Blue Spotted Jawfish
Opistognathus rosenblatti



Description: The Blue Spotted Jawfish also called the Blue Spot Jawfish or Blue Dot Jawfish is often the saltwater jawfish of choice for the reef aquarium or fowle (fish only with live rock) aquarium. The Blue Spotted Jawfish is both a beautiful and behaviorally very interesting fish that can make an excellent aquarium inhabitant. Just be sure the aquarist follows some basic saltwater husbandry practices. All who own this beauty agree it is worth every penny of its price.

Husbandry Requirements: The blue spotted jawfish needs to reside in a fish only or reef aquarium with a deep sandbed of at least 3 inches along with some rubble rock. Within this sand and rubble the blue spotted jaw will create a network of tunnels. The sandbed can be either all sand or a combo of reef rubble and shell fragments.

Since like all jawfish the blue spotted jawfish will jump make sure the aquarium is covered with a top of eggcrate or some other material to prevent the fish from launching itself out of the aquarium. In addition to a covering the well taught aquarist will attempt to destress the new tank mate by leaving on at least some of the tank lighting during the initial first day of acclimation to its new home. The reason is to allow the fish to seach for a suitable site to burrow before it will begin to settle down. Leaving some light on will be a big help for your new specimen to acclimate to its new aquarium.

Another cause of jumping for a blue spotted jawfish obviously has to do with its new tankmates. Besides not wanting to be placed with other blue spotted jawfish other aggressive fish. Even small aggressive fish such as dottybacks will most likely cause the blue spotted jawfish to jump. Therefore we always recommend that the blue spotted jawfish be only kept with peaceful saltwater fish to avoid unnecessary jumping behavior from the stress.

Other Requirements: A minimum tank size of 20 gallons with some open areas for the jawfish to burrow. Because very turbulent flow makes it hard to burrow tunnels there must be at least some areas of less than turbulent flow.

Feeding: Any aquarium diets for carnivores is fine, we feed small pieces of seafood such as mussel, daphnia, brine shrimp, bloodworms, or other meaty foods. When feeding frozen aquarium food it would be a very wise to provide some vitamins to the frozen mix. Our favorite choices are Selcon or Vita Chem.
Level of Care: Moderate only because of the jumping. Make sure tank is covered as described above

Royal Flasher Wrasse
Paracheilinus angulatus


Description: The Royal Flasher Wrasse is a stunning and very active wrasse. The wrasse's main body is a bright red with bold blue horizontal stripes. The females tend to have more yellow in with the red and the males have less yellow and a more brilliant red. With a female in the tank, the Male Royal Flasher Wrasse will flash or change colors at an extremely fast rate.

The Royal Flasher Wrasse is also called the Angulatus or Angular Flasher Wrasse. This fish is very popular in saltwater aquariums because they can easily adapt to the saltwater aquarium environment as long as the aquarist follows some basic saltwater husbandry proactices. When presented with females the changing of colors or "flashing's "purpose is to attract its female counterparts for mating. The flashing usually begins near reef rock and coral and continues as the fish glides its way in and out of the water column then back to its point of origin. Collected from Malaysia and Northeastern Indonesia the Royal Flasher Wrasse is found in sheltered reef areas of the ocean along the upper parts of slopes and also over rubble where both rich coral and algae mix. They live in small mixed groups of exes but the females always outnumber the males.

Husbandry Requirements: We recommend a minimum of a 30 gallon tank. Multiple Male Royal Flasher's should not be kept in the same tank to keep aggression down. But pairs of Females along with a single Male Royal Flasher do very well. The Royal Flasher Wrasse will thrive in tanks with lots of established live rock that they can pick small copepods and other micro inverts off of between their feedings.

Feeding: Being a very active wrasse it needs to be fed at least twice a day. Being carnivores, it needs a diet that is rich in meaty foods. Any aquarium diet for carnivores is fine, we feed small pieces of seafood such as mussel, daphnia, brine shrimp, bloodworms, or other meaty foods. When feeding frozen aquarium food it would be a very wise to provide some vitamins to the frozen mix. Our favorite choices are Selcon or Vita Chem.

Diamond Watchman Goby
Valencienna puellaris

Great Reef Fish - Excellent Sand Cleaner
Description:   The Diamond Goby is also called the Orange Spotted Diamond Goby, the Pretty Prawn goby or the the Maiden goby. Whatever name you want to call it, guaranteed it is one of the most popular gobies. We make sure your Diamond Goby is only the healthiest by bringing them in only from once source in South Africa, and then not selling any new stock before they are feeding on aquarium food, not just live.It can be fed just about any marine food, but, if you have a large aquarium, it will get most of its nourishment from the organic matter in the sand bed. The Diamond Watchman will usually dig a burrow underneath a rock in your aquarium, in which it will sleep and hide when frightened.

Not only is it a very beautiful fish, but it is also quite beneficial for aquariums, since it will oxygenate the sand bed and stir up any waste. The name "Watchman" comes from their behavior in the wild, where they act as watchmen for the shrimp. The Diamond Goby is known to take an aquarium that has been ignored, filthy with detritus, and working non stop it starts passing the sand through its gills and makes the sand white again. It also seems to enjoy stacking sand in little mounds, which can be an interesting sight to behold.

Husbandry Requirements: We recommend a minimum of a 29 gallon tank. Diamond Watchman Gobies spend most of the day at the bottom of the tank sifting through the substrate looking for food with their mouths. This action will also keep the substrate clean and well oxygenated. A decent depth substrate is required for the Diamond Watchman Goby, so it can burrow in it as well as feed from it. We recommend a minimum depth of 2 inches.

Feeding: Any aquarium diets for carnivores is fine, we feed small pieces of seafood such as mussel, daphnia, brine shrimp, bloodworms, or other meaty foods.

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.

Husbandry Requirements: We recommend a minimum of a 20 gallon tank. The Royal Gramma prefers a tank with lots of rock work 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 basslets so we suggest only one per tank.

Feeding: Any aquarium diets for carnivores is fine, we feed small pieces of seafood such as mussel, daphnia, brine shrimp, bloodworms, or other meaty foods. When feeding frozen aquarium food it would be a very wise to provide some vitamins to the frozen mix. Our favorite choices are Selcon or Vita Chem.

Blue Mandarin
Pterosynchiropus splendidus

Description:   The Blue Mandarin also called the Red Mandarin, Green Mandarin Dragonet, or Psychedelic Mandarin fish can simply not be confused with any other fish. It has arguably the most attractive coloration and pattern of any commonly kept reef fish. The scale-less body of the fish is a blue or green color which has bright Red wavy lines across it. The tail is bright red with blue edging. Other colors can be found in the pattern as well.

Mandarins help to prevent brown flatworm infestations, which can be trouble for some reef aquariums. The Mandarinfish will hover and scoot around your reef aquarium without bothering any corals,clams,or nvertebrates. It is best kept with other docile fishes in a community reef aquarium.

Husbandry Requirements: The Mandarin requires an established reef aquarium with plenty of live copepods available to feed on. You can supplement its diet with live copepods from AlgaGen called Tisbe Copepods. Adding a refugium to your system will once established, provide an excellent source of live food. The minimum tank requirement is generally stated as 29 gallon with 50lbs or more of live rock. This is based on feeding requirements and not space requirements as the Mandarin is a very slow, docile fish.

Feeding: Any aquarium diets for carnivores is fine, we feed small pieces of seafood such as mussel, daphnia, brine shrimp, bloodworms, or other meaty foods. When feeding frozen aquarium food it would be a very wise to provide some vitamins to the frozen mix. Our favorite choices are Selcon or Vita Chem.

Level of Care: Difficult to keep in the home aquarium because they are picky eaters thus they should be reserved for the experienced aquarists only.

Reef Aquarium Invertebrates On Sale

Sexy Shrimp
Thor amboinensis
Food and diet: The tiny Sexy Shrimp has enjoyed good popularity among marine hobbyists throughout the years. It is called the sexy shrimp due to the way it is constantly twirling its body even when stationary. They are a type of anemone shrimp that are normally found in association with anemones in the wild.
Curiously named Thor Amboinensis despite their size. Very small, they are well suited to nano and even pico aquariums. Like the Fire shrimp and the Cleaner Shrimp, the Sexy shrimp are commonly found throughout the Indo-Pacific where they are collected in large numbers for the trade. They are also relatively cheap as a result, making them very accessible to all saltwater tank enthusiasts.
Tank mate selection is important. Due to their small size, they are easily harrased and consumed by larger fish. Strictly no basslets, groupers or any other large carnivores. They do well with pygmy angels. Although i'd avoid housing them with large angels just incase.
Upon introduction and acclimation, they will seek out an anemone host. If one is not found they will make do with substitutes from a variety of corals. Mushrooms, Green star polyps, clove polyps are good candidates for a substitute host. The sexy shrimp is a social creature that does well in groups. I've personally kept them in groups of 5 with little friction. Though there may be some infighting now and again.
Feeding: Sexy 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

Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp
Lysmata amboinensis
Description: The skunk cleaner shrimp is an extraordinarily versatile little shrimp that is perfect for most reef tanks, and also for many fish-only tanks without fish that pose a predatory risk to crustaceans. They are omnivorous scavengers, eating almost anything, but are most-well known for their symbiotic relationship with many fish. When a fish comes down with Ich or other types of skin problems, the fish will swim up next to the shrimp and patiently tread water while waiting for the shrimp to clean its body of parasites. For the shrimp's part, it is usually quite diligent and will pick dead skin and necrotic material off the fish, keeping it disease free. This is a fascinating behavior to watch, not to mention practical in a reef tank where Ich outbreaks can threaten fish, but most Ich medications will kill off corals. The cleaner shrimps will be less shy if kept in 2-3 member groups; they will establish their own "cleaner stations" on live rock and fish will know where to seek them when they require their services. Skunk Cleaner Shrimp are very sensitive to quickly changing water conditions, so keep water quality high. Healthy shrimp will molt on a regular basis, another fascinating thing to watch.
Care Level: Easy
Temperament: Peaceful
Diet: Cleaner 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

 Harlequin Shrimp
Hymenocera elegans

Description:This truly is one of the most stunning and beautiful Shrimps to be found. With good water quality, a peaceful environment and the proper food, you should have no trouble in maintaining this species for a good many years. The body is of a pinkish-white or white color, splashed with large purple-edged pink spots, and sometimes reddish or light orangish toned looking spots. This shrimp remains very small, only reaching an average length of 1 to 2 inches. Like with all invertebrates, this shrimp is sensitive to copper medications.
Care: As with any marine species, water quality plays an important role in ensuring they remain healthy. Being an invertebrate, shrimp do not tolerate anything less than perfect reef grade water. If you can provide consistent water quality, you should have no trouble at all in being able to keep your Harlequin shrimp healthy and free of problems.
Being a timid species, it is also vital to ensure their aquarium is safe from predators or other animals that may harass them. Even a fast moving fish passing by can cause these shrimp stress and they may go into hiding and be unable to properly eat. As pets, taking the simple precautions of having pump inlets protected and any possible predators removed will make keeping this species a simple matter.

Tiger Pistol Shrimp
Alpheus bellulus
Description:By far the interesting aspect of pistol shrimp are their ability to form a symbiotic relationship with some species of goby fish. This is commonly seen in pistol shrimps belonging to the genus Alpheus such as the tiger pistol shrimp and Randall's pistol shrimp.The Tiger Pistol Shrimp's body is tan with rust colored broken stripes running across the back and vivid Blue stripes on its legs, arms, and antennae. These beneficial shrimp will constantly move gravel making them excellent sand stirrers in the reef aquarium, as well as scavenging any uneaten food. The sound it makes comes from an appendage on the pincher which moves when the pincher is opened or closed and water is ejected. The Tiger Pistol Shrimp have a symbiotic relationship with gobies . The goby, with better eyesight, warns the shrimp of predators. The shrimp share its food with the goby. Tiger Pistol Shrimp thrive in environments with sand, rock caves, and areas of lower light. They will hang out in the lower portion of the tank, near rocks or ledges to keep out of the direct light. If in pairs, one will often stand guard at the burrow while the other is inside.
Food and diet:Pistol Shrimp will accept any meaty freeze-dried and frozen foods and bottom feeder tablets.

Coral Banded Shrimp
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.

 Scarlet Red Fire Shrimp
Lysmata debelius

Excellent cleaner Shrimp and Detritus (garbage) Eater for Sand and Rock
Description : Also called The True Red Fire Shrimp, or Blood Red Fire Shrimp, the Red Fire Shrimp is a brilliant deep red with white antennae and small white spots. It by far, is one of the most popular shrimp in the aquarium hobby. Keep as few or as many as you like together, because the Red Fire shrimp is a social species, getting along with other Red Fire Shrimp and also getting along with any other saltwater shrimp you may have/want in your tank. So summing it all up they are perfect for most reef tanks, and fish-only tanks as long as the tank does not have any saltwater fish that pose a predatory risk to shrimp (crustaceans). They are omnivorous scavengers, eating almost anything, but are excellent for their symbiotic relationship with many fish for cleaning. When a fish comes down with Ich or other types of skin problems, the fish will swim up next to the shrimp and patiently tread water while waiting for the shrimp to clean its body of parasites.

Description: The Pincushion Urchin is completely reef safe. It is a small Urchin that has sharp protruding spines. They grow to only 2 to 3-1/4 inches in the aquarium. In Nature, their spines serve as their defense mechanism from predators. All Urchins are nocturnal and do most of their grazing/cleaning at night. During the day they will usually stay stationary hidden somewhere on the aquarium glass, or in hiding spots in rockwork. Urchins are an excellent algae eaters for both glass and rockwork alike. Excellent on hair algae outbreaks.

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 (old food, etc). They will scour your rockwork, glass and sandbed. Their color ranges from greens to pinks to purples. Multicolor is often seen with the spikes one color and the body another.

Dalmation Linckia Sea Starfish
Linckia multifora

Description:The Dalmation Linckia is a multi-color Linckia that is found in many colorations. The picture is just of one particular Dalmation, but there are many different color patterns and all are outstanding to look at. This species has been known to reproduce asexually in aquariums, by breaking off an arm and that arm creating a whole new Starfish. They are also known to have an unusal nimber of arms at times. Quite interesting. A truly incredible species! They are completely reef safe and are a must have for anyone with either a fish-only or reef tank.
Diet:If introduced to a large well established aquarium, very little needs to be done to supplement Linckias. The bacterial film that comprises the mainstay of the Linckias diet usually appears in abundance in well established and seasoned aquariums.
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. Linckia Starfish must never receive exposure to air during acclimation.

Rose Bulb Anemone's
Entacmaea quadricolor sp.
Description: Highly in demand,the Rose Bulb Anemone is the less seen color variation of the Bubble Tip Anemone. When housed beneath bright aquarium lighting, the Rose 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 Rose Bulb Anemone to stay beautiful, intense lighting is required. This means either halide lighting, or fluorescent lighting or intense florescent lighting of at least 4 watts per gallon.

The Rose Bulb Anemone will typically remain tight or compact with bulb like tips. If the aquarium lighting is insufficient, the Rose Anemone will enlarge their body to get the most out of the light provided. For best results with a Rose 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 Rose Anemone can grow up to about 8 inches in diameter.

Ultra Maxi Mini Carpet Anemone
Stichodactyla tapetum

Description: Wait till you see these under LED's or actinic lighting! 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 placeit 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 LED's, PC's, and T5's. When keeping under LED's keep them only lower down in a tank. 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.
Diet Though mostly photosynthetic, supplemental feeding's 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.
Care Level: Easy
Aggresiveness: Peaceful

Colored Tipped Reef Anemone
Condylactis sp.
Description: The Colored or Pink-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 Pink-Tipped 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 zooxanthella 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. Be sure to have all of your pumps covered, most good quality pumps have guards on them and are worth the investment. Because this anemone will move about, you will want to provide foam filters over any power head intakes.

Diet/Feeding: The Pink-Tipped Anemone is a carnivore. Feed it chopped silversides, shrimp, krill, and mussels, fresh chopped fish (from your grocery store), as well as frozen carnivore preparations. Feed once a week or less. Since this is a cooler water anemone, their metabolism would be much slower than the more tropical sea anemones.

  Bumble Bee Snails

A good addition to a clean up crew, eats uneaten food, decaying matter and most algae species.

Description: Bumble Bee Snails are a smaller snail with a dark shell and yellowish bands. They are predominately nocturnal and often spend their time hiding in and under rockwork shelves, caves and overhangs. Don’t let their nocturnal habits discourage you from having a few of these neat looking snails in your tank though! They are quite the detrivores and will quickly consume any organics before they have a chance to decay in your system. If given the right water stability, these snails will even spawn. They require a sandbed as they sometimes like to burrow and forage in the substrate.
Diet: Will stay mostly on sand and rock surfaces eating extra fish food, detritus, decaying matter etc. Can occasionally be seen climbing glass – usually in the middle of excitement from smelling food. Supplemental feedings are welcome and appreciated in the way of raw table shrimp, mysis shrimp, silversides, mussel, clam, scallop and other meaty bits.

Astrea Snails
(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.

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 easily identified based on the characteristic sharp conical shell circled by a large ridge.

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.

  Tiger Sand Conch

Totally peaceful toward other tank mates.
Great for Cleaning Sand, 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 eater, 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.

Nassarius Snails
(Nassaurius vibex)

The Nassarius vibex is a little clean up critter that does a BIG JOB.
Description: The Nassarius vibex is a little clean up critter that does a BIG JOB. All the garbage in the bottom of the tank, such as unwanted algae, decaying waste, leftover food, fish excrement, all are eaten by the small Nassarius snail. Since it's this waste throughout the aquarium that causes Nitrates to rise, having Nassarius snails in your aquarium that eliminate this waste will keep Nitrates lower. Because of the important Nitrate elimination from the snail we consider the Nassarius vibex a must have for any good clean up crew. If that's not enough, other advantages the Nassarius provides is the important aeration of the substrate which prevents the sand from compacting and the fact that this constant stirring of the sand puts micro particulates in the water for coral to feed upon. Normally you will not see much of the Nassarius snail but that will change when you feed your tank. They will emerge as you feed and will pick up the left over food. hey have beautiful ornamental shells, are fast movers, and are VERY hardy snails. You will see the Nassarius snail emerge from beneath the sand when you drop food in the tank in a feeding frenzy.
Recommended minimum tank size: 1 gallon or larger They do best when kept in a live sand bed.

 Assorted Green Algae Plant

Besides adding beauty to any aquarium, marine plants have become quite popular for use as "algae-scrubbing filters" to remove excess ammonia, nitrates, and phosphates from the aquarium.In addition, they help remove heavy metals and neutralize toxins. Marine plants also provide a pH buffer and produce chemicals which protect the skin, intestines, and gills of aquarium fish. That's an awful lot of help from marine plants, that's why they are so popular in the marine aquarium system! In addition to helping clarify your water by absorbing nitrates, carbon dioxide and some metals, marine plants also serve as a food source for many marine species – whether they feed directly on the algae itself or on micro fauna attracted to the algae.

 Pom Pom Crabs
Lybia tessellata
Description: The Indo-Pacfic native Pom Pom Crab is a comical aquarium addition. This unique crab species carries a small anemone, which look like pom poms, in each claw. There are at least two purposes for carrying the anemones. The first is a simple matter of defense. The Pom Pom will taunt would-be predators by shaking the anemones in hopes of stinging the invader into retreat. It also mops the substrate to gather uneaten food, thus creating a symbiotic relationship between the Pom Pom Crab and its pom poms. The anemone undoubtedly benefits by getting to eat its share of the treasure. Also known as the Boxer Crab, it is a hardy creature that grows to about an inch in length.

Because of this small size, it is great for the mini-reef aquarium. This crab is attractively marked, with striped legs and bold markings. The anemones are dropped during molting but are retrieved once this process completes. Curiously, lab studies have shown that a crab that loses one anemone will attempt to split the one it has into two regenerated clones, a method used by humans to propagate larger anemones. They may be kept in groups and females will produce reddish colored egg masses that they carry on their abdomens.

Food and diet: They can be fed algae pellets, or sheets of algae if they can't find enough natural food.

Description: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. Gracillaria 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 fl0urecsent or pc's. Their photosynthesis produces oxygen and will also increase the pH.

  Live Macro Algae Saltwater Reef Tank Refugium
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.

 Large Hard Tube Fan Worm (also called a Coco Worm)
Protula bispiralis

Description: 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.

Although Coco Worms subsist mainly on bacteria and organic matter produced within the aquarium they will benefit from supplemental feedings of marine snow, phytoplankton, and/or foods for filter feeders.

  Red Sea Whip Gorgonian's
Leptogorgia

Description: This is one of the popular octocorals that come out of the Atlantic ocean. Widely found in the warm regions of the Atlantic Ocean, on rock, sand, or silt bottoms, the whip-like specimens are generally found in areas of gentle water flow. An interesting note about this species is that it secretes a substance called homarine, that inhibits the growth of diatoms. As with any gorgonian, no two corals are identical. When the red sea whip gorgonian is closed, the coloring ranges from red to burnt orange. But when the polyps are open, white polyps emerge against the red branches of its frame. The flexible flowing skeleton of the Red Sea Whip Gorgonian form underwater forests in areas on the Atlantic ocean floor with their plethora of blooming white polyps and latticed branches. Although many beginner aquarist's keep gorgonians successfully, gorgonians are not recommended as a beginner's coral. Yet although they are considered a more difficult coral to care for, they can thrive very well if provided with the proper environment. Anchoring this gorgonian to a small piece of live rock so that it can stand up in a tank will make positioning it in areas of high water flow much easier. It 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.

Water flow and Light Requirements: The Red Sea Whip should be maintained in a dimly-lit aquarium or in shaded parts of a brightly-lit aquarium with a moderate to a high amount of water flow.

Diet: Because the red sea whip resides in the deeper waters, it is not a photosynthetic coral, its diet consists completely of trapped organisms that pass through in the ocean currents. Feed at least once a week. Feed detritus, brine shrimp, Daphnia, Cyclops, or pulverized flake food, shrimp or clams. Sometimes you can stir up the gravel slightly in order to mix detritus in the water for feeding the species.

 Yellow Finger Gorgonian
Diodogorgia nodulifera

Description:The Yellow Tree Gorgonian is an attractive branching tree-like coral, it is extremely brittle and breaks easily, making it easy to propagate in this way.This gorgonian is non-photosynthetic and makes a great addition to any reef aquarium, or one containing Seahorses.

Management:The Yellow Tree Gorgonian 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 Yellow Tree Gorgonian 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.

Pseudopterogorgia bipinnata


Description:Sea fans like the Purple Candleabra create a beautiful display of height and motion in the home reef aquarium. They are easily maintained and propagated, making them an ideal choice for the dedicated hobbyist. The Purple Candleabra Gorgonian has a flexible axis that has the elasticity of stiff rubber, allowing it to sway while filter feeding in strong currents without breaking. Most commonly found on outer oceanic reefs attached to vertical faces and the undersides of ledges, Caribbean Pseudopterogorgia have narrow smooth branches that are commonly pinnate.
Management:A fast growing coral, care should be taken in allowing ample room for expansion and any interference from other neighboring corals. It is moderately easy to maintain and propagate when encrusted to substrate rubble. It requires medium to high lighting combined with medium to strong water movement. 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 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.

  Red or Yellow Tree Sponge
Description:Tree sponges (Ptilocaulis sp.) are not common sponges. They are found in the waters around the Caribbean in 40- to 80-foot deep water ,usually near the tops of coral reefs along ocean bottom ledges. A unique creature that has survived for thousands of years, the oceans sponges have no organs or tissue. They are a very basic life form that behaves like a compilation of separate organisms bound by a coordinated effort for survival. Tree sponge is safe to add to a reef aquarium, it will not damage coral that is in the same tank, like some other sponges. It is a peaceful, non-aggressive type of sponge that can live forever in a healthy environment.

Tech Note:When adding this item to the aquarium be sure to submerge the bag which carries it and release the water from the bag along with the sponge.Place in an area of the tank that gets moderate to strong water flow and shaded light.

Blue Palm Coral
(Nephtheis fascicularis)

Description:A striking Tunicate that can add some terrific color to your established reef tank. This is a filter feeder and requires no specific lighting to live. Also called the Lollipop Tunicate, or Lollipop coral, the Nephtheis fascicularis have thick, fingerlike stalks which support the asparagus-like heads which are actually clusters of what are called zooids. Their sole purpose is to continually filter the water for food, therefore they need good water flow and daily planktonic feedings to thrive. Occasionally these cluster heads drop when stressed such as in shipping or moving to a new location, however they will grow back indicated by a mucas-like substance enveloping the branch.
Placement: The Blue Palm is non-photosynthetic and has no lighting requirements, but should be placed in an area of strong water current to filter feed. We have found this coral does best in tanks that have been established for a year or longer and have some sediment on the bottom of the tank.
Diet and Feeding They gain zero nutrition from light, therefore their diet is totally from micro plankton and other filtered foods found in the sediment of the aquarium and filter foods placed in the aquarium. An excellent feed for tanks that have some sediment on the bottom of the tank is to stir up weekly the sediment to place it in the water for your Blue Palm and your other filter feeders.

Live Coral's on Sale!

  Rasta Leather
Sinularis Flexibillis

Also called Spaghetti leather
100's of tentacles. Super long, super flowing, beautiful coloration
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.
Feeding:  Although the leather coral seeks it's nutritional needs from more than one place, its main source of energy comes from the minute algae zooxanthellae which supplies the coral with a steady stream of energy and nutrients. A secondary food source comes from the micro plankton and other filtered foods that the leather coral traps in its tentacles during ocean waves and currents. In the reef aquarium, the addition of bottled trace elements such as iodine and strontium should supplement the water to ensure good health.

 Pitoa Island Neon Green Cabbage Leather
Sinularia brassica


Description:The Neon Green Cabbage Leather is one of the brightest leather corals available in the aquarium trade. Its brilliant neon green coloration "Pops" any where it's placed in the reef aquarium it will be a stunner. Unlike the popular toadstool leather or finger leather corals the Neon Green Cabbage Leather grows flat along the rock and will continue to grow along the rock landscape it is placed on. When the Neon Green Cabbage Leather is fully open you will see numerous 1/16th of an inch polyps all along the leather. Just like all leather corals, there will be periods where the cabbage leather will not have polyps showing and will actually shed its outer skin. This is a normal process leather corals of all types go through. When the polyps return the Neon Green Cabbage Coral will be larger and looking better than it did before! Once established in your aquarium the Neon Cabbage Leather is easily propogated by cutting pie shaped wedges with a sterile razor blade and letting them heal and grow in the same reef aquarium they were originally in..

Requirements The Neon Green Cabbage Leather requires moderate to strong water flow. Lighting can be from moderate to high, from Power Compacts, LED's and T5's to metal halides. We have found they grow and look best under a lighting spectrum of between 14K to 20K.

Placement: You can mount the Neon Green Cabbage Leather Coral using any IC Gel glue or marine putty on any exposed rock or ledge in the middle of the reef aquarium where it can recieve moderate water flow and moderate to high lighting of the correct specturm. Leave some room around them for growth so they do not intrude on another corals space. Make sure that currents will be able to supply them with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Leave an adequate distance between the cabbage leather and neighboring corals, as they will expand and grow and need the room.

Feeding:  Although the leather coral seeks it's nutritional needs from more than one place, its main source of energy comes from the minute algae zooxanthellae which supplies the coral with a steady stream of energy and nutrients. A secondary food source comes from the micro plankton and other filtered foods that the leather coral traps in its tentacles during ocean waves and currents. In the reef aquarium, the secondary source is from the addition of bottled zoo planktons, and other filter foods and trace elements.

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.

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.

"Fruitloops" Zoa's
Zoanthus sp.


Description Zoanthid polyps are easy to keep which makes them a good choice for beginner reef aquarists. Our aquacultured bright eagle eye zoas are one of the classic saltwater Zoanthid morphs currently popular. There are 10 or more polyps growing on each frag. Zoanthid polyps are all fast growing and adjust to most lighting. In good water parameters they will reproduce easily in the reef aquarium by budding which will increase the size of their colony.
Feeding and diet:They contain the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which will provide almost all of their nutritional requirements. Supplementing its diet with the addition of trace elements will help to insure its continued good health.

Coral Placement: Place Zoanthid corals low to medium height in the aquarium. Within a week or two if conditions are correct they will open fully.

Difficulty Level: Easy

Note: When Zoanthid corals are shipped, it is perfectly normal for them to arrive totally wrapped in wet paper towel with a very small amount of water/moisture in the bag. Zoanthids will slowly acclimate to your aquariums lighting and water flow. To be fully open it may take from several days to a few weeks. Be patient it is totally worth it!

Metallic Green Star Polyp Coral
Description:Very hardy, light and water tolerant, Metallic Green Star polyps are extremely hardy and can survive most reef tank conditions. They prefer moderate water motion. They do well within a wide range of temperature from as low as 72º to as high as 84ºF. Not very aggressive but they have an encrusting growth pattern, which can lead to encroachment on its neighbors. Best method to keep this from happening is just to trim it back as it grows and place the new growth where you wish to have more beautiful Metallic Green Star polyps. Most of their requirements are met just from sunlight. This is called being photosynthetic. It means they do not require feeding. Since they tolerate a wide range of water flow and light they can be placed most anywhere in the reef tank. A great beginner coral and excellent for beginner propagation. Metallic Green Star polyps are easily propagated by cutting a section of the purple mat from the main colony using scissors and attaching it to a piece of live rock with a rubber band or reef glue.

Diet and location Requirements: The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within their bodies is responsible for providing the majority of their nutritional requirements via the algae's light driven process called photosynthesis. They also will benefit from weekly feedings of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding coral and invertebrates. As always we recommend the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water.

Colonies of zoanthid polyps are easy to frag and can spread to cover a surface rapidly under the proper conditions. Colors can vary and photos are representative only.

Feeding and diet: The Zoanthid coral's diet is totally from filter feeding out of the water, micro plankton and other filtered foods. Feed your tank either phytoplankton, brine shrimp, or any of the frozen or powdered foods for filter feeders. In the reef aquarium, the addition of bottled trace elements such as iodine and strontium should supplement the water to ensure good health at all times.

Tank Requirements: Zoanthid colonies require moderate flow to carry food to them and waste away from their polyps. Lighting requirements vary some depending on the variety. More brightly colored zoanthid colonies can require higher light than more subdued color polyps.

Difficulty Level: Easy

Aquacultured Yellow Lined Clove Polyps
Description:Clove Polyps are also commonly referred to as Eight Tentacle Polyps, or Encrusting Polyps. Nomally just green tones with a beige backround, these are a special morph we found and have aquacultured that have the destinctive green in color but with bright yellow lines that are visible under actinic and other the lighting favoring the blue hues of our reef tanks. They are colonial animals with several individual polyps attached to a single piece of live rock. They grow well in the established reef aquarium by encrusting over adjacent rock work. Because they can be easily stung and damaged by other aggressive corals they need adequate space between themselves and other corals. They are not difficult to maintain and require moderate lighting combined with moderate water movement.

Diet and location Requirements: The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within their bodies is responsible for providing the majority of their nutritional requirements via the algae's light driven process called photosynthesis. They also will benefit from weekly feedings of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding coral and invertebrates.

Bright Red Chile Coral
Nephthyigorgia sp.
Excellent Beginner Coral Chile Coral, bright red with white polyps
Description In the ocean Chili Coral (Nephthyigorgia sp.) tends to form small colonies on shady reef slopes. The tissue is usually some shade of red,with white polyps that extend to feed. Colonies typically stay under about six inches in height and do best when in a shaded areas such as in a cave or under a ledge, or just in lower light level reef aquariums. Since Chili Coral is a non-photosynthetic coral (does not feed off of light), and therefore does not require lighting to thrive it is an excellent choice for lower light aquariums. Since the Chile Coral is not photosynthetic, it must be fed fine particulate invert food in the home aquarium. The visually-stunning Chili Coral boasts equally colorful alternate common names including Strawberry Coral, Chili Cactus Coral, Red Chili Coral, Chili Sponge, Red Finger Soft Coral and Devil's Hand.

Feeding and diet:The chile coral's diet is totally from filter feeding out of the water, micro plankton and other filtered foods. Feed your tank either phytoplankton, brine shrimp, or any of the frozen or powdered foods for filter feeders. In the reef aquarium, the addition of bottled trace elements such as iodine and strontium should supplement the water to ensure good health at all times.

Tank Requirements: An established reef aquarium aquascaped with ample live rock overhangs and ledges provides an ideal environment. The Chili Coral requires low lighting levels combined with a moderate level of indirect water movement.
Place the Chili Coral underneath live rock overhangs and out of direct bright light to prevent damaging stress. The Chili Coral will not usually fully open in direct water current. Water flow provided by a powerhead or wavemaker directed at the glass or nearby rock is ideal. Though peaceful, the Chili Coral (and all soft corals) should be given ample space between neighboring corals or anemones to accommodate for growth.

Aquacultured Australian Bright Green Duncan Coral
Duncanopsammia sp.

Description Our clusters of aquacultured bright green duncans have between 3 and 7 heads. This coral grows new heads very quickly if you provide weekly feedings of frozen mysis or brine shrimp. It is attached to a man made rock base. The colonies form via long, tubular corallites with neon green oral discs and polyps that stay extended day and night. Native to the deeper waters of Western and Northern Australia and the South China Sea. This corals natural location is in deep waters on soft and often muddy substrates or shallow shady turbid areas. Place in low to moderate current areas with low to moderate light in the home reef aquarium. This coral is peaceful and does well with other non-aggressive corals and invertebrates.

Feeding and diet:Duncan corals feed on meaty foods such as brine shrimp, baby mysis shrimp and zooplankton which we enrich with selcon. Just like every other coral, we recommend to also add to the water calcium, strontium, and trace elements.

Coral Placement: Place the Duncan coral low to middle of your tank.

 Emerald Green Devils Hand Leather Coral
Sarchophyton Sp.
Description The Emerald Green Leather Coral from Idonesia is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium and make an excellent coral for the beginning through expert reef aquarist. The Emerald Green Devils Hand Leather Coral is also referred to as Sarcophyton Coral, Rose Leather Coral, or Trough Coral. They are found in various shades of brown, blue, green, or yellow. It is difficult to identify many species because they all have the similar appearance of a mushroom or toadstool, each with a distinct stalk and capitulum (cap). As they grow older, they develop a folded appearance. Leather Corals are relatively peaceful, but adequate space should be provided between them and other corals in the reef aquarium. Culturing by the experienced hobbyist is often accomplished by cutting off a portion of the Corals crown and attaching that piece to live rock or placing it in the sandy bottom of the reef aquarium.

Tank Requirements:
Leather Corals require medium to high lighting combined with medium to strong water movement. For continued good health, they will also require the addition of iodine, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

Feeding and diet:The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within their bodies is responsible for providing the majority of their nutritional requirements via the algae's light driven process called photosynthesis. They also will benefit from weekly feedings of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding coral and invertebrates. As always we recommend the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water.

Aussie Big Polyp Ultra Blastomussa Wellsi Colonies
Blastomussa Wellsi


Description: The Blastomussa Coral is also called the Blastomussa Pineapple Coral. What we have in stock right now are ultra colonies out of Australia, where some of the nicest, brightest colonies come from. You will also hear it referred to sometimes as a Swollen Brain Coral. Its beauty far exceeds that of any other coral in the brain family.
A coral in the large polyp stony (LPS) family the round swollen discs when open resembles a mushroom anemone. Found in Red, Green, Blue, Brown, or a combination of some of these colors. In this case we are offering the Red Blastomussa with possibly a 2nd color of bright neon green showing when fully opened. The Blastomussa Coral does well in an established reef aquarium and we feel it is a moderately hardy coral.

Placement: Place Blastomussa on the bottom or lower portion of the tank. Being a peaceful coral, keep enough between it and any stinging corals since it cannot defend itself. A low water current combined with a moderate light level will make a wonderful home for this coral.

Food and diet: The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within their bodies is responsible for providing the majority of their nutritional requirements via the algae's light driven process called photosynthesis. They also will benefit from weekly feedings of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding coral and invertebrates. As always we recommend the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water.
