ORA Certified Hatchery
Grade A
Picasso Clownfish
Amphiprion percula

Description: ORA Picassos are a highly sought after variant of the Percula Clownfish. The Picasso variant occurs naturally in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea however it is exceptionally rare. ORA’s strain of Picassos originated in 2004 from a single wild male from the Solomon Islands, which we paired with a typical Onyx female. In subsequent years we have added additional wild collected Picassos into our breeding program. Most Picasso clowns in the industry can be traced back to ORA’s breeding program.
These beautiful fish exhibit extra white mainly on their center stripe. Each individual fish is unique and hand-selected by our experienced graders. These fish are graded on the amount of white present, the oddness of the striping, and the rarity of the markings. ORA does not use a definitive set of criteria for grading Picassos. Our fish may be radically marked on one side and merely have an extra blob of white on the other.

ORA Grade A Picassos reach a seller size of 1.5 inches at approximately 7 – 8 months of age. Many of these juveniles have yet to develop the characteristic black in the mid-body. The black pigment will develop as the fish ages until maturity. We were hoping that our Picasso broodstock would produce thousands of Picasso offspring every year, however only a small percentage of fish from each Picasso spawn qualify to become Picassos or Premium Picassos. The majority of Picasso offspring look like ordinary Perculas.

FACTOID: The most important benefit of purchasing tank bred clownfish are that by purchasing a tank bred clownfish you are protecting the oceans of the world from destruction. Further benefits are important as well. Tank bred clownfish are hardier than their wild caught counterpart and additionally very accustomed to aquarium life and aquarium food..

ORA Certified Hatchery
Platinum Percula Clownfish
Amphiprion percula

Identification:The Platinum Percula is nearly all white variation of the True Percula Clownfish. The result of years of selective breeding, the Platinum Percula is derived from the famous Picasso Clownfish. This striking white clownfish develops orange and then black fins as it matures, and retains some orange color in the face.Not to be confused with the Snowflake Clownfish, which is actually A.ocellaris, the Platinum Percula show none of the original stripes characteristic of the species. While the middle stripe of the snowflake is wide and has jagged edges,the Platinum Percula is continuosly white from head to tail. No other clownfish from the wild or from breeders,has ever come close to appearance of the Platinum Percula.This is the rarest of any clownfish color morph ever developed, and it will be the ultimate prize for any serious clownfish connoisseur. While experimenting with pairing Picassos,even the breeders at ORA were surprised to find this extraordinary result.As the juveniles began to grow-out ORA noticed the development of black fins on the rapid growers. At first the dorsal,pectoral,ventraln and caudal fins appeared to be clear with some orange color. Then some black pigment appeared on the fins, as true perculas typically do produce more black color as they age. Finally ORA observed the full black fin color develop, and nothing looked more astonishing than black fins on a whiteclownfish. These fish will be shipped as juveniles with very little fin color,but expect to observe the full color develop over time. Each one is different and everyone a true beauty.

Tank-Bred Colored Yellow/Orange Hippocampus Reidi
Hippocampus Reidi

Orange/Yellow Hippocuampus Reidi, eating frozen mysis shrimp
Will change color depending on background from orange to yellow.
Description: The Tank-Bred Hippocampus reidi., is a large colorful fish that many hobbyists consider the most attractive of all the seahorses. They inhabit the waters in the Eastern Pacific Ocean on the West coast of the United States. The coloration of these seahorses is from yellow to orange and sometimes they will actually show off a red coloration. Their coloration may change in the aquarium, and is highly dependent on the colors of its environment. Recommend to keep the tank well lit with colorful gorgonians and colorful algae plants to keep the coloration at its brightest.

Tank Bred seahorses are quite hardy, and a smart alternative to wild caught seahorses. We highly recommended to NOT combine tank bred seahorses with wild caught sea horses due to the passing of serious disease issues.

PH: At or close to 8.2

Salinity: The salinity should be kept stable at 1.022

Daylight Hours: 11-14 per day.

Temperature: Tropical Seahorses are happy to be kept between 75-80 degrees F.. This temperature is achieved by using a reliable heater-stat.

Heat spikes: Quick increases in temp will not be tolerated, leading to stress and possible disease.

Feeding: These seahorses are trained to eat enriched frozen Mysis Shrimp which they will eat through adulthood as their the daily food. We also suggest AlgaGen Tisbe as their other primary food. Both should be fed daily. Tank-bred seahorses will feed from the water column and the tank bottom. Old food and excreta must be cleared away each morning and night.

Tank Size: It is very important to provide a tank that is not only tall enough but also wide enough to provide enough space for the seahorse to move around comfortably. A minimum tank size of 55 gallons is recommended for the Kuda seahorses, for up to two.

Tank Mates: Tank mates such as Pipefish are ideal. Some type of branchy decoration should be provided in the tank for the seahorse to latch on to with its tail so that it can be comfortable.

Tank-Bred Blue Hippo Tang
Paracanthurus hepatus

Special Note: The Blue Hippo Tangs offered here have been reared in captivity and will accept readily available prepared foods. They are fully acclimated to aquarium life and much more hardy than wild collected specimens.  

Description: A tank-Bred fish is the best choice for the less experienced aquarist because they were reared in captivity and will readily accept readily available prepared foods for Surgeon Tangs. Due to the extra cost in Tank Breeding, there is an increase in cost for these tank-raised Blue Hippo Tangs, but we feel it is more than well worth the cost. Shy, especially when first introduced to the aquarium, the Blue Tang should be provided with coral, live rock, or other suitable shelter sites. The Blue Tang will lie on is side (often startling those unaware of it's behavior) if it cannot find a suitable hiding place, or when first introduced into the aquarium. This species is usually more docile than many other Surgeonfishes, and gets along great in a peaceful community or reef tank.

Recommended Tank size: When full grown, they need a 150 gallon or larger aquarium with a number of hiding places and plenty of room to swim.Smaller size Blue Tangs can be housed in 70 gallon and larger aquariums. To keep multiple specimens, you must introduce the entire lot at once into the marine system.

Food and diet: In nature it feeds almost entirely on brown macroalgae and should be offered a wide a variety of foods including plenty of algae. Although Tangs will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium, it is important that they are offered plenty of seaweed and algae. These are the foods that will strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression and improve their overall health. Offer dried seaweed tied to a rock or use a veggie clip, and feed at least 3 times per week. Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad and Ocean Nutrition are all ideal products and are very easy to use.

Reef Compatability: Great reef fish. Typically fares notably better in reef aquariums than in fish only tanks.

Aquarium Invertebrate Specials

Arrow Crabs
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
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.

Blue Dot Sea Hare

A Terrific Cleanup Crew Member Loves to Eat Hair Algae!

Description:This unusual sea hare is rarely found in the aquarium trade. It has a dark brown or green body with bright blue spots across its surface. The name "Sea Hare" comes from their vegetarian diet as well as the two fringes on their head that look like rabbit ears, especially when the animal is lifting the front of its body and looks like a rabbit sitting up on its back legs.

Sea Hares are sought after for their voracious appetites, feeding on macro and filamentous algae. They will feed on dried algaes if the live algae supply dwindles and should be fed to avoid starvation. These slugs are reef safe and will not eat corals or polyps, but their size makes them cumbersome in smaller aquariums.

If stressed, a sea hare may release a blue-purple ink into the water. While unsightly and irritating to some sensitive organisms, the aquarium's filtration system will usually take care of removing this ink. A water change will also help remove it from the aquarium.

Food and diet:If regular feedings of Algae are not possible, it will need a supplemented diet with algae sheets laced in the aquarium with an algae clip or rubberbanded to a rock. This is a Restricted item since it may be killed by getting sucked into pumps or powerheads. Therefore it does have an arrive alive guarantee, but is not covered by our extended Guarantee. We recommend sponge or screen covers be placed on dangers to avoid nudibranchs from being sucked in.It is also sensitive to high levels of nitrate and will not tolerate copper-based medications.

Purple Pin Cushion Urchins
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.

Astrea Turbo Snails
(Astraea tecta)
Description:Astrea Turbo 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 Turbo 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 Turbo 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 Turbo 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: The Peppermint Shrimp is a smart addition to all reef aquariums because of its desire to eat nuisance glass anemones (Aiptasia). The body of the Peppermint shrimp is somewhat transparent with red stripes that run parallel along their body. Peppermint Shrimp are very easy to care for and prefer to be kept in groups. They should be fed daily and will not harm other shrimp. Peppermint Shrimp grow quickly and will molt. Leftover bodies are not dead shrimp, you are seeing the exoskeleton remains of what was shed, when the molt. In order for Shrimp to grow they need to shed their exoskeleton, a process called "molting", which allows them to remove their restricting shell and begin a new one. Often times in the home aquarium Shrimp will leave this translucent shell in full view so it can serve as a distraction while the Shrimp finds a hiding place and allows its new shell to harden.

  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.

 Horseshoe Crabs

Sand Stirer , Detritus Eater
Ancestors of horseshoe crabs date back over 450 million years--long before the age of the dinosaurs. The Horseshoe Crab is very strange in appearance and can be unique specimens for any aquarium. Very hardy , they can be a good choice for beginners. Horseshoe Crabs are bottom dwellers, and in the wild usually burrow in mud or sand flats in tidal areas or estuaries. The Horseshoe Crab is greenish brown to light tan in color. The dorsal part of the body is rounded, and it has a long spike for a tail. The Horseshoe Crab is really not a crab, but more closely related to spiders and mites, belonging to a group of animals called chelicerates. Horseshoe Crabs can grow quite large. The female horseshoe crabs usually grow larger than the males, with their body reaching a maximum size of 12 inches in diameter. When small, they are very efficient scavengers and are great for aerating and maintaining sand beds. In the aquarium, your Horseshoe Crab will not grow that large, and will generally do best in a sandy substrate. They are very helpful in cleaning an aquarium through sifting through sand and gravel in search of worms and any organic debris. It will move the substrate around almost nonstop in its search for food. The Horseshoe Crab will move about, scavengiong detritus or other materials that have fallen to the bottom. Although it may find some food scavenging, its diet should be supplemented with meaty items such as pieces of squid and shrimp.

Aquacultured Red Mangrove Plants

species: Rhizophora mangle
Aquacultured = No Pesky Pests are along for the ride!
Excellent addition for Water Quality Management.
 The Hawiian Red Mangrove is both a freshwater and marine plant that can be used as a natural method of filtration and means of Natural Nitrate Reduction in either saltwater or freshwater aquariums. These Mangrove Sprouts have been taken directly off the tree, therefore they can be placed in either Saltwater or Freshwater.
Excellent addition for Water Quality Management: Mangroves absorb nutrients from the water in order to grow, and help lower nitrates and phosphates in the aquarium. The use of mangroves plants for 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, so mangroves are drawing lots of attention. Mangroves 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 mangroves you will notice your protein skimmer working less and less all the time. The more the mangroves grow and mature, 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. Last note, It is important for nutrient control in the aquarium, that when leaves are dropped from the plant that they are not allowed to decay in the aquarium.
How do I plant Mangroves? The mangrove can be planted in an open topped aquarium, illuminated sump, or refugium. When adding a mangrove to your aquarium, you can plant it directly in the sand or gravel, use a rubber band or tie to attach it to the top of rocks or driftwood, or allow it to take root in the water with no substrate. The roots will quickly take hold in either a sand substrate or in live rock. When planting a mangrove be sure the growth tip are out of the water. If you have a canopy over your aquarium, simply plant the tuber towards the back of the aquarium, so it will eventually grow through the area where the plumbing is located.
Shipping Notes: Hawiian Red Mangroves are shipped Damp. They do best that way. When received, we have found that exposure to less light for the first few days of acclimation is better.

 Live MacroAlgae Saltwater Reef Tank Refugium Gracillaria  
Aquacultured Assorted Color Gracillaria
Gracilara Sp.

Aquacultured means No Pesky Pests are along for the ride!
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 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.

Purple Corky Finger
Briareum asbestinum
Corky Finger, Briareum asbestinum
Description: The Purple Corky Finger is also known as the Deadman's Fingers, Moss Coral, Encrusting Gorgonian, or simply Briareum. It has long, grass-like polyps which are normally extended continuously, retracted only when disturbed. Briareum asbestinum can have multiple forms including encrusting, flat or knobby crusts, or upright branches as pictured above. The polyps will vary in many color variations, size, and shape. The Purple Corky Finger 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.
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.
Feeding: For continued good health, it will require the addition of iodine, calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. Some species of Briareum are toxic. It is highly photosynthetic, containing the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae from which it receives most of its nutrients, but may also capture some particulate matter.

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.

Feeding: The Purple Feather Gorgonian should be fed a few times a week with a filter feeding food. Provide a diet of live or frozen baby brine shrimp, Marine Snow, Bioplankton and other suitable micro foods.

Phylum Porifera
One of the rarest and most beautiful of all the sponges, when this one is in stock grab one! 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 and coloration 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.

 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.

Management:The Red 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.

Ultra Maxi Mini Carpet Anemone's
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.

 Pink 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. 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: Feed it chopped silversides, shrimp, krill, and mussels, fresh chopped fish (from your grocery store), as well as frozen carnivore preparations. Feed no more than once a week or less.

 Purple Long Tentacle Anemone
Macrodactyla doreensis

Description:As the name implies, Purple Long Tentacle Anemones have very long (up to 5-6 in.), smooth, thick tentacles sometimes with longitudinal stripes extending into the oral disk. The tentacles originate from a round flat oral disk, distinguishing it from the condylactis anemone. The foot of the base is almost always bright red or orange. They are hardy if kept under moderately good lighting, power compacts or better. Accepted by Clarki, Maroon, Sebae, Tomato, and Skunk clowns
.
Requirements: The Purple Long Tentacle Anemone requires a tank with good lighting and good water movement. The aquarium should have a variety of sandy and rocky locations as this animal oftentimes can move about and seek refuge in a place it prefers. This species of Purple Long Tentacle Anemone prefers to bury its foot into the sandy bottom, and will oftentimes attach itself to the bottom of the aquarium glass, where its column is completely buried in the sand for protection. When first introducing this anemone into the display, it is best to try and dig out an area of the sand bed where you prefer it will reside, while decreasing the flow rate during this time so that its not blown around the display. Doing so will allow the anemone time to settle in and bury its foot completely into the sand bed. Once in place, carefully move some sandy substrate around the column and increase the flow rate back to the normal output.

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.

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.

Blue Linckia Starfish
Linckia laevigata

Description:The Blue Linckia, is a five-armed (once in a while 6-armed) Starfish exotically colored in blue. These Stars feed on algae found on aquarium glass, rockwork, and substrate. 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.

 Sand Sifting Starfish

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. Starfish must never receive exposure to air during acclimation.

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.

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.

Aquacultured Blue Xenia
Anthelia spp.

Tank raised means a healthier & more colorful coral

Description: 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. Under proper conditions, these colonies will grow out and cover adjacent rock, giving a mat like appearance. Waving Hand Corals can range in color from pink, blue, brown, or tan and their polyps have the distinctive eight-leaved tentacles associated with all of the members of this family. While they do not pulse like xenia corals, they do wave in the water currents, which gives them their common name. This species is best kept by a moderate to advanced reef aquarist in a mature reef aquarium with strong water movement and intense quality lighting.

The Xenia we ship you is many generations aquacultured. 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.

Care Level: Moderate

Temperature: 77-83°F

Salinity: 1.025-1.027

Alk/dKH: 8-10dKH

Calcium: 380-450ppm

Magnesium: 1250-1350ppm

Lighting: Moderate to high lighting levels with either power compact fluorescents or T5 fluorescents should be adequate for aquariums 25 inches in height or less. On deeper aquariums, metal halides should be used to make sure that adequate lighting intensity makes it to the bottom of the aquarium where Waving Hand Corals are typically placed.

Water Flow:
Indirect medium to strong water currents are required, along with excellent water quality.

Additives: Additions of iodine appear necessary for best health and pulsation, Trace Elements for continued good coloration.

Feeding: Blue Xenia (Blue Anthella), receive much of their nutrition through their symbiotic zooxanthellae algae that is hosted within their bodies. This algae creates energy for the coral through photosynthesis, which requires moderate to high intense aquarium lighting. This species is also a filter feeder and requires strong currents that it can filter plankton or other micro foods from the current to supplement its nutritional needs.

Notes: Acclimates best in an established reef aquarium. Ideally this species should be kept in an established reef aquarium so that it can supplement its diet with planktonic foods via filter feeding. It is important to position this species away from other soft corals and sessile invertebrates and to allow adequate room for growth, as under the right conditions, this species can grow rapidly. Under correct conditions, the Waving Hand Coral will spread laterally over adjacent rockwork forming a mat like appearance on the rocks.

 Julian Sprung's
Red Sea Pink & White Pom-Pom Xenia
Xenia umbellata

The fastest pulsing Xenia

Description: Red Sea Pink and White Xenia, Xenia Umbellata is the crown jewel among xenia species. It's hardy and very attractive with fast pulsing action. It does not grow as fast as other xenias, but pulses much quicker then tree xenia and has a nice white/pink color exact color depending on water chemistry and lighting conditions. Like all Xenia they are colonial animals with multiple individual polyps attached to a piece of solid substrate. They form stalks as they grow, and to reproduce. The eight-tentacle polyps can pump, or pulse, and many scientists believe the pumping action of the polyps slowly opening and closing is designed to dispose of gasses and waste. However, it is still unknown why these coral do pulse, and there are many water, lighting and nutrient factors involved. It is not necessarily a sign of ill health if they do cease to pulse.

The Xenia we ship you is many generations taquacultured. 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. Xenia Umbellata will reproduce 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. It will likely change its coloration depending on the lighting provided. Favia may require a longer acclimation period to intense lighting such as metal halides.

 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.

Description: Daisy Polyps, also referred to as Starburst, or Eight Tentacle Polyps. They are very easy to keep and grow quickly. They vary in color form green, tan, and white are what these beauties are. Polyps are very hardy and can recover from the most adverse condition. This is an excellent beginner coral. It's an excellent coral for the money because grows so quickly to create a lush coral reef by spreading over rock work. It grows like a mat of grass, so if it gets too large, simply trim with a razor. If desired, you can relocate the trimmings to another spot. It can even be directed to grow up the back side of a glass in a tank making a beautiful back drop.

Placement: Place 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.

Metallic Green Star Polyps
Metallic Green Star Polyps
Description: Metalic green star polyps are extremely hardy and can survive most reef tank conditions.They will tolerate fairly low light levels, but tend to develop brighter colors under brighter lighting such as multiple T5's . They prefer moderate water motion. They do well within a wide range of temperature from as low as 72º to as high as 84º F. Not very aggressive but they have an encrusting growth pattern, which can lead to encroachment on its neighbors.

A great beginner coral for propagation. Green Star polyps are easily propagated by cutting a section of the purple mat from the main colony using scissors and attached to a piece of live rock with a rubber band. After a few days the rubber band can be removed.

Placement: Place 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.

Watermellon/Bazooka Bubblegum
Chalice
Oxypora sp
Description: One of our hottest Chalice coral's, the Watermellon Taffy Chalice looks like a combination of sticky Bazooka Bubblegum stuck all over the outside of a delicious watermelon. Streaks and spots of glowing Bright Pink look almost 3D against the Aqua Green background color.
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.

Easter Egg Chalice
Oxypora lacera
Description: The Easter Egg Chalice is a hardy, fast growing show stopper featuring a raspberry pink pastel easter egg base color (hence the name) sprinkled with bright yellow oral disks. This hardy and fast growing coral has a thin plating growth form. The unique color combination of the Easter Egg Chalice has made this outstanding chalice one of our favorites and we are excited to be sharing it with other passionate hobbyists. They are fully matured as individual coral colonies. A true hobbyist frags, designed to be grown-out in the home reef aquarium.
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.

Hollywood Stunner Chalice
Oxypora sp
Description: The Stunner is a fast growing Chalice compared to most Chalices. It needs to be placed in the bottom two-thirds to middle of the reef aquarium, under a moderate water flow. 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.

 Green Bay Packers Zooanthid Polyps
Zoanthus sp.

Photo has not been touched up. This is the color you will see under 14K Metal Halide lighting. These are aquacultured polyps. Polyps are unique in that they use sand and other substrate material into their tissue to help create their actual structure. For the beginner or advanced reef keeper, PPE's are a great choice, they are quite hardy. Easy to maintain, Zoanthid Polyps called Zoa's require a medium light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, they will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water. They will reproduce easily in the reef aquarium by budding (splitting off a portion of their base or mouth), which will increase the size of their colony. They contain the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which provides some of their nutritional requirements. They will also benefit from additional feedings of microplankton or brine shrimp given to each individual of the colony.

Super Red Mushroom Rock
Actinodiscus sp.
Description:Super metallic red. 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. The spotted ones are usually blue or green with spots. The taxonomy of the various species is in a state of flux, and will probably continue to change.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. 

Lighting: Mushroom coral prefer either indirect light, or lower levels of light such as flourescent lighting, this is 1 time high power lighting is not prefered.

Water Current:To fully open mushroom corals prefer low water movement within the aquarium. 

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.

Green Finger Leather
Sinularia sp.

Description:Green Finger Leather Coral, Sinularia sp., brings depth to the aquascape of the home aquarium.
Tank Recommendations: Leather Corals are generally very hardy and will thrive in a properly maintained reef aquarium. Most need a moderate to strong water flow and tend to do very well under various types of reef tank fluorescent lighting. Metal halides are not needed. They are also easy to propagate in captivity by simply cutting them into coral frags.
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.

Tank Recommendations: Leather Corals are generally very hardy and will thrive in a properly maintained reef aquarium. Most need a moderate to strong water flow and tend to do very well under various types of reef tank fluorescent lighting. Metal halides are not needed. They are also easy to propagate in captivity by simply cutting them into coral frags.
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.

 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.

 Anchor Hammer Coral
Euphyllia ancora

Description:The Hammer Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral and often referred to as the Hammer Coral or Anchor Coral. Its common names are derived from the appearance of its hammer-, or anchor-shap at the top of each tentacle. Its polyps are visible throughout the day and night and hide its skeletal base. It may be green, tan, or brown in color, with lime green or yellow tips on the ends of its tentacles that glow under actinic lighting. It is moderately difficult to maintain, but with proper water conditions in the aquarium, it will thrive.

Elegance Coral
Catalaphyllia jardinei
Description:The Catalaphyllia or Elegance Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) also called the Elegant Coral. A true beauty, its polyps are extended during the day showing off its impressive color-tipped tentacles. Under actinic lighting, the fluorescent qualities are beautiful with flourescent greens, and tentacles of either blue, orange, or purple-which vary between branched or round and bulbous shapes.

Placement: The Catalaphyllia Elegance Coral is moderate to maintain in the reef aquarium and makes an excellent coral choice for the beginner to advanced hobbyist. Provide plenty of space in the reef aquarium between it and neighboring corals as it expands to twice its usual size during the day and will sting other corals in to close proximity.Place this one in a soft substrate. The soft substrate is less likely to irritate the fleshy underside of the coral when compared to the rockwork. Clownfish may accept this coral as its host if no anemone is present. Ideal reef aquarium conditions for the Elegance Coral should include moderate lighting with moderate water movement.

Feeding:For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. It will benefit from additional food fed daily in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp.

  Red Sun 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.
