
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.

|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.|
