Connection's Incredible Corals
When you buy live corals from Aquatic Connections live coral
selection, you can be assured you will buy live aquarium corals
that have been pampered and properly cared for.
Like any coral that has been collected and shipped halfway
across the globe, ours arrive, understandably, in need of some
rejuvenation. Which is why we do our best to downright pamper
them during their stay at Aquacon. Their treatment begins with
a slow-drip acclimation into large, luxurious holding tanks.
There, the wave action caresses them with bursts ranging from
a gentle sway to an exhilarating turbulent rush. This loosens
the sand and bacteria from their long journey. Their polyps awaken
to a fresh beginning.
We're part holding tank, part
coral spa! Next,
your coral will be bathed under growth-stimulating 1000-watt,
6,700K lighting to bring out extension and wake up the zooxanthellae.
Water quality will remind them of home; clean, fresh, and stable
with the occasional burst of plantktonic nutrition. Here, your
corals will remain, until they're sold and packaged. We send
them on their way by packing them with the utmost care, yet most
stringent quality. All of this to ensure that each coral sold
will reach your hands in the best condition possible. Many, possibly
better off than they were days and weeks before.
Special Notes: Please note unless stated within the description,
the picture(s) of the item(s) for sale are generic pictures of
items that we have had in stock at some point. Due to differences
in animals the item you receive may not look identical to the
picture, however we hand choose each item for health and beauty.
Another factor you need to consider is that different aquarium
systems have different lighting, the spectrum of light, the wattage
and kelvin, and even the type of lighting (ie: PC vs. VHO vs
HQI vs Mogul Halide) all will make colors look very different.
Aquatic Connection Live tanks are lit by 400 watt 20K HQI Halide
bulbs. We use these bulbs because it provides the perfect balance
of natural white light along with the deeper actinic blue that
corals need to bring out the correct colors and to thrive off
of. If your tank consists of all daylight (10K's, 65K's etc.)
with minimal actinic lighting, your not going to get as many
of the vibrant true colors from your corals as you would with
the correct lighting combination. If you need better descriptions
of our corals or help with lighting, please feel free to contact
