This is the 80 gallon AragocreteTM reef that is 5 months old. The sun was behind this tank and it lit up the inside of the cave rock showing our Aiptasia eating Copperband. This is one of several Copperbands that we move around the lab to eat Aiptasia. When they have cleaned a reef aquarium we put a jar with an Aiptasia rock in it in the tank. The fish then swims into the jar and we move it. Many times the fish will eat the first Aiptasia it finds in the new aquarium.

ALL OF THESE ROCKS ARE HAND MADE. THE CUTTINGS ARE FROM SALLY JO'S REEF AQUARIUMS.

This reef has 1 Maxi-Jet 1000 powerhead and a heater. There two 4 foot 40 watt and one 175 watt halide inch bulbs. There is no skimmer. The reef is 5 months old. Notice the coralline on the AragocreteTM cave rock. This tank was started with 2 four foot 40 watt lights. Sally Jo will add more lights and equipment until this is a sps coral reef. This new way of starting reefs with low light increases the coralline growth and limits the growth of hair algae.
