PICTURE OF THE WEEK


REEF PICTURES SPONSORED BY REEF JANITORS

SPS CORALS GROWING IN SALLY JO'S 55 GALLON REEF ARE GETTING MORE AND MORE COLOR EACH MONTH. AS WE ADD NEW STRAINS TO OUR COLLECTION WE ARE STARTING TO GET MORE BLUE AND PURPLE SPS CORALS.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING NEEDED TO GROW COLORED SPS CORALS IS GOOD WATER QUALITY. WHEN THE WATER IS TOO NUTRIENT RICH THE BROWN ALGAE THAT GROWS INSIDE OF THE CORALS GROW STRONGER. THESE ALGAE CAN BLOCK THE MORE DESIRED COLORS SO THE CORAL APPEARS BROWN.

This new coral has the nicest purple color of any Montipora type coral we have recieved this semester. We will soon be fragging this coral so we can move it into some of the newer SPS reefs we are setting up. The Middle reef in Sally Jo's office will soon have 4 - four foot VHO bulbs and 2- four foot 40 watt bulbs. It will fun to watch this reef become a SPS coral brood stock reef. We will add an overflow and a sump so we can move the skimmer out of the reef. Many of these corals will be fragged as soon as the lights are installed.

THIS VIEW SHOWS THE MIDDLE OF THE REEF. YOU CAN SEE HOW THE SMALL FRAGS HAVE GROWN INTO HEADS DURING THE LAST YEAR. MANY FRAGS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS REEF EACH WEEK SO THE CORALS DO NOT TOUCH.

SALLY JO HATES IT WHEN SHE HAS A LAND SLIDE IN THIS REEF, BUT I LOVE IT, BECAUSE I GET BOWLS OF FRAGS AS SHE RESTACKS HER BABIES :)

THIS PICTURE SHOWS HOW MUCH WATER FLOW SALLY JO HAS IN THIS 55 GALLON REEF.

This tank has 4 Maxi-Jet 1000s in the tank and two more powerheads in the sump. One of the Maxi-Jets is on a timer that turns it on and off every 1/2 hour. As the reef grows it is VERY important that you increase the flow because the corals tend to stop the water from moving.
