GEOTHERMAL AQUACULTURE RESEARCH FOUNDATION
This beautiful, giant Protopalythoa grows very well with Zoanthids. Protopalythoa are often found growing in colonies of Zoanthids in nature. You have to be careful because polyps such as these large red ones can overshadow and dominate almost any Zoanthid unless it is very hardy and rapid growing.

You can propagate Protopalthoa by removing one polyp at a time from the stalk with a sharp pair of scissors. These individual polyps are then placed in a shallow tray that contains a aragonite gravel and seashells. We use a product called CaribSea sea floor.

A few weeks after you have placed the individual polyps in the gravel they will attach to pieces of gravel. These pieces of gravel can then be glued to larger rocks.

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.
