Aquacultured and Maricultured Aquarium Coral

When you buy aquacultured 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.

Cultured corals are best.
Why you ask? There are two ways to help our environment with the depletion of the oceans coral reefs. We can either propagate corals in reef tanks, this is comonly called fragging, or we can purchase maricultured corals. Maricultured corals refer to corals that are raised in ocean lagoons under close supervision. Maricultured corals are a great step at relieving the stress on the natural environment but they don't have the advantages of reef aquarium grown "frags". Aquacultured corals are corals raised in reef aquariums. Although prices for aquacultured reef aquarium corals are relatively higher than maricultured specimens, you generally receive hardier specimens, conditioned to life in aquariums. Since they are grown under aquarium conditions and aquarium lighting, they are hardier and easier to acclimate then there wild or maricultured counterparts. Aquacultured reef aquarium corals typically recover from shipping stress much quicker then wild colonies or maricultured colonies. It is often just a matter of a week or two before the new captive grown coral begins to display growth.

Wild or tank raised, we do our best to downright pamper our corals during their stay at Aquatic Connection.
When you buy corals from Aquatic Connection, 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. Whether you are interested in Live Acropora corals, Aquacultured corals, SPS corals, LPS corals, mushroom corals, polyping corals, zooanthus corals, leather corals, or any other soft coral, their treatment begins with a slow-drip acclimation to equalize temperature, ph and alkalinity. Then they are placed in our holding tanks where the water quality is perfect. High current wave action cleans any built up slime coat and loosens the sand and bacteria from their long journey. Their polyps begin to extend and reach out to the available food and light.

For lighting our corals are placed in appropriate lighting depending upon there needs. For low light corals, they are placed under Power Compacts. On corals that need extreme lighting, we use only the best 1000-watt, 6,700K metal halide lighting to which will awaken the sleeping polyps and color enhancing zooxanthellae. Under these conditions our corals thrive and nourish, until we send them on their way by picking with the most stringent quality controls, and packaginging them with the utmost care, and shipping by overnight carrier, to your door. All of this to ensure that each coral sold will reach your hands in the best condition possible. .

The bright white tiny polyps that partially extend during the daytime give this coral a spotted appearence. Behavior is peaceful and can be placed close to other peaceful corals. For continued good health of your Mike Paletta Purple Porites it is recommended that calcium, strontium and oter trace elements be added.

In an aquarium lit by metal halides, Montipora Corals should be kept in a mid to low position, and under other lighting they should be kept in a mid to high position. To bring out the most intense coloration of this coral, we recommend metal halide lighting. For continued good health, they will require the addition of a two part calcium and buffer supplement in order to maintain a calcium level of 400-450 ppm and dKH of 8-12. They will benefit from the addition of zooplankton.

  Aquacultured
Purple TriColor Acropora

Actual color, not touched up 
We received some very exotic tricolored thin branched Acropora species from the Solomon Islands a while ago. They were referred to as a true Acropora nana. They tended to develop purple coloration over most of their surface area, and maintained their pigmentation quite well in captivity. We now have aquacultured specimens of this coral available. They have under great conditions been developing an intense purple coloration over the entire body surface. Perhaps it should be called a bicolor (purple with green polyps). The coral needs moderate to intense light to develop the purple over its entire surface. Purple branches can be maintained in weak to moderate lighting. The purple coloration will intensify under intense lighting. The growth rate of this Acropora Coral is much more rapid than most of the other corals found in an established reef aquarium. It can also be cultured and grown into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces, if conditions are ideal. For continued good health, it will require the addition of supplemental calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. The Purple Tri-color will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO, T-5's up to the more intense metal halides. Alter their position in the aquarium depending on the lighting, and provide at least 5 watts per gallon using one of the lighting systems mentioned above.

Why Phytoplankton:
Phytoplankton is very important to marine life. It is the primary producers in the ocean. Crucial to the development and survival of most, if not all marine animals . But what is phytoplankton? It is just a fancy word for tiny floating plants (such as diatoms and dinoflagellates), which serve the same role in the food chains of the oceans as grass and shrubs serve on land; namely small things eat them. Many coral reef animals feed directly on phytoplankton. Some essential nutrients provided by phytoplankton cannot be synthesized by animals, and therefore are extremely important components of a healthy diet.

Note: Lighting and coloration of corals: Please note not all corals from our tanks and lighting will look the same when they are in your tanks. Everybody's tanks have different lighting setups, spectrums, combinations, etc. Aquatic connection's tanks are lit by 400 watt 20K 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 corals please feel free to contact us.
