Arrow Crabs
No Limit Special!!!!
Stenorhynchus seticornis

Description: The Arrow Crab with its long body and arrow like head is also known as the Spider Crab. An extremely hardy species that will be a long time inhabitant, different species are found throughout the world but the species we offer is a well known caribbean invertebrate that is one of the BEST reef scavengers ot there.

They will consume all decaying or left over foods, as well as prey on bristle and flat worms which makes them highly sought after for nuisance control in any reef aquarium. If the tank is extremely clean where insufficient food may be a problem, place a sheet of green algae in the reef tank with a rubber band around a piece of rock.

Found in segments of the reef where there are crevices or tiny caves, the arrow crab lays out its decleration that the area is its home. The Arrow Crab has eight spider-like legs and has a head that is exceptionally pointed at the tip. The legs of an Arrow Crab can be more than three times its body length. The body of an Arrow Crab is composed of many colors. The whole body is covered in a golden-brown color, with white, brown, or gold stripes running along the crab's body. The ends of the legs are dark violet. As the Arrow Crab grows it will shed an outer layer of its skin called the exoskeleton. Can you breed these long legged beauties? Breeding Arrow Crabs in the aquarium is not generally successful. Larvae are free-swimming and hatch in about two weeks. An interesting tidbit to know: Arrow crabs can and will easily loose a leg. But no worry, they grow them back easily and every time the exoskeleton is reskinned the reformed leg will get longer and longer.

In a 50 gallon or less tank only one should be kept , but beyond that a good rule of thumb would be one per 50 gallonsalthough multiple arrow crabs can be kept in larger tanks with lots of rock work.

  Coral Banded Shrimp
No Limit Special!!!!
Stenopus hispidus

Description:Coral Banded Shrimp are very popular among reefkeepers due to their exquisite coloring and active nature. They are a beautiful addition to the reef with candycane striped bodies, multiple pairs of bright white antennae, and 3 pairs of miniature claws. They are very active and enjoy lots of live rock to scour for detritus, and will hunt and kill pest bristle worms. They are also active "cleaner shrimp". Fish will swim close and allow the shrimp to pick parasites from the flesh. They will also feed on uneaten fish food that falls to the bottom such as frozen foods, pellet and flake. They are reef-safe and only one should be kept per tank, unless they are a confirmed mated pair in which case the pair can be kept in the same tank. Hardy, but must be acclimated slowly to avoid any salinity and/or pH shock. 

Feeding: Coral Banded Shrimp shrimp are omnivores that will eat anything meaty and some greens. They will graze from one end to another end of the tank on microalgae's. But upon introducing a few pellets or a tasty morsel of some sort they head straight for it. Generally any kind of sinking pellet will do. Iodine supplements are a recommendation for all reef aquariums containg shrimp.

Level of Care: Easy

Reef Compatibility:Excellent

Acclimation Time: Warning: Inadequate or improper acclimation will result in death through what is called salinity shock. Drip acclimation must occur over a period of AT LEAST 3 hours to ensure best chances for a successful transition.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/2" to 2"

Note: If your Coral Banded Shrimp loses one of its arms or claws, don't worry. They regenerate in a short time, the next time they molt. This is a common occurance with all shrimp and is a defensive practice so an attacking predator will leave with an arm rather than a shrimp.

 Sally Lightfoot Crab
No Limit Special!!!!
Percnon gibbesi

Description:The Sally Lightfoot Crab, also known as the Nimble Spray, Short, or Urchin Crab. With their brown body and orange to yellow rings on their legs, Sally Lightfoots are a reef-safe crab, very active algae eaters and enjoy feeding off of algae on rockwork. Because of their flatness, they can easily keep themselves hidden under rocks and coral. They prefer a strong current and will require an aquarium with large amounts of rock work where it can hide and scavenge for detritus.

In a 50 gallon or less tank only one should be kept , but beyond that a good rule of thumb would be one per 50 gallonsalthough multiple arrow crabs can be kept in larger tanks with lots of rock work.

Food and diet:The Sally Lightfoot Crab is best kept in a reef-style aquarium where it will have ample supplies of algae to eat. If there is insufficient algae to eat, their diet must be supplemented with dried seaweed.

Sand Cleaning Sea Stars
No Limit Special!!!!

This peaceful, reef safe omnivore will effectively clean even the largest home aquarium of detritus and left over food.
Description: The Sand Sifting Sea Star efficiently consumes mass amounts of detritus and uneaten food. A great addition to any reef tank, this nocturnally active sea star will move large amounts of sand as it burrows into the substrate in its search for food. Since it is slower moving than most fish, the Sand Sifting Sea Star should not be housed with natural predators, including Puffers. Like other invertebrates, the Sand Sifting Sea Star is very intolerant of sudden changes in oxygen levels, salinity, and pH and cannot tolerate copper-based medications. To successfully acclimate new specimens to your aquarium, use the drip acclimation method and never expose the Sand Sifting Sea Star to air while handling.
Diet and Feeding:The Sand Sifting Sea Star should be actively fed a variety of fish foods into the sand. Otherwise, this voracious feeder will quickly clean your aquarium of detritus and left over food, and then starve, and eventually begin to decay.
Notes: Starfish are intolerant of sudden changes in oxygen levels, salinity and pH of the water, and cannot tolerate copper-based medications. Extra care and time should be taken whenever acclimating this animal.The drip acclimation method is highly recommended for all Sea Stars due to their intolerability to changes in water chemistry.

Colored Pin Cushion Urchins
No Limit Special!!!!
Description: The Nicely Colored Pincushion Urchins we ship are beautiful colorations that not only clean your tank of algae at night but are attractive to look at too! We get purples, Lime Greens, and we even get deep reds sometimes. The Colored Pincushion is a smaller Urchin that has pinlike protruding spines. They grow to only 2 inches in nature. Urchins are excellent algae eatersl and like rockwork that they can crawl and feed on. A great choice for the aquarium. They will use a series of tube feet on their underside to move about the tank in search of algae and detritus. They will scour the rockwork, glass and sandbed. The spines serve as their defense mechanism from predators. All Urchins are nocturnal and do most of their grazing at night. During the day they will usually stay stationary on the aquarium glass, or on the rockwork. Urchins are completely reef-safe.

Food and diet: Urchins are best kept in a reef-style aquarium where if inadequate algae exists they should be fed dried green seaweed sheets.

Totally peaceful toward all other tank mates.
Great for keeping all your sand clean, even Red Slime algae)!
Description: The Tiger Sand Conch is a hardy member of the Strombidae family. Despite their name, they are peaceful toward other tank mates. They are excellent sand sifters, and are very beneficial in the reef aquarium. As they burrow and dig through the aquarium substrate, they clean and aerate the bottom.
Terrific for Cleaning Tanks with that ugly red or brown slime algae often seen. A hardy algae eaters , one of the few that will rid a tank of slime algae, they also love the brown diatoms found on the surface of live sand beds. They will stir and clean upper layers of the sand bed. One of the best reef tank detritivores. As they burrow and dig through the aquarium substrate they clean and aerate the bottom. Tiger Sand Conch will do an excellent job of cleaning the live sand in your reef tank, where you don't have to sift it around ever! It'll go to sleep at night, but once the lights come on it goes back to cleaning in no time and will go on for the rest of the day with no breaks. Watching it clean with what looks like an anteater type snout is very entertaining as they move it everywhere to feed. It will always stay on the bottom of your tank, won't bother any invertebrates or corals whatsoever. Once you add these to your tank, you won't ever regret it because they make a unique and different addition. I highly recommend these for their usefulness.
Recommended minimum tank size: 10 gallon or larger They do best when kept in a live sand bed.
Food and diet: They can be fed algae pellets, if they can't find enough natural food. 1 Conch per 20 gallons of water.

Astrea Snails
No Limit Special!!!!
(Astraea tecta)
Description:Astrea snails are an excellent addition to any reef tank and are 100% reef safe. They will not harm any other living creatures and will not disturb the decoration or landscaping. They are very beneficial in any setup as they are good algae eaters and will eat most algae types including hair algae, cyanobacteria and diatoms.Astrea snails are easily identified based on the characteristic sharp conical shell circled by a large ridge.

According to Julian Sprung's Reef Aquarium Manual , Volume One, Astrea snails are the ideal snail to be placed in your aquarium as soon as ammonia and nitrite levels reach acceptable levels (less than 1 ppm). One of the best snails for controlling Diatom 's, (light brown/red algae), Green Algae Blooms and Dark Purple/Red Slime algae . Introduced as soon as
possible to new aquarium, these snails effectively limit the development of all micro algae. Ref: The Reef Aquarium.

Astrea snails are best kept in well established aquariums and are hardy once they have acclimatized themselves to their new surrounding. They are like all snails sensitive towards even small changes in water values and it is therefore important to acclimatize them slowly to a tank using drop acclimatization (allow this process to take at least two hours). They are also sensitive to high nitrate levels and copper. Even small amounts of copper can prove fatal for Astrea snails and copper based medications can not be used in a tank containing Astrea or other snails.

Description:Nerite snails are an excellent addition to any reef tank and are 100% reef safe. They will not harm any other living creatures and will not disturb the decoration or landscaping. These eager eaters desire several types of micro algae commonly found in the home aquarium.They are very beneficial in any setup as they are good at the ellimination of all cyano bacteria (red slime) and all bacteria which comes from uneaten food or fish waste. Nerites also are excellent at cleaning any type of algae film found on the glass, rock or sand. Nerite snails are easily identified based on the characteristic striped shell and round shape.

Nerite Snails are very hardy and will survive a long time in the home aquarium. Unlike other snails these guys will NOT die by flipping over, they can easily flip themselves upright when needed! At a maximum size of around 1 inch, these outstanding cleaners are found on a number of reefs scattered throughout the Indo-Pacific region.

Description: Green Emerald Crabs are reef-safe algae eaters and an excellent addition to your cleaner crew. They are one of the few inverts that will eat nuisance bubble algae which makes them very popular among reef keepers. It will also feed on uneaten meaty foods and many of the types of nuisance algae found in reef aquariums. Its distinct, flat shiny green body and hairy legs easily identify the Emerald Mithrax Crab. They have dull tipped claws that they use to pick various types of algae from the rockwork. Native to the reefs of the Caribbean, the Emerald Mithrax Crab is nocturnal and hide in caves and amongst rock and coral during the day. In the home aquarium, it requires a well-established aquarium with plenty of rockwork and hiding places.

Food and diet: supplement their diet with dried seaweed and chopped meaty foods, such as shrimp, and/or a quality pellet fish food.

  Flame Scallops
No Limit Special!!!!
Description: Besides being interesting to look at in your reef aquarium, Flame Scallops are very beneficial as well, by helping you keep your water clean by lowering Nitrates as they feed. The flame scallop or rough fileclam, Lima scabra, is a marine bivalve mollusc in the family Limidae. Although their name would suggest otherwise, flame scallops have no relation to scallops, besides their exterior. Flame scallops have a rough outer shell with a red mantle. Surrounding the mantle are red and white tentacles. The gills are used for respiration and filtration.The flame scallop's vibrant red color is due to the large amount of carotenoids found within their body. Flame scallops can reach a maximum size of about 3 inches long. When the Flame Scallops senses danger it simply pushes its valves together to propel titself away from the dangerous situation using water to create a jet impulse.

Diet: The flame scallops eats by filtering the sea water. During the consumption process, flame scallops sift and sort through the sea water with their gills to determine what is appropriate for ingestion. In an aquarium flame scallops require excellent water quality and either frequent water changes or the addition of an invertebrate food containing phytoplancton is recommended.

 Extra Large Hawaiian Feather Dusters
Sabellastarte sp.
Hawaiian Feather Duster
Description:Easy to keep , great for beginner's, the Hawaiian Feather Duster is known as the king of the feather dusters. They have the nicest fan-shaped crowns, (radiole's). The radiole may be up to 7 inches in diameter, and brightly colored. The Feather Duster uses the radiole to filter out small floating organisms, which it directs toward its mouth, located at the center of the crown. It protects its segmented body by secreting a parchment-like tube to cover itself. When it is disturbed, it can quickly pull in its radiole into the tube. If it is severely stressed, it will discard its crown, growing it back later.The Feather Duster is usually found in the coral rubble at the base of the reef aquarium, with some of the rubble being incorporated into its parchment-like tube.

Diet: supplemental feeding of phytoplankton and liquid organic foods should be provided.

  Hard Tube Coco Worms
Protula bispiralis

A great addition to any reef tank. Does well in any lighting or water flow.

Reef Compatability: These hard tube coco worms secretes a calcareous tube approximately ½ inch in diameter and 5”-8” long. The tubes come bent in all sorts of shapes. All Coco Worms require proper calcium levels of 400-450 ppm in order to grow their tubes.Coco worms use their radioles, or crowns, to filter bacteria and particulate matter from the water. When disturbed the Coco Worm can retract quickly into its tube and close its operculum to shut the top of its tube for safety.

When placing Coco Worms in the aquarium you may bury them in the sand with the crown end of the tube protruding from the sand, or stick them in a hole in the rocks with the crown end facing outward. If they are retracted and you don’t know which end is which lay them on the sand bed until they open and then place them into position.

The Hard Tube Coco Worm will require certain supplements tand parameters to grow and flourish. The addition of calcium is required and supplemental feedings of marine snow, phytoplankton, and/or foods for filter feeders. Waterchemistry is crucial. The hard tube coco worm requires proper aquarium alkalinity, proper calcium levels. Hard tube coco worms are intolerant of poor water quality and copper-based medications.

 Colored Cluster Feather Dusters
Bispira brunnea

A colorful mass of tiny feather dusters.
Description:A beautiful addition to any reef tank. Very hardy (no need to worry about keeping these), may be kept under virtually any light conditions.They grow as a mass of individual small tubeworms, sometimes totaling over 100 in a single clump. Their parchment-like tubes will adhere to bits of rock. This helps to anchor the clump, which will usually be found in a shaded area of the reef. In the reef aquarium, they will require space under an overhanging rock or coral, with a gentle current delivering their planktonic meals. Since they need plankton in their diet, they will do best in a mature reef aquarium. Their combined mass of colorful radioles will filter out the available floating plankton, but can also be withdrawn into the parchment tubes if alarmed, and they are easily alarmed. If they become continually frightened or subjected to poor water quality, they may discard their radioles (fan tentacles). They will be re-grown only under proper conditions. Their mass of tubes are somewhat delicate, so care should be taken while transporting them. They should not be housed with predatory fish, serpent stars, urchins or any other invertebrate that may break them apart.
Diet: supplemental feeding of phytoplankton and liquid organic foods should be provided.

 Decorator Sponge Crabs
Great disguise protects this friend from the sea!
Description: By carrying sponge and other items on their backs make sponge crabs look somewhat comical, but is an effective form of protection. They cover themselves with items like ocean sponge, little pieces of rock and shell, pieces of marine plant, and other items it can use as camouflage to keep itself in stealth mode. With the same intentions, in the reef aquarium the sponge crab will gather whatever it finds and likes. It will find pieces of plant or algae, pieces of coral such as living polyps and other soft corals it finds, to cover itself.
While Sponge Crabs typically have sponges on their backs, they will sometimes harvest tunicates or even coral polyps and other soft coral for camouflage. By doing this they may cause harm to some soft or polyp corals, but often actually promote the propogation of the carried corals throughout the reef aquarium. Best suited for a reef aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding and food. This species as with all crustacean species should not be kept with species that will eat crustaceans, such as triggerfish and puffers.
Diet: As with most all crabs, the Sponge Crab is a scavenger that will eat most any meaty food. The diet of the Sponge Crab should include meaty foods such as frozen brine or mysis shrimp, mussels or pieces of fish. This species will also eat any foods that get by the fish in the aquarium, making them good for keeping the aquarium free of excess and decaying food stuffs.

 Live MacroAlgae Saltwater Reef Tank Refugium Ulva  
Aquacultured Ulva Lettuce Algae
Ulva sp

Add both vital nutrients and nescessary food to the marine environment.
No reef or community tank should be without it.
This is a small genus of marine and brackish water green algae. It is edible and is often called 'Sea Lettuce'. Grown outdoors in open water systems. An air - generated method of tumbling the algae in large vats is employed to culture them. They are not connected to any system containing fish so as to avoid possible parasite contamination. There are multiple uses for macroalgaees in marine aquariums. The most common use is for feeding purposes. Herbivorous fish, such as Tangs, love to eat fresh algae. It contains the natural nutrition to help prevent Head and Lateral Line Erosion (HLLE), a common long-term care problem with Angelfish and Tangs. It is also know to contain Beta-carotine, an immune system stimulator. Another use is in reef tank refugiums and algae scrubbers. Here the algae absorbs excess nutrients, such as nitrates and phosphates, in the tank and produces oxygen. In addition, it helps remove heavy metals and neutralize's toxins. Ulva and other macroalgaes also provide a pH buffer and produce chemicals which protect the skin, intestines, and gills of aquarium fish. That's an alwful lot of help!It also helps support numbers of small shrimp and other microfauna providing biodiversity. Finally macroalgaes can be used simply as an ornamental algae in a reef tank to add beauty and diversity to the reef structure. In addition, it helps remove heavy metals and neutralize's toxins. Macroalgae's generally require about 8 hours of light daily to continue to grow well. This can be either flourescent or pc's. Their photosynthesis produces oxygen and will also increase the pH.

  Live MacroAlgae Saltwater Reef Tank Refugium Gracillaria  
Aquacultured
Chaetomorpha

Aquacultured = No Pesky Pests are along for the ride!
Excellent addition for Water Quality Management.
Chaetomorpha Macro Algae, Chaeto, pronounced "kay-toe", is a great way to naturally turn the nitrogenous compounds of your tank into plant food!!! Chaetomorpha Algae, also known as Spaghetti Algae , is an excellent macro algae for refugiums. Your Chaetomorpha algae recieved will be filled with tons of amphipods and copepods. Macro algae is a great way to "go green" in your aquarium. Reduce water changes by quickly dropping your nitrate and phosphate levels , it will increase the dissolved Oxygen levels in your system and increase overall health of your system the natural way. Color forms include varying shades of green, light green, and a yellowish green. It is well known for its excellent benefits for use in wet / dry sump areas, main tanks and refugiums for marine aquaria.

How do I do it? Chaetomorpha Algae removes both phosphates and nitrates from the water. To increase the amount of nutrients this algae exports, use moderate to high lighting and keep it in an area of high water flow. The waste by-products of life, along with the light you provide for photosynthesis, will help the chaetomorpha increase in size on a regular basis. Each cell grows end to end, creating long, stiff strands. It grows in filamentous clumps, resembling a ball of fishing line. You can "prune" it and throw it away--or you can compact it for even greater nutrient absorption.

If you have a refugium, just throw this clump like Brillo pad in there and it stays together fairly well. You can also put it into a mesh bag for use in your main tank. There are many different ways you can contain the chaeto in your main tank all the while providing great hiding spots for the tiny "critters" in your tank. This algae is fast growing and is not palatable to herbivorous species such as Surgeon fish (Tangs) so it won't be eaten up if left in the main tank.

How much do I need? How much should I get? Well there is only 832 different variables that could be taken into account, if you'd like to go over all of them, feel free to contact us. But to keep it simple we recommend if you have a 40 gallon tank or smaller with a mild nitrate problem(20-30ppm) go with at least 1/4 lb.. if you have a 90 gallon tank with a mild nitrate problem(20-30ppm) go with at least 1/2 lb.. You could go smaller if you are patient and in no hurry to take care of the excess nutrients, or you could go larger if you ave a larger nitrate problem, hate doing water changes, or would like to see your nitrate issue go away more quickly. After weighing and bag, a small amount of salt water is then added directly to the bag to insure enough moisture for shipping.

To increase the amount of nutrients this algae exports, use moderate to high lighting and keep it in an area of high water flow. It should ideally be tumbled in an algae filter. This algae is sold by the bag and will arrive in a dense mat. Your copepods and amphipods will love this stuff. It is what they eat!

A small bag of live sand containing copepods, amphipods as well as beneficial worms. The amount is small , just enough to jump start your refugium.

NOTE: Sometimes a macro algae may be unavailable, so a different beneficial macro algae will be substituted in the Macro Algae Kit.

 Mermaids Fan Plant
 
Green Plants are Excellent for Water Quality Management
Description: The Mermaid's Fan plant, a green calcareous algae found throughout the Atlantic Oceans in the Caribbean. It is used as a decorative plant in the marine reef aquarium and also in refugiums. These plants grow out of the substrate and form beautiful Fan Shaped leaves. They are calcareous algae that deposit limestone (calcium carbonate) in their tissues. The Mermaid's Fan plant is generally hardy in the right conditions. These plants help reduce excess nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates in the marine aquarium.

Most herbivorous fish and invertebrates will not normally eat this plant. Plant the Mermaids Fan Plant in your substrate in a well-lit location in either your aquarium or in a refugium.

This plant will benefit from the regular addition of trace elements and calcium.

 Shaving Hair Brush Plants
 
Green Plants are Excellent for Water Quality Management
Description: The Shaving Brush Plant , also known as the Painter's Brush Plant grows in shallow water in the sand. It has a central stalk with many long thin green brushlike leaves, which gives it the appearance of a shaving brush or paint brush.Most herbivorous fish and invertebrates will not normally eat this plant. Plant the Shaving Brush in your substrate in a well-lit location in either your aquarium or in a refugium.

The use of the Shaving Brush Plantfor filtration in a saltwater aquarium, particularly for helping to reduce and control nitrates is not a new concept. However, this is changing because more and more aquarists are looking for a "natural" method of filtration for their aquariums, Shaving Brush Plant are drawing lots of attention. Fern Plants not only have the ability to absorb nitrates, but phosphates and other organics as well. In fact, they remove organics so well from the water that they act as a replacement for a protein skimmer. When using Shaving Brush Plant you will notice your protein skimmer working less and less all the time. The more they grow, the more they absorb the excess organics in your water, and the skimmer has nothing to remove and becomes obsolete. If you are a naturalist and don't want to have to use chemical additives or compounds to reduce and control nitrates in your aquarium, this is a very effective filtration method to consider. Plant the Shaving Brush Plant in your substrate in a well-lit location in either your aquarium or in a refugium. This plant will benefit from the regular addition of trace elements.

Halimeda Plant

Green Plants are Excellent for Water Quality Management 
Description: Halimeda sp. thrives much in the same way as Corraline Algae in your fish tank. It incorporates a hard calcium carbonate skeleton within its living tissue. Because of this hard coating, Halimeda has a natural protection from predation. Halimeda grows in many parts of the world. Also known as Money Plant, Halimeda is made of a number of bladed sections that connect end-to-end to form a continuous strand. This low-maintenance plant does not require the pruning maintenance of other Marine Plants and does better when left to grow. It is tolerant of a variety of lighting and water conditions, but does not typically thrive if higher nitrates or phosphates are present. As a calcareous plant, it does grow relatively slowly in comparison to Caulerpa-family plants. Halimeda makes an excellent decorative saltwater aquarium addition.

Management:Macroalgae such as Halimeda, Caulerpa, and other large celled algaes are valuable additions to a saltwater aquarium. Algaes and all photosynthetic creatures serve two important roles in the ecosystem of the oceans and aquariums. Light provides the energy for plants (and zooxanthellae) to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen and sugars, making it a great food source for tangs, angels, and other herbaceous animals. Secondly, macroalgae reduce the available levels of phosphates and nitrites/nitrates, an excellent form of natural filtration.

Silver Quill Gorgonian
Muricea laxa
Silver Quill Gorgonian
Description:The Silver Quill Gorgonian is common among the reefs of the Caribbean and grows in a bushy, but still tree-like fashion. The branches are silver-green in appearance and have a bumpy texture when the polyps are not expanded. The polyps of this gorgonian are very small and golden in color, and are often expanded during the daytime. A slow grower, it is hardier than many of its counterparts and will add to your reef aquarium’s diversity. Under lower lighting the gorgonian grows outward, more bushier. Given more bright light the Silver Quill grows more upright. Thic coral does very well with no direct feeding, but will show significant growth when target fed Phytoplankton.

Management:The Silver Quill is peaceful, but it should be given adequate space away from neighboring corals or anemones. Underwater epoxy is commonly used to anchor its base to a piece of live rock in the reef aquarium. This gorgonian is photosynthetic and requires a moderate amount of light depending on the amount of filter feeding food that is available. It also requires a stronger water flow and the addition of iodine, calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. In order to inhibit algae and cyanobacteria growth, it is important that this gorgonian is provided with a medium to strong, constant or intermittent water flow. If in the event that it does begin to become covered with algae or cyanobacteria, remove it from the coral immediately, as this will cause rapid tissue deterioration. Algae can be removed gently with the use of a soft brush; combat cyanobacteria by soaking the coral in freshwater of the same temperature for approximately 1 minute.
Feeding:The Silver Quill should be fed a few times a week with a filter feeding food. Provide a varied diet of live or frozen baby brine shrimp, Marine Snow, PhytoPlancton and other suitable micro foods.

Purple Feather Gorgonian
Muriceopsis flavida

A Real Beauty!!!!
Description:The Purple Feather Gorgonian is also referred to as Purple Bush, Lamarck's Gorgonian, or Rough Sea Plume. It is a branching coral that is closely related to hard corals. It is pinnately branched, forming tall, feather-like colonies and has a beautiful purple coloration. The polyps are nocturnal, and the branches are bumpy in appearance when the polyps are withdrawn. It is semi-aggressive and should be given adequate space away from neighboring corals or anemones. Underwater epoxy is commonly used to anchor its base to a piece of live rock in the reef aquarium. It makes a rewarding addition to the well-established reef system. It requires medium to high lighting.
Management:In order to inhibit algae and cyanobacteria growth, it is important that this gorgonian is provided with a medium to strong, constant or intermittent water flow. If in the event that it does begin to become covered with algae or cyanobacteria, remove it from the coral immediately, as this will cause rapid tissue deterioration. Algae can be removed gently with the use of a soft brush, and cyanobacteria can be combated by soaking the coral in fresh water of the same temperature for approximately 1 minute. These corals will also benefit from the addition of iodine, calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

 Purple Ribbon Gorgonian

Description:The Purple Ribbon Gorgonia is also referred to as Purple Sea Blade, or Purple Sea Whip. This particular gorgonian has rows of polyps that extend down the sides of each blade. Gorgonians regularly shed tissue to remove buildup of sediment and algae from forming on their skeleton. All photosynthetic gorgonians require 4-5 watts per gallon to thrive. Like many corals it also filter feeds, so weekly feeding is recommended for optimal health. We offer single specimens, some mounted on small pieces of live rock that range from 4-6" tall.
Management: It is not necessary to feed this coral but it does have the ability to take in tiny bits of food and will do so from time to time. This coral requires at least VHO or Power Compact intensity lighting in order to do well in the aquarium. Keeping this coral in an area of high water flow is necessary to help prevent algae from forming on its branches, so using a powerhead pointed toward the gorgonian for good water flow is highly recommended. If any algae begins to form on this coral, it must be removed from the branches immediately. This can be accomplished using a small, soft brush, such as a brand new soft bristled toothbrush.

Feeding: It relies on photosynthesis, but its diet should also include regular feedings of micro-plankton, live, baby brine shrimp, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates, in order to survive in the reef aquarium.

AlgaGen ReefPods,Live Foods for Feeding Saltwater Aquarium Fish, Corals, and Invertebrates.
Reef Pods are the only truly tropical live copepod cultures available on the market today.
Copepods (“Pods” in aquarium terms) are a major component of the modern reef aquarium. Although, pods often are accidently introduced via live rock placed in reef aquariums, until recently there were few options available to control and maintain copepod populations.
If lucky, aquarists would see swarms of these little white “bugs” on the glass of their aquarium and subsequent feeding on these bugs by the fish. Now, these beneficial bugs are recognized as copepods and the methods for their colonization and proliferation in aquariums is better understood.The addition and establishment of copepod cultures to reef tanks is one of the best ways to achieve a continuous self-generating food supply. Aquarists who have established copepod populations know that most coral and many other filter feeding invertebrates and small bottom feeding fish such as Mandarins greatly benefit from copepods.



All of the AlgaGen ReefPods are tropical herbivorous species of copepods that will survive in higher temperature tanks. Copepods are an important energy source for reefs. Aquarists try to supply that energy using frozen or preserved diets. Dead plankton is not as nutritious as live plankton and food particles that are not eaten foul water quality and add to nutrient levels. Non-living food items do not swim about naturally and trigger feeding responses.
Professional and hobby aquarists, alike, now have the ability to inoculate their systems with different copepod species at will. They can experiment with different types and combinations of pods for different types of feeders. Mandarins and Seahorses, Anthias and Dragonettes, LPS Corals, deep water gorgonians, Acropora, Crinoids, Basket Stars: the list of copepod lovers could go on and on.

   ReefPods™ Tisbe by AlgaGen
AlgaGen ReefPods™ Tisbe

ReefPods™ Tisbe the most popular aquarium Pod -they consumes your aquarium’s wastes and detritus, reproduce well, and are food for a multitude of reef inhabitants!

ReefPods™ Tisbe is a live culture of the harpacticoid copepod Tisbe biminiensis. Tisbe adult copepods live on bottom substrate such as live rock or sand and will eat detritus and microalage in the aquarium. They produce a small nauplii which is an excellent food for aquarium filter feeders and fish larvae. The adults are eaten by small bottom feeding fish such as gobies, dragonettes and blennies. ReefPods™ Tisbe may be used as a starter culture to add to marine aquarium refugiums or the main tank. Once established they will reproduce quickly, growing from nauplii to adults in about nine days. They will thrive in a wide range of aquarium temperatures and a wide range of salinities. It is suggested they be added to the aquarium at night or to the refugium to avoid immediate fish predation.

Tisbe is an excellent all purpose aquarium copepod owing to its role in the natural environment as a detritivore. An opportunist feeder, Tisbe can be used as a tank cleaner consuming uneaten food and wastes as well as phytoplankton in the tank and refugium. Tisbe is capable of producing many eggs during its adult life span that hatch into nauplii which will enter the water column as food for your filter feeding reef inhabitants and replenish the adult population vital to tank hygiene. Tisbe adults and juveniles may also enter the water column and be tasty and nutritious treats for your reef fish! ReefPods are guaranteed to arrive alive but there is no further guarantee after arrival.

Approximate copepod count: 8 oz bottles contain 100 to 200 pods and 16 oz bottles contain 200 to 300 pods.

A deepwater sponge, the Flourescent Vase Sponge is found in the oceans of the Carribean at depths approaching 60 feet down. Their size can be from a few inches to over 6 feet tall. Natural suspension feeders, filtering food from the water. Phytoplankton foods bring out lot's of color. They are very helpful in filtering aquarium water. They can withstand a wide temperature variation and they last indefinitely in the marine

Like other Sponges, the Vase Sponge feeds on bacteria and detritus that it filters from the moving water. This is why water movement is crucial to their survival. Sponges can usually tolerate changes in water temperature with no ill effect, but they may be sensitive to drastic changes in salinity.

The Vase Sponge will be fine with low to moderate lighting and moderate water movement. Many beginning hobbyists loose sponges because they do not provide enough light or water movement.

The Vase sponge shape can vary quite alot, but all pieces look unique and beautiful.

The most critical concern is that Sponge never be exposed to the air. If it is exposed to air out of the water, the air becomes trapped in the matrix of channels that line the inside of its sponge body, blocking the path for food to reach its cells.

  Flourescent Green Bulb Anemone
Entacmaea quadricolor
Description:The Green Bulb Anemone is one beautiful anemones for the reef aquarium. When housed beneath proper aquarium lighting, the Entacmaea quadricolor develops a unique bulb tip at the end of its tentacles. When hungry, the quadricolor will stretch its sweeper tentacles to grab food from the water column. After feeding, tentacles shorten back to the bulb appearance once again.

When housed beneath bright aquarium lighting, the Green Bulb Anemone develops a unique bulb tip at the end of its tentacles, hence the name Bulb Anemone. When hungry, this member of the Actiniidae family will stretch its sweeper tentacles to grab food from the water column. After feeding, the tentacles then shorten again

Lighting Requirements: In order for the Green Bulb Anemone to stay beautiful, intense lighting is required. This means either halide lighting, or flourescent lightingor intense florescent lighting of at least 6 watts per gallon.

The Green Bulb Anemone will typically remain tight or compact with bulb like tips. If the aquarium lighting is insufficient, the Green Anemone will enlarge their body to get the most out of the light provided. For best results with a Green Bulb Anemone you must provide a Clownfish.

Diet and Feeding: Its diet should include chopped fish, shrimp, or worms if a clownfish is not present, feed with a feeding stick. Pieces should be cut smaller than the size of the anemones mouth. At times, the tentacles may appear stringy; this may be due to insufficient light or the need for food.

Under ideal conditions under high intensity lighting and proper keeping, the Green Anemone can grow up to about 8 inches in diameter.

Approximate Inflated Size: Small: 1-1/2" to 2-1/2", Medium: 3" to 4-1/2, Large 5" to 7"
The bubble ranemone equires up to 7 days to inflate fully. When your bubble anemone arrives it will look very small. This is normal. Once the bubble anemone is in your aquarium for 7 to 10 days it will be to its inflated size.

 Ultra Maxi Mini Carpet Anemone
Stichodactyla tapetum

Description:These are not died colors. This photo has not been touched up. Maxi Mini Carpet Anemone's are also called Pizza Anemone's. They are exceptionally hardy, easy to keep , and extremely simple to clone by cutting. Maxi mini carpets come from Vietnam. They came into the U.S. market about 5 years ago and only recently have the really nice colors been coming in. Unlike the mini carpet anemones, these maxi anemones come in a rainbow of colors and grow up to 5 inches.

The maxi mini anemone is very easy to keep and acclimates within minutes when you introduce it into your tank. It prefers to live in rock and will move quickly to your rock work if you place it on a sand bed. A good suggestion is to have a few pieces of rubble rock around to place the anemones in so they won't move around too much. Once they are settled in to their spot with good light and decent flow, they will usually stay in one place. Most people keep their anemones under T5's, lower down in a tank with MH's, or under LED lighting. To see all the beautiful colors in Maxi Mini Carpet Anemones actinic / blue lighting is required to get the beauties to fluoresce under.

Maxi mini carpets have a week sting compared to other anemones and other corals. They are not aggressive and you don't have to worry about them digesting your corals during the night, like some other corals would do. I would not advise putting them next to other types of anemones as the maxi minis will probably be damaged. You can keep several maxi mini carpet anemones together in a tank. Since they come in a variety of striking colors, a maxi mini tank is quite beautiful.

Please note: No two Maxi Mini Anemones are identical. The anemone's pictured above are representative only - the coloration of the anemone you receive may vary but guaranteed it will knock your socks off!

Diet Though mostly photosynthetic, supplemental feedings of raw table shrimp, clam, mussel, silversides, squid and other marine based meats can be fed every few days. Pieces should be cut roughly to the size of the anemones mouth.

  Yellow Sebae Anemone
Heteractis crispa
Description: The scientific name for Purple Tipped Sebae Anemone is Heteractis Crispa. Other common names include Sebae Anemone, Leather Anemone, and Radianthus Keukenthali. The Sebae Anemone shares a symbiotic relationship with a variety of clownfish such as, Clark’s, Bluestripe, Cinnamon, Oman, Orange Skunk, Pink Skunk, Percula, True Percula, Saddleback, Red Saddleback, White-band, Two-band, Three-band, Tomato, Barrier Reef White Bonnet, Maroon, Gold Band Maroon, Yellow Stripe Maroon, Sebae and Clarkii to name some. In fact, Heteractis crispa can host nearly any type of clownfish.

The Sebae's tentacles usually have magenta colored tips although yellowish-green tips are also found. The oral disk may also have a green sheen under actinic light.

LIghting: The Sebae anemone requires a high lighting intensity in the marine tank it inhabits. A recommendation of 250 watt to 400 watt halide lighting or equivalent is nescessary for the heath of the Heteractis crispa.

Habitat: The Sebae Anemone may move around in your aquarium till it finds a suitable place to settle down on sand or on a rock. It requires good water quality and the addition of iodine to the water as a dietary supplement.

Diet and Feeding: TIts diet should include chopped fish, shrimp, or worms if a clownfish is not present, feed with a feeding stick. Pieces should be cut smaller than the size of the anemones mouth.

 Colored Tipped Reef Anemone
Condylactis sp.
Description:The Colored Tipped Reef Anemone is collected from the Western Atlantic Ocean in lagoons or on inner reefs, as individuals, or loose groups, with their range extending from Brazil to Bermuda. Also known as the Atlantic Anemone, the Haitian Reef Anemone, and the Caribbean Anemone.

The ColoredTipped Anemone is one of the most familiar and commonly available of the anemones in the aquarium trade. Its beautiful colors and inexpensive price make it a popular anemone, especially for beginners. In the aquarium a base size of about 4" is common. This species has diverse color variations. The base color is usually brown to white and the tentacles may or may not have magenta, purple, or green tips on its long tapering tentacles. The tentacles may occasionally develop a bubble-like appearance to them. It prefers to bury its base in the sand or into the crevice of a rock for protection.

The Pink-Tipped Anemone is a hardy aquarium anemones, but this sea anemone species still needs good light to do well in the aquarium. Like all sea anemones they are photosynthetic and need light to keep the zooxanthelle that lives within their body tissue alive. The Condylactis Anemone has been known to deflate at times. This is normal if it happens once every few weeks, but no more than that. This behavior, the sea anemone purging, may indicate a water change is needed.

The typical reef environment is what is needed for your Condylactis Anemone. Live rock and a sand/reef environment is typical of the Western Atlantic.They need live rock or some other solid material they can attach to.

   Super Red Flower Anemone
Epicystis crucifer
Description:The Super Red Flower anemone may not host clownfish but they have so much more going for them. These Epicystis crucifer's are ridiculously colorful, picture perfect examples of fluorescent reef life that is incredibly suitable for aquarium life and LED lighting.

Recommended Tank size: An aquarium no smaller than 30 gallons should be used to house a flame angelfish. They require rock work incorporating holes, nooks and crannies to dart in and out of so adjust your liverock to this type of scape.
Food and diet:In a saltwater aquarium they should be given a balanced diet. Variety is important, feed them foods from a wide range of food groups. Feeding them a single type of food for too long is generally a bad idea. They should be fed frozen foods that have both meat and algae (Formula One, Formula Two, Ocean Nutrition Pygmy Angel Formula are all good examples, algae and nori sheets as well as a pellet from a reputable brand like Spectrum.
Level of Care: Easy
Acclimaton Time: 3+ hours

 Scotts Fairy Wrasse
Cirrhilabrus scottorum 

Description: Scott's Fairy Wrasse is a truly stunning fish displaying almost any color you can imagine. Like in all fairy wrasses, the males display the best coloration. They are however protogynous hermaphrodites so it is not 100% correct to speak about true males or females as all fish are born females and then develop into males if conditions are right. It is an easy to care for fish and Scott's Fairy Wrasse can be a good beginner fish if you disregard the high price. It is reef safe and rather friendly which makes it ideal for a community reef tank. Several females can be kept in the same tank without any problem, but only keep one male unless the aquarium is very large (at least 200 gallons.

Recommended Tank size: A sand bed and Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses.They will bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock provides numerous small life forms that the Wrasses consider a tasty treat as well as another place to hide when they feel threatened. A 90 gallon or larger aquarium, either fish-only or reef, with a shaded area is recommended. The Exquisite Wrasse will not pick on corals or invertebrates, making them an ideal fish for the reef aquarium.

Food and diet:When first placed into the aquarium live saltwater feeder shrimp can be used to help it start eating. Once eating the live feeder shrimp start feeding a varied diet that includes vitamin enriched frozen prepared foods for carnivores, minced table shrimp, and a good flake food. Feed at least twice a day.

Reef Compatability: Excellent Reef fish. Safe And Ideal For Reef Aquariums. It Does Not Harm Invertebrates And Benefits From The Numerous Hiding Places in A Well-stocked Reef.

Royal Gramma Basslet
Gramma loreto


Description: One of the real beauties of the sea, the Royal Gramma is found throughout the reef areas of the Caribbean. A popular addition to both smaller and larger aquariums, its adult size is fairly small reaching a maxium size in the ocean of only around 3 inches and slightly less in an aquarium when full grown. Quite hardy,it is one of the easiest, most colorful, and most popular of the basslets. It is an excellent choice for a reef aquarium, and since it remains small, is perfect for small reef systems.

The Royal Gramma prefers a tank with lots of rockwork to hide in and sleep. Since it is found in the deeper waters of the Caribbean, it needs areas of the tank to have lower light levels either through less bright aquarium lighting or cave areas that hide it from the bright lighting. Though perfectly friendly and peaceful with tankmates of close size, the Royal Gramma is territorial with its own species. That means it will be aggressive toward other Grammas so we suggest only one per tank.

Minimum Tank Size: 30 gallon

Feeding and diet: Royal Gramma's do well on a diet of meaty foods including marine fish, crustacean flesh, mysid shrimp, and quality frozen preparations.

Reef Compatibility:Excellent

Aquarium Live Coral Specials


Nano Tank Mushroom Coral Pack's

Mushrooms, sometimes called mushroom corals, belong to the order corallimorpharia, and they make ideal reef animals for marine aquarists entering the reef-keeping hobby.

While mushrooms may resemble coral and anemones, most species are far easier to keep than either coral or anemones. Mushrooms simply do not require the same level of husbandry, largely because they are remarkably tolerant of a very wide range of environmental conditions. In short, mushrooms are one of the most forgiving animals for the novice reef aquarist to consider keeping as he or she hones his or her reef-keeping skills.

 

Perfect For Beginner Reef Tanks!
Description: The Nano Tank Mushroom Package ships as either FOUR individual mushrooms or Eight individual mushrooms depending on the package chosen, attached to rock or gravel. Often times a mushroom may release itself from the rock or gravel it was adhered to, but will reattach to a new piece of substrate once adjusted to their new home.

Mushroom corals, are very hardy corals, and one of the best for the beginner reef aquarium. Among one of the best beginner corals, they can even be maintained in aquariums with just sand substrate, live rock, and an airstone for water movement and oxygenation. This is because they will tolerate high levels of nitrate and other organic compounds. They will do even better, and their colors will brighten in an aquarium with low levels of organic compounds. Most mushroom coral prefer indirect light or shade so high power lighting is not required.

So What do you get? Every Nano Mushroom package includes a variety of different species of mushrooms depending on current availability, and will even include a Super bright Florida Ricordea.The individual mushrooms are attached to small pieces of live rock or gravel. By ordering multiple Nano Mushroom Packages, you can create the ultimate Nano tank utopia.
Tech Notes on Mushroom Corals: When mushrooms are shipped it is normal for them to arrive very small, fully deflated. Over a period of time (this varies from days to more than a week), in their new reef aquarium, they will adjust to their new aquarium conditions and they will open fully becoming a beautiful addition to the Nano Reef Tank,. The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within the mushroom coral provides the majority of its nutritional requirements from the light driven process of photosynthesis. Mushroom corals will also benefit from regular feedings of zooplankton and small meaty items. Place the mushroom coral low in the aquarium until they open fully, and then gradually over a few weeks, move the coral to the desired location. To open large, mushroom corals prefer low water movement within the aquarium.

  Red Sun Polyp Coral
Orange Tubastrea / Red Sun Polyps


Does not require extreme lighting.
Does well under T5 or power compact aquarium lighting..
Description: Red Sun Polyps also called Orange Sun Polyps or Sun Coral are one of the most photographed corals in the world. This is not without reason. The brilliant orange coral issues forth lovely yellow orange tentacles at night, and is a sight that almost defies description. The polyps are large and extend mostly at night, although polyps may emerge during the day as well, especially if food is present.

Placement: Tubastrea is not a stinging coral, and may be placed close to other corals. In terms of aquarium care, specimens should be positioned in areas of consistent water flow that will bring them available food when expanded.

Feeding: Good food source for Sun Polyps will be meaty foods, such as Algagen's Phycopure Reef Blend, any zoo-plankton food (small crustaceans and fish larvae), Two Little Fishes and Sea Chem make good blends, and also frozen mysis and brine shrimp work well. Many newly acquired specimens take some time before they begin to extend their tentacles to feed. In fact, they may often seem to refuse to open. Several diligent evenings of blowing food across the closed cups will usually entice a polyp to begin peeking out. Once started, there will rarely be occasion to have them not open in full glory in expectation of food. Like all LPS corals the Sun Polyp coral will also benefit from the occassional addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

Aquacultured Green Clove Polyps

Description: Neon Green Glove Polyp, Clavularia sp,also known as Encrusting Polyp, is a hardy coral , that does well in most reef aquariums. Glove Polyps wave beautifully in the current. It is a great choice for aquarists of all experience levels. Each glove polyp has eight-tentacled "blooms". Members of the
Clavularia species require only a moderate water flow and a moderate amount of lighting, making them ideal for placement at most any level of the aquarium.
They will grow and reproduce by budding, when provided with the proper environment.
Placement: Place green glove polyps along the bottom half of the aquarium on an exposed rock. Make sure that currents will be able to supply them with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Leave several inches between them and other specimens, as they will usually expand their colony and can be stung by other corals. Because the polyp tentacles may be stung by nearby corals, specimens should be kept an adequate distance from other corals. The picture above is a representative of the species, but no two corals are alike.
Diet and Feeding: Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within them supply most of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do require supplemental feedings. Supplementing their diet with the addition of trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, and food for filter feeders will help to insure their continued good health.

Blue Xenia also called Blue Anthillia is groupings of colonial animals with multiple individual polyps attached to a piece of solid substrate. They form stalks as they grow, and to reproduce. They are a beautiful blue color and their eight-tentacle polyps do not pulse like other species of Xenia but will sway beautifully in the reef aquarium in time to the tank current. The Blue Xenia we ship you is many generations tank raised.

The Xenia we ship you is many generations tank raised . This is very important since aquacultured Xenia are hardier than wild-collected specimens and are without the potential to carry sea born infections, or disease to your tank. They have lived there entire life under aquarium lighting and with aquarium type water flow and movement. A fast growing coral, provide adequate space between them and other types of soft corals.

They require a medium to high light level combined with a medium to strong water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, they will require the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water.

Under ideal conditions, and once acclimated, they may reproduce rapidly in the established reef aquarium. The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within their bodies provide the majority of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. This coral also absorbs phosphates but releases ammonia.

This particular species reproduces by growing a "foot" on the stalk. The stalk will then lean over and take hold of whatever it comes in contact with it.

  Aussie War Coral
Favites pentagona

Description: This is the original War Coral, and has proven to be a fast grower for us. A BEAUTIFUL red with super neon green eyes. Purchased at a local swapmeet over a year ago, we have been growing colonies for over a year now. It requires moderate water currents and moderate to high reef lighting for proper health. It is important that proper calcium and alkalinity levels are maintained. Use of Kalkwasser Mix or a calcium reactor will be of great benefit.
Placement:War Coral is semi aggressive, expanding their sweeper tentacles at night, therefore it is important to leave space between them and neighbors in the reef aquarium.
Lighting: Medium to high lighting would serve this species well. War coral can be kept under high output fluorescent bulbs, but may benefit from more intense lighting.

 Blue Sympodium
Sympodium sp.
Blue Sympodium
Description: The colors are absolutely stunning and this is the first coral we have ever seen that looks much better under T-5 HO lighting than Metal Halide. Sympodium is an interesting encrusting soft coral which is just beginning to show up in some coral shipments. Not to be confused with the “Blue Clove” polyps that became much more widely available in the last couple of years, Sympodium is related to Xenia but it does not pulse and it has much smaller polyps. This is a fast growing coral, more colorful than other Xeniids, with contrasting stalks and polyps; some color varieties have green or blue polyps and red tentacles (pinnules) or blue stalks with blue polyps and green tentacles. Others seem to be monochrome, but still brightly colored. They seem to do adapt well to any lighting, and prefer moderate current. Their stalks branch, much like Xenia corals.

Recommendations: Lower Light Levels, we recommend T5's. Supplymoderate flow.This coral is easy to keep and usually thrives in most tank conditions and lighting even those tanks were conditions are not always ideal.

Feeding: Because of their particular feeding habits, it isn’t necessary to directly feed Sympodium corals. The zooxanthellae provide nutrients via photosynthesis, and the polyps will absorb dissolved organic matter directly from the water.

 Red Hot Lava Chalice Coral Frag
Oxypora sp
Description: The Superbright Rede Hot Lava Chalice really glows under aquarium lighting and is offset by its beautiful red sparkles. Chalice Corals are known to exhibit some of the most beautiful combinations of colors and patterns, making them the perfect reef aquarium addition. The Red Hot Chalice coral grows thick with many bumps and lines that look like flowing lava hence the name. Not for the very beginner, but sturdy enough for the reefer with a little bit of experience, they are slow and steady growers under good conditions.
Placement: Place the Chalice Coral on an exposed rock along the bottom two-thirds of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Although it is not crucial, oxypora should be placed so that the plates are horizontal. Depending on the intensity of the light they may need to be placed low in the aquarium, or placed so that they get indirect Metal Halide light.
Lighting: oxypora species are a hermatypic/photosynthetic coral. They do well in all forms of lighting from strong halides, to T5's, even VHO and power compact lighting seem to bring about the dramatic colors. A word of caution: oxyporas lay down a relatively dense skeleton which makes them particularly vulnerable to high levels of Infra Red light, which some Metal Halide reflector combinations produce. Do not put oxypora near the top of heavily illuminated aquariums.
Water Quality: oxypora species are more tolerant of changes water quality making them an excellent coral for beginners. Though they are more tolerant, a stable environment is obviously better for the prolonged health & well being of these creatures.
Diet and Feeding:
Feeding is not necessary but it does make the oxypora more robust. This coral feeds mostly at night so offer food when the lights are off. Chalices will always benefit from an occasional feeding of marine snow, phytoplankton, or food for filter feeders also an occasional feeding of Cyclops is recommended.
Frag Difficulty: oxypora species grow outward from all around their edges a large colony can nevertheless produce a significant amount of new growth every year. Fragments can be taken, and in our experience the easiest way is with a straight-edged razor blade. With the blade perpendicular from the edge of the coral, cut inwards about an inch. Repeat about an inch away from the first cut, then snap off the section between the two incisions. Even small frags tend to be extremely hardy and easy to acclimate.

The Stunner will also benefit from an occasional feeding of marine snow, phytoplankton, or food for filter feeders.The coloration they display is amongst the brightest, most vivid and remarkable ever encountered with a coral. They do well in all forms of lighting from strong halides, to T5's, even VHO and power compact lighting seem to bring about the dramatic colors. Some may suspect the photo above to be retouched. Not only are they not, we assure the reader that if anything they fall short of accurately depicting the vivid coloration of these corals. As many who have kept them have encountered, they’re an instant attention grabber sure to draw the immediate interest of those who see them in captivity.
Placement: Place the oxypora Coral on an exposed rock along the bottom two-thirds of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Although it is not crucial, oxypora should be placed so that the plates are horizontal. Depending on the intensity of the light they may need to be placed low in the aquarium, or placed so that they get indirect Metal Halide light.
Lighting: oxypora species are a hermatypic/photosynthetic coral. They do well in all forms of lighting from strong halides, to T5's, even VHO and power compact lighting seem to bring about the dramatic colors. A word of caution: oxyporas lay down a relatively dense skeleton which makes them particularly vulnerable to high levels of Infra Red light, which some Metal Halide reflector combinations produce. Do not put oxypora near the top of heavily illuminated aquariums.
Water Quality: oxypora species are more tolerant of changes water quality making them an excellent coral for beginners. Though they are more tolerant, a stable environment is obviously better for the prolonged health & well being of these creatures.
Diet and Feeding:
Feeding is not necessary but it does make the oxypora more robust. This coral feeds mostly at night so offer food when the lights are off. Chalices will always benefit from an occasional feeding of marine snow, phytoplankton, or food for filter feeders also an occasional feeding of Cyclops is recommended.
Frag Difficulty: oxypora species grow outward from all around their edges a large colony can nevertheless produce a significant amount of new growth every year. Fragments can be taken, and in our experience the easiest way is with a straight-edged razor blade. With the blade perpendicular from the edge of the coral, cut inwards about an inch. Repeat about an inch away from the first cut, then snap off the section between the two incisions. Even small frags tend to be extremely hardy and easy to acclimate.

Zoanthids (order Zoantharia also called Zoanthidea or Zoanthiniaria) are an order of cnidarians commonly found in coral reefs, the deep sea and many other marine environments around the world. These animals come in a variety of different colonizing formations and in numerous colors. They can be found as individual polyps, attached by a fleshy stolon or a mat that can be created from small pieces of sediment, sand and rock.

Important Note: All of the Japanese Deepwater Zoanthids are temperamental after fragging and transport. Multiple customers have had these closed up for days to as much as two weeks after they arrive. We've witnessed this ourselve's just moving them from tank to tank within a 2 hour period. Customers also report the same quite often. We tell you this, not to be afraid but to be patient, Deepwater Zoa's are hearty in the sense that they don't die. They just don't like to be bothered and you can expect them to not be open for a while after you get them into your tank.

 Watermelon Mushroom Rock
Actinodiscus sp.
The Actinodiscus Mushrooms are also referred to as Mushroom Anemones and Disc Anemones. They were previously in a genus called Discosoma. These corals display a wide variety of colors, textures, and patterns. Some are solid colors, whereas, others are striped or spotted. Striped varieties are usually green. They are hardy and relatively easy to maintain, and under the right conditions, will multiply and spread very rapidly. In general, they need a medium light level and a low to medium water flow within the aquarium, although different species may have different requirements. They are semi-aggressive and require adequate space between themselves and other corals and sessile invertebrates.
Notes: Place Mushrooms along the bottom half of the aquarium on an exposed rock. Make sure that currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Leave several inches between it and other corals.Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within its body supply some of its nutritional requirements through photosynthesis it does require supplemental feeding. Supplementing its diet with the addition of trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, brine shrimp, and food for filter feeders will help to insure its continued good health.

Metallic Green/Hairy Mushroom Rock
Rhodactis indosinensis

It is very easy to maintain in the reef aquarium, and a good choice for the beginner hobbyist. It is somewhat aggressive, however, and can harm sessile invertebrates and overgrow other inhabitants of the reef. It often grows in shallow water, so it prefers a medium to high light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium. It reproduces by fission or laceration, and will do so in the home aquarium provided that water conditions are adequate, sometimes causing over-population. A small portion of the base or mouth will separate from the parent polyp and grow into a full sized mushroom within a few months.
Notes: Place Mushrooms along the bottom half of the aquarium on an exposed rock. Make sure that currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements.

Very brilliant flourescence.
They just don't come any brighter than this one!
Description:Considered the "god" of nepthea's in the wild, the Palau Neon Green Nephthea will make an incredible addition by bringing exciting color and movement to any reef.
Tank Recommendations: Leather Corals are generally very hardy and will thrive in a properly maintained reef aquarium.

  Rasta Leather
Sinularis Flexibillis

Also called Spaghetti leather
100's of tentacles. Super long, super flowing, beautiful
Description:A favorite from Fiji, the best description for the Spaghetti Finger Leather Coral is a finger type leather with a large number of very long strands of leather. One of the favorite leather corals for the aquarium, Spaghetti Leathers are golden-white to green in color and have a highly branching form and are covered in tiny polyps. These corals grow quickly and can quickly become a showpiece after they are established. Larger specimens are more "branchy" than smaller ones and make an impressive display with pulsing water movement.
Tank Recommendations:When placing in your aquarium, find a good spot and leave alone. Handle as little as possible. Excessive handling can damage newly arrived specimens. Once established, they are quite hardy, not as touchy as their initial requirements sound. Spaghetti leathers do best in medium to bright lighting. Moderately strong to strong water movement is also important. The water quality should be kept high with a fairly constant temperature between 75 degrees and 80 degrees.

Metallic Red Open Brain
(Trachyphyllia geoffroyi)

Description:Metallic Red Open Brain Corals are one of the most common aquarium corals. A good choice for the hobbyist just getting started with stony corals. They have a hard skeleton that is covered with fleshy tissues that expand and make the coral look much larger then they actually are. The shape is generally large-lobed and may be flat or dome-shaped. Round or figure-eight-shaped corals are also common.

Care must be taken when placing the coral in the aquarium so that nothing will damage the soft tissue. When placing them in the aquarium place them on the substrate or mid-way in the aquarium where they will receive tdirect light. Allow ample space between it and other corals, as it will sometimes sting its neighbors. Open Brain Corals can become shocked and potentially bleached (a rapid die-off of the algae in its tissue) after rapid changes in the intensity of its lighting. Always acclimate carefully, especially if increasing the light intensity.

Most of the coral's nutrients come from the symbiotic algaes that benefit from this lighting, but supplemental feedings are also beneficial. Open Brain Corals will extend long feeder tentacles at night and should be target fed about an hour after the lighting is off. Though they generally prefer moderate to high flow, decrease the flow while feeding to give the coral a chance to feed. Some Trachyphyllia have been known to capture larger meaty foods including small fish and invertebrates

Diet Requirements:Though these corals are mostly photosynthetic, they benefit from the occasional bit of raw table shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp or silverside once a week.

  Metallic Green Flat Brain
Wellsophylia Radiata

Description:The Metallic Green Welsophyllia Brain Coral comes in several different bright green color variations. They have a flat round skeleton, much flatter and rounder than other Open Brain Corals. In the wild they are found on the sand and need to be placed accordingly in the display aquarium. To receive the best amount of lighting, Metallic Green Welsophyllia Brain Corals will swell up and pull themselves out of their hole in the sand. Surprisingly, they will also move around the sand bed quite a bit in this fashion. If placed on rockwork the rocks can damage the tender underside of the coral and may cause it to stress and possibly die.

Purple Tip Frogspawn
Euphyllia glabrescens

Beautiful green frogspawn with bright purple tips!
Description:The Frogspawn Coral is a large polyp stony coral (LPS) often referred to as the Wall, Octopus, or Grape coral. Its polyps remain visible throughout both the day and night, resembling a mass of fish eggs or frog eggs, hence one of its common names Frogspawn. With its appearance and coloration it makes a beautiful addition to any reef aquarium. During the evenings, its sweeper tentacles can extend up to six inches beyond its base into the reef aquarium surroundings. It will sting other neighboring corals in the reef aquarium, therefore, it is best to leave plenty of room between itself and other types of corals.
