|This first picture shows one of the many Lemnalia species that are now growing in the predatory reef systems at GARF. The Lemnalia are an easy to grow group of soft corals. Most of the Lemnalia range from yellow to burnt orange color, and they're very easy to propagate. These corals have numerous hard spicules and they are one of the few soft corals that can be super glued directly to the live rock. The Lemnalia in this picture has been cut several times during the last year. Lemnalia are fast growing and hardy, and they make an excellent first choice if you're starting to work with predatory soft corals. Lemnalia are very closely related to Capnella and Nephthea.
The second picture shows one of the many Copper Band Butterflies that we use at GARF for Aiptasia control. These fish are an important addition to any tank that will receive zooplankton and phytoplankton. Copper Band Butterflies from Indonesia readily accept Aiptasia as the main part of their diet. We keep a Copper Band Butterfly in almost every reef at the Foundation.
FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS WE HAVE WORKED VERY HARD TO PURCHASE, TRADE, AND SAVE AS MANY TYPES OF CORALS AS WE CAN.
We are having a special on all of the coral cuttings. WHEN YOU PURCHASE 5 AT THE REGULAR PRICE OF $100 WE WILL GIVE YOU TWO FREE CORALS!. We will continue to provide the most current data on reef farming for both education and profit.
