|This is an older image taken about four years ago. Sally Jo's first reef had many more soft corals and Xenias then. We were excited to find this picture when we were searching our data base, because it shows a coral called 'Question Mark' shortly after we received it. This Montipora is different than any we have seen, and I have not been able to identify it. I will show you a picture later in the slide show all of what it looks like this semester.
This Montipora is surrounded by at least seven different, distinct Xenia. All of these different Xenias have been propagated dozens of times, and they have all morphed into extremely hardy captive raised brood stock.
We are certain that the genetic code in Xenias has the information needed for these corals to adapt to a variety of changing environments. This genetic variability combined with symbiotic recombination in captivity allows these corals to adapt to life in the aquarium very well. We have documented many times that each successive clone becomes more hardy, faster growing, and easier to ship.
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.|
