OUR FIRST CORAL ORDER FORM
GARF is looking for some more soft corals that look like these fine Sarcophytons! This strain has bright green polyps and a pink body. They seem to be very hardy and we are certain that they are different from all of the corals that have been tested for cancer cures. GARF will soon make this coral available to Dr. Lake so he can extract toxins from it. We need to find more strains of this coral so we can use them as key species that are easy to track. Many of the strains we now grow look very much alike. We need a wide variety of strains so we can find out if there are different chemicals available from different types of soft corals.
|Once the animal is glued like you see in this picture it does not take them long to grow over the glue and become a healthy tank mate with your other corals. You can hardly tell that this animal was a cutting made by our staff only a month ago. If you have a rare green polyped one like the one seen in these pictures it would be a great asset to the hobby to propagate this animal and share it with others in the hobby.
We will always trade for this type of live stock. There was a time not so long ago that these animals were very hard to find in the hobby. Due to their adaptability we find them in many hobbyist tanks. They are one of the corals we recommend for the beginners and even the experts keep these specimens in their tanks.
|We are seeing more and more varieties of this animal and are keeping over 26 different kinds very successfully at the Foundation. This animal likes its temperature to be no greater than 82 degrees. When purchasing your new Sarcophyton make sure you give it a couple of days to extend it's polyps fully. This will happen for the most part every time you move this animal. It is a natural defense mechanism to retract it's polyps when bothered.
There is absolutely no reason to take these animals from the ocean any more. They are so easy to propagate. The rare colors of these corals will be a good product for ocean based aquaculture. The only reason I could agree upon purchasing one that comes from the wild is if it is one that has never been in the hobby and can be shared with other hobbyist. These animal have a leather feel to them and are not slimy like the other soft corals that need to be netted when trying to get them to attach.
FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS WE HAVE WORKED VERY HARD TO PURCHASE, TRADE, AND SAVE AS MANY TYPES OF CORALS AS WE CAN.
