|This beautiful group of Zoanthid is growing next to a large polyp stony coral called Pectina. It is important watch corals that are placed next to the Zoanthids to learn how the colony reacts. Some corals will be stung by the Zoanthids, and some corals can sting the Zoanthid colonies.
This colony looks like it's all one color when you first look at it, but on closer inspection it is easy to see there are several colors. Sally Jo has taken over fifty thousand digital images of the corals here at GARF. Over twelve thousand of these pictures have been catalogued with code names that allows us to search the data base for any kind of coral, any particular date, and we can also find the corals that grow in any tank.
Sally Jo's new digital camera has 5.2 mega-pixals, and this allows me to blow these pictures up to almost 29 in. wide. I have a 21 in. monitor so is very easy to examine the details of the colonies of corals. If you have the ability to produce digital photographs you will find it helps in planning future propagation of the corals.
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.
