 Aquacultured Abalone

Abalone eat tons of algae including hair algae

Description: The Abalone is useful in reef aquariums because it eat tons of algae. An abalone has a single shell that covers its body and has many holes called apertures. The holes help circulate water over the gills. Abalone attach themselves strongly to rocks, using a muscular foot. They feed by trapping algae under their foot and scraping it off with their radula. It is generally nocturnal, finding refuge in holes or crevices in the rocks or coral during the day, and coming out to forage at night, using its foot to glide over the substrate and coral rubble. The foot attaches very firmly, so use extreme caution if attempting to remove it from glass or rocks.

The Abalone has a calcium-based shell which protects it from most predators, but requires the maintenance of proper calcium levels in the water for proper growth. Nitrates should be kept at low levels and it should never be exposed to copper based medications.

Food and diet:While its diet is almost exclusively algae, it would benefit from supplementation with dried seaweed, blanched lettuce, spinach, or Spirulina sheets/tablets.

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

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

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

Nerite Snails

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

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

 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 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.

Feeding: 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.

Peppermint Shrimp
Lysmata wurdemanni complex

Do you have pesky aptasia anenome's taking over your tank?
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.

Description: In the ocean, the Royal Starfish efficiently consumes decaying matter and uneaten food from the ocean floor. In the aquarium this hardy starfish takes care of your sandbed's detritus and uneaten food. Providing a natural manner to keep nitrates low and your aquarium floor clean. 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 Royal Starfish should be actively fed a variety of fish foods into the sand. Otherwise, this tank cleaner will quickly clean your aquarium of detritus and left over food, and then starve.
Notes: Starfish are intolerant of sudden changes in oxygen levels, salinity and pH of the water, and cannot tolerate copper-based medications.

 Purple Pin Cushion Urchin
Lytechinus vaniegatus
Description: The Purple Pincushion Urchins we ship are beautiful purple/green coloration. They are a small Urchin that has sharp protruding spines. They grow to only 2-3 inches. In Nature, these 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 in hiding spots in rockwork. Urchins are excellent algae eatersl and ike 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. Their colors range from all white, to white with pink or purple spikes, and sometimes they are all purple or all pink. 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.

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

 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.

Super Deal! Refugium Algae Kit

Refugium with all types of algaes
Today, marine aquariums almost demand a variety of marine algae. You get all the macro you need here to start a nice refugium. Get 3 different types of Macro algaes that are all beneficial to your aquarium.

Gracilaria, This is healthy stuff for your fish, it even helps cure lateral line erosion and is also the richest plant source of calcium.

Caulerpa,an important food source for many fish. Caulerpa releases organic acids and necessary substances such as vitamins and amino acids.

Chaetomorpha Chaeto, pronounced "kay-toe", also known as Spaghetti Algae, is a great way to naturally turn the nitrogenous compounds of your tank into plant food!!! The waste by-products of life, along with the light you provide for photosynthesis. It is an excellent macro algae for refugiums. 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.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. It should ideally be tumbled in an algae filter. This algae is sold by the bag and will arrive in a dense mat. Your copepods and amphipods will love this stuff. It is what they eat!

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

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

Pencil Urchins
Eucidaris tribuloides
Description: The pencil urchin, Eucidaris tribuloides, is a sea urchin that inhabits regions of the Atlantic Ocean.The Pencil Urchin, also known as theClub or Mine Urchin,it is a small reddish brown urchin with pencil-like spines protruding from its body. These spines are thicker than that of other urchins. But like all urchins, they act as a defensive mechanism against predators in nature. Some species of sea urchins, such as the slate pencil urchin (Eucidaris tribuloides), are commonly sold in aquarium stores because they are effective at controlling a reef tank's hair algae issues. During daytime hours the Pencil Urchin will spend its time sleeping near rocks, or corners of the aquarium. At night though, they will come alive, searching out algae such as its favorite hair algae or any other form of green algae for a meal.

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.

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.

Halimeda Plant

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

 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. 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.

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.

PhycoPure Reef Blend Phytoplankton
AlgaGen PhycoPure Reef Blend
PhycoPure™ Reefblend is made of 7 different types of LIVE microalgae as well as a dinoflagellate, zooxanthellae. Reefblend was therefore created as a LIVE food supplement for filter feeding marine aquarium inhabitants including the feeding of existing copepod populations in the tank. It is grown in natural seawater that has been ozonated, charcoal filtered and uv treated. PhycoPure™ Reef Blend offers a wide range of particle sizes and nutritional content that, individually, have been proven very effective in various aquaculture farms, and projects. Just like humans, animals require some level of variety in a food source. It is understandable that no single food provides 100% of the necessary nutrition required for good health. Hence the blend of phytoplankton in PhycoPure™ Reef Blend

Aquarists have reported great results feeding PhycoPure Reef Blend to Acropora (better polyp extension), all Euphyllia corals (Torch, Elegance, Frogspawn, Hammer), Gorgonians, Chili corals, Nephthea's, Carnation corals, Feather dusters, Tubeworms, Sponges, Mushroom corals, Leather corals, all types of Brain corals, Montipora's, Montastrea and Tubastrea species, and Certain anemones.

AlgaGen ReefPods™ Tangerine
ReefPods™ Tangerine
ReefPods™ Tangerine, "the big ones" – are packed with nutritious lipid reserves and pigments that will enhance health and color of small to medium reef fish and seahorses.

ReefPods™ Tangerine is a live culture of a large unidentified calanoid copepod, most likely in the Family Temoridae. Tangerine adult copepods live in the water column and will eat small suspended detritus particles and microalgae in the aquarium. They produce a large nauplii which is an excellent food for aquarium filter feeders and fish larvae. The adults are eaten by numerous water-column feeding fish such as clowns, dwarf angels, anthias and seahorses, to name just a few.

ReefPods™ Tangerine may be used as a starter culture to establish populations in marine aquarium refugiums or the main tank when PhycoPure™ CopePod Blend is added as directed. Although not as easily established as Tisbe, once established they will reproduce quickly, growing from nauplii to reproductive adults in about 15 days. They are sub-tropical and will thrive in normal aquarium temperatures and a wide range of salinities.

   Red/Orange Tree Sponge
Ptilocaulis sp
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: 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. The result will be a dead sponge.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.

Orange Fan Sponge

Description: We get these beauties along with our Sri Lanka, South Africa shipments. A Fan sponge is naturally shaped like a funel or hand held fan. The Fan sponge shape can vary quite alot, but all pieces look unique and beautiful. They are 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 arine aquarium. Like other Sponges, the Fan 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 Fan sponge requires moderate light and moderate water movement to survive. Many beginning hobbyists loose sponges because they do not provide enough light or water movement.

Tech Note: 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.

 Pink Tipped Reef Anemone's
Condylactis sp.
Description:The Pink-Tipped Reef Anemone is collected from the Western Atlantic Ocean in lagoons or on inner reefs, as individuals, or loose groups. The Pink-Tipped Reef Anemone is one of the most familiar and popular anemones in the aquarium trade. Its beautiful colors and inexpensive price make it popular, especially for beginners. In the aquarium a base size of about 2" to 3" is common. The base color is usually pearly white and the tentacles usually have magenta or pink 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 Reef Anemone is a hardy aquarium anemones, but this sea anemone species still needs good lighting 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. We recommend either power compact or T5 flourescent lighting.
The typical reef environment is what is needed for any of the many variations of Condylactis Anemone. 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 Reef 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 is much slower than the more tropical sea anemones.

Ultra Maxi Mini Carpet Anemone
Stichodactyla tapetum

Description:These are not died colors. This photo has not been touched up. Maxi Mini Carpet Anemone's are 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.
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.
Care Level:Easy
Aggresiveness:Peaceful
Lighting Requirements:Moderate, high power lighting not nescessary
Water Flow:Medium
Approximate Purchase Size: About 21/2 to 3 inches fully open. All Maxi Mini's shipped are Ultra's with colors such as Red, Orange, and Yellow. Since colors will vary by availability we cannot take color requests.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Identification: The Coral Beauty's color is absolutely stunning under aquarium lighting. Most happy in a tank with live rock, where it can swim through rock formations ,picking and looking for food. The Coral Beauty's have a deep purple head and fins with a red and orange body. An excellent addition to the reef or fish-only tank, quite hardy.
Recommended Tank size: Provide a 30 gallon or larger tank . It should have large amounts of live rock for hiding and grazing. The Coral Beauty angelfish can be kept successfully in reef type aquaria, but usually do not survive in fish-only aquariums. This is commonly due to specialized diet requirements that reef aquaria provide, in the way of naturally occurring micro-crustacean populations, but in some cases, may simply be due to the more complete natural ecosystem found in reef tanks.
Food and diet:In a saltwater aquarium they should be given a balanced diet. Variety is important, feed them foods from a wide range of food groups. Feeding them a single type of food for too long is generally a bad idea. They should be fed frozen foods that have both meat and algae (Formula One, Formula Two, Ocean Nutrition Pygmy Angel Formula are all good examples, algae and nori sheets as well as a pellet from a reputable brand like Spectrum.

Tank Bred
True Percula Clownfish
Amphiprion percula

Identification:True Perculas are some of the most classic and popular clownfish species we offer. These docile fish are close relatives of the False Percula (A. ocellaris), and the two species can be easily confused. Both species have orange bodies with three white stripes. In the Percula, the black margin around the white stripes is thick while in the False Percula, the black margin is very thin or absent. They also have a different number of spiny rays in the dorsal fin. These two species do not overlap in their natural distribution. The true percula is found only in Melanesia and Northern Australia. Mature specimens typically develop a striking black coloration between stripes. Perculas will typically spawn only about once a month with 300 to 600 eggs per spawn.

By purchasing a Tank Bred True Percula Clownfish you are protecting the oceans of the world from destruction. Further benefits are important as well. Tank Bred True Percula Clownfish are hardier than their wild caught counterpart and additionally very accustomed to aquarium life and aquarium food. These very popular fish are easy to keep in aquariums, although they do not get along with each other. Unless a hobbyist can get a mated pair, it is best to keep them one to a tank.
Minimum tank size: 30 Gallon

Feeding and diet: Omnivorous, feed varied diet that includes plant material
Reef Compatibility: Excellent Reef Fish

Level of Care: Easy

Acclimation Time: 3+ hours

Please note:Tank Bred True Percula Clowns will arrive with black outlines and a body of orange and white. As the fish matures, thetank bred True Percula will develop a more pronounced area of dark black between their white stripes. This will occur at between 9 and 11 months old.

Description:A hardy and peaceful fish that can live many years in a marine aquarium, the Pajama cardinalfish (Sphaeramia nematoptera) is a species of fish belonging to the Apogonidae family. It is a popular aquarium fish. It grows to a total length of about 2.5 inches and features distinctive red eyes and a broad dark vertical 'waistband' with scattered red spots toward the tail with a rainbow of other colors around the boday. It is considered to be of low vulnerability, and is distributed throughout much of the West Pacific, from Java to Fiji, and from the Ryukyu Islands south to the Great Barrier Reef. It will typically not bother other fish, or invertebrates and is therefore considered reef safe. As they are a social fish, it is common to keep them in groups of five or more. They have been known to breed in captivity, unlike most marine fish, but captive bred specimens are only rarely available.
Interesting fact:If they are kept with a long spined sea urchin they will hide among the spines when they feel threatened.
Recommended minimum tank size: For the best care, the Spotted Cardinalfish should be kept in small schools in suitably sized aquariums of at least 30 gallons. Because the Spotted Cardinalfish is a slow and methodical swimmer, it should be housed with peaceful tankmates and offered a plethora of hiding places amongst rockwork or plants. Most Spotted Cardinalfish will tend to hide in sea grass or other plants. Some may also camouflage themselves against long spined sea urchins. Like many other schooling fish, the Spotted Cardinalfish will form a strict hierarchy when kept in small groups within the aquarium. However, unlike some social fish, this member of the Apogonidae family does not use aggression to exert dominance over other cardinalfish.
Food and diet:The Spotted Cardinalfish requires a well balanced diet of meaty foods such as feeder shrimp, flake foods, pellet foods, marine flesh, bloodworms, and depending on its size, live feeder fish.
Level of Care: Easy
Reef Compatibility:Very good reef tank or community fish.

Ruby Red Dragonet
Synchiropus sp.

Recently discovered, this is a newly found breed of dragonet!
Description: A stunning ruby red dragonet of the genus Synchiropus has made a big splash in aquariums around the world. Starting in South Africa, then on to Singapore, Japan and Los Angeles. This is a newly found breed of dragonet. Aside from the intense *and uniform super bright red coloration, The Ruby Red Dragot sports a stunning pair of yellow ventral fins. In the males, the ventrals are decorated with a dark green band that is not seen in the smaller females. Another noteworthy ID-key for this dragonet is the large spot that sits on the base of the pectoral fins. Unlike most dragonets which can be a real tough cookie to identify, this “ruby red” species is easy and quite the looker. The intense coloration has brought a new found joy in keeping scooter blennies, which for years have been living in the shadows of their more colorful and psychedelic mandarin counterparts.

Recommended Tank size: It requires an established reef aquarium with plenty of live rock and live copepods 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. It is best kept with other docile fishes in a community reef aquarium.

 Red Sea Purple Tang
Zebrasoma xanthurus

Description:Brought into the aquarist trade back in the 1960's, and origionally collected only in the Red Sea, they have now been found in other locations such as the Gulf of Eden and in the Arabian Sea.

Food and diet: The Purple Tang is a herbivore, and should be provided with a varied diet that includes frozen and flake foods for herbivores as well as dried algae sheets. 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 foods 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.

  Yellow Tang
Zebrasoma flavescens (Hawaii)

Description: This is the most well known fish in the marine hobby. When sleeping or stressed a white line appears on the flanks of this fish. If you are going to keep more than one tang in the same tank it is best to introduce them simultaneously, or to introduce smaller individuals first. This is a good community fish. This species can be aggressive toward surgeonfish tankmates, especially members of its own kind or members of the genus Zebrasoma, after it has acclimated to its new home. It will also defend a preferred hiding place from intruders. Provide this active fish with plenty of swimming room, as well one or two hiding places.

Recommended Tank size: Will do best in a reef aquarium with plenty of live rock and hiding places. It requires a tank size of 125 gallon or larger. Like all Surgeon Tangs, it will be aggressive with other body shape look alikes such as Yellow Tangs or Sailfin Tangs but peaceful to other fish. If putting more than one in your aquarium, make sure to put all in at the same time.

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.

Royal Gramma Basslet
Gramma loreto


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

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

Minimum Tank Size: 30 gallon

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

 Blue Mandarins
Pterosynchiropus splendidus

Description:   The Blue Mandarin also called the Green 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. Though this animal is commonly referred to as a goby, this name is misleading. The Yellow Target Mandarin is a Dragonet in the family Callionymidae. The scale-less body of the fish is a blue or green color which has orange wavy lines across it. The tail is bright red with blue edging. Other colors can be found in the pattern as well.

Recommended Tank size: It requires an established reef aquarium with plenty of live copepods 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 Mandarin will also help to prevent brown flatworm infestations, which can be trouble for some reef aquariums. It is best kept with other docile fishes in a community reef aquarium.

Recommended Tank size: The minimum tank requirement is generally stated as 10 gallon with 30lbs or more of live rock. This is based on feeding requirements and not space requirements as the Mandarin is a very slow, docile fish. Perhaps more important than tank size is how heavily fed and nutrient rich a tank is, since this type of tank will generally support a higher copepod population than tanks run under more lean conditions.

Level of Care: Moderate

Food and diet:It requires an established reef aquarium with plenty of live copepods to feed on. You can supplement its diet with live copepods from AlgaGen called Tisbe Copepods.

  Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse
Paracheilinus carpenteri

Description: These wonderful fish make a fascinating display in the peaceful community tank. One of the most popular and best fish for a reef tank! Also called the Carpenter's Wrasse, Males are most spectacular when they "flash" (display) toward other fishes or their reflections in the aquarium glass. A beautiful bright orange coloration accenbted by brilliant viloet/blue striping. The dorsal fin on a Carpenteri Flasher Wrasse is a bright red that has incredible accents of different blues and yellow. An interesting side note is that all male Flasher Wrasse colors will intensify when in courtship is in process. Therefore by putting in a group of Carpenter Flashers with a male and females both present, that way the males will be more likely to frequenly present their colorful displays.A perfect reef and home aquarium fish, the Carpenteri Flasher's adult size is around 4 inches.

Recommendations: Recommended Tank size: A sand bed and Live Rock should be provided for all Fairy and Filament Wrasses.They will bury themselves in the sand to sleep or hide. Live Rock provides numerous small life forms that the Wrasses consider a tasty treat as well as another place to hide when they feel threatened. A 55 gallon or larger aquarium, either fish-only or reef, with a shaded area is recommended. The Exquisite Wrasse will not pick on corals or invertebrates, making them an ideal fish for the reef aquarium.

Food and diet:All Flasher Wrasses including the Carpenter Flasher need to be fed two to three times a day to be well nourished. They feed only on zooplankton which is easily available to the aquarist. The Carpenters Flasher does not pick on organisms found on live rock like other wrasses do, therefore without adequate feeding they will starve if not fed sufficient.

Aquarium Live Coral Specials


Nano Tank Mushroom Coral Pack's

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

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

 

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

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

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

  Red Sun Coral
Orange Tubastrea / Red Sun Polyps


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

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

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

Aquacultured Green Clove Polyps

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

True Blue Xenia

Tank raised means a healthier & more colorful coral

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

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

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

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

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

Red Sea Pink Pulsing Xenia

Red Sea Pink/White Xenia is the fastest pulsing Xenia!
Description: Red Sea Pink Xenia 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. 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.

  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 Frags
Sympodium sp.

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.

The intense blue and green color of our aquacultured Sympodium coral is beyond compare in soft corals. The coral is growing on a 1" frag chip with many small buds. 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.

 Colored Button Coral, Cynarina
(Cynarina Lacrymalis) 


Description:The Cynarina Button Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral. The Cynarina Button Coral is a round solitary coral, one of the largest single-polyped corals found in nature today, and available in many different color forms from pastel to bright and translucent to drab variations, Cynarina corals are unique specimens for the aquarium. Their range is from all over the Indian Ocean to the depths of the western Pacific all the way to the Red Sea.

The large, toothy skeletal "septa" can be seen clearly beneath the delicate tissue, and care should be taken when placing the coral to avoid damage to the flesh. The tissue may be entirely clear, allowing the underlying colors next to the skeleton to show through, or in some specimens the tissue is tinted green, red, orange, or patterned.

Sometimes, it is confused with its closest relative, Scolymia. We are selling here the beautiful Red/Pink Variety....While it is not an aggressive coral, it should be provided with adequate spacing between itself and other corals because it will expand to about twice its size. It is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium and makes an excellent choice for both the beginner or advanced reef aquarist.

In the Aquarium the Cynarina Button corals are hardy, unique additions to any reef tank. Because the large fleshy mantle can be damaged on rock, care must be taken to place only in an area where full extension won't be inhibited. This is a coral that doesn't need a lot of light or flow. On the other hand, they will eat a surprising amount of small chopped meaty foods like Krill or Chopped Prawn. They will extend polyps at night, not unlike those seen in scolymia.

Diet and location Requirements:It requires low to medium lighting combined with low water movement. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.Though they are photosynthetic, they will nocturnally extend polyps for feeding and will take meaty sustenance for nourishment.They should be fed small chopped meaty foods like Krill or Chopped Prawn at night.

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

 Red Hot Lava Chalice Coral Frag
Oxypora sp
Description: The Superbright Rede Hot Lava Chalice really glows under aquarium lighting and is offset by its beautiful red sparkles. Chalice Corals are known to exhibit some of the most beautiful combinations of colors and patterns, making them the perfect reef aquarium addition. The Red Hot Chalice coral grows thick with many bumps and lines that look like flowing lava hence the name. Not for the very beginner, but sturdy enough for the reefer with a little bit of experience, they are slow and steady growers under good conditions.
Placement: Place the Chalice Coral on an exposed rock along the bottom two-thirds of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Although it is not crucial, oxypora should be placed so that the plates are horizontal. Depending on the intensity of the light they may need to be placed low in the aquarium, or placed so that they get indirect Metal Halide light.
Lighting: oxypora species are a hermatypic/photosynthetic coral. They do well in all forms of lighting from strong halides, to T5's, even VHO and power compact lighting seem to bring about the dramatic colors.

  Aquacultured Green Dot Daisy Polyps

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 tan to green and white. 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. 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.
Important Note: Daisy Polyps are just about invisible when they arrive. When this coral arrives it will look like a rock without much on it. DO NOT THROW IT OUT! Daisy Polyps will take from 1 to 3 days under light and water flow for the polyps ti show themselves with there tentacles and flowerlike heads.

 Watermelon Mushroom Rock
Actinodiscus sp.
The Actinodiscus Mushrooms are also referred to as Mushroom Anemones and Disc Anemones. They were previously in a genus called Discosoma. These corals display a wide variety of colors, textures, and patterns. Some are solid colors, whereas, others are striped or spotted. Striped varieties are usually green. They are hardy and relatively easy to maintain, and under the right conditions, will multiply and spread very rapidly. In general, they need a medium light level and a low to medium water flow within the aquarium, although different species may have different requirements. They are semi-aggressive and require adequate space between themselves and other corals and sessile invertebrates.
Notes: Place Mushrooms along the bottom half of the aquarium on an exposed rock. Make sure that currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements.

Metallic Green/Hairy Mushroom Rock
Rhodactis indosinensis

It is very easy to maintain in the reef aquarium, and a good choice for the beginner hobbyist. It is somewhat aggressive, however, and can harm sessile invertebrates and overgrow other inhabitants of the reef. It often grows in shallow water, so it prefers a medium to high light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium. It reproduces by fission or laceration, and will do so in the home aquarium provided that water conditions are adequate, sometimes causing over-population. A small portion of the base or mouth will separate from the parent polyp and grow into a full sized mushroom within a few months.

Red/Orange Tree Soft Coral
Umbellulifera sp

Orange Tree Soft Coral does best in areas of the tank
with somewhat shaded lighting.
Description:The Red/Orange Tree Coral resembles harder to keep Dendronephthya genus, fortunately for the hobbyist, it is much easier to keep. The coral's color are shades of a deep orange.
Placement: The Red/Orange Tree Coral grows at ocean depths, under ledges and such, therefore it requires lower lighting levels in the aquarium or in bright aquariums, locate or create a shaded area to place it in. The Red/Orange Tree Coral will not polypp well if a direct water current is hitting it, therefore have the water current be indirect, such as in a manner to bounce off a nearby structure.
Diet and Feeding They are exclusively ahermatypic, meaning they lack the zooxanthellae required for photosynthesis. It does not gain any nutrition from light, therefore, its diet is totally from micro plankton and other filtered foods that the Tree Soft traps in its tentacles during 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.
Note: The Tree soft coral can expand and contract tremendously. Size will vary from smaller when you receive them, to larger once they have adjusted to your aquarium for a period of weeks.

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.

Red Chili/Cactus Coral
(Alcyonium)

White polyps on strawberry red soft coral make for a real beauty!
Description:One of the only corals available to the aquarium trade in a bright red color. Beautiful and manageable in size, Chili Coral is a great addition for the reef aquarium hobbyists from beginner to advanced level. Also Known as the Strawberry Coral, they are a real beauty and simple to keep.
Tank Recomendations: Chili corals do well in low light areas of your tank. Do not place directly under bright lights, place in lower areas of the tank or in caves, out of the direct path of light, preferably in shaded areas. Generally easy to care for, it fares best under medium to high water current, does best with alternating/pulsating/changing water movement.

  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.
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.

  Green Kenya Tree Leather Coral

Description: The common name for this beauty is either Kenya Tree or Capnella. It is a soft (leather) coral from the Pacific ocean. A quick grower given proper lighting and good water flow. Capnella will grow back from the tiniest bit of flesh left behind and holds fast to any substrate to which it attaches. Like most “Leather” corals, Capnella will routinely shed a “mucous tunic” to clear itself of algae, debris, etc.This is generally observed by the colony closing for a period of hours to days, followed by a shedding of a thin clear film that may take one to several days to complete. Colonies kept in higher flow areas will “shed” less often.
Tank Recommendations: The Green Kenya Tree is very hardy and will thrive in a properly maintained reef aquarium. It requires a moderate to strong water flow and tends to do very well under various types of reef tank lighting.
Feeding:  Although the leather coral seeks nutrition from more than one place, its main source of energy capitalizes on its nature as a symbiotic creature. The leather coral enjoys a mutually beneficial relationship with the minute algae zooxanthellae which supplies the coral with a steady stream of energy and nutrients. A secondary energy source comes from the micro plankton and other foods that the leather coral traps in its tentacles during ocean waves and currents. The addition of trace elements such as iodine and strontium should supplement the water to ensure good health.

Metallic Red Open Brain
(Trachyphyllia geoffroyi)

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

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

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

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

  Metallic Green Flat Brain
Wellsophylia Radiata

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

Care must be taken when placing the coral in the aquarium so that nothing will damage the soft tissue. When placing them in the aquarium place them on the substrate or mid-way in the aquarium where they will receive tdirect light.

  Metallic Green Torch Corals
Euphyllia glabrescens

Description:The Euphyllia Torch Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral. It has long and flowing polyps with single rounded tips which are visible throughout the day and night, hiding its branching skeletal base most of the time. It may be brown or green with color on the tips of its tentacles. Provide plenty of room between the Euphyllia Torch Coral and other corals, since at night, its sweeper tentacles can extend up to several inches from its base and sting other corals. It is a popular coral that will thrive under proper conditions and excellent water quality parameters. Ideally, it needs to have moderate lighting combined with moderate water movement within the aquarium.
Diet and location Requirements:For continued good health, it will require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. It needs medium to bright lighting and medium water flow.The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides the majority of its nutritional requirements from photosynthesis. It will also benefit from additional food in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp.

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

Pink Catspaw Pocillopora Damicornis
Pocillopora Sp.

Pocillopora is one of the easier to maintain SPS corals
Description: Pink Pocillopora Damicornis has short, delicate branches and grows mostly in a compact, round shape. Colonies have an elegant pink coloration and stay smaller in size than either the Pink & Green or the Green Damicornis. Pocillopora coral has multiple, concave spores covering its calcified frame. Because of its appearance, it is also known as Bowl, Cauliflower, Cluster, or Lacey Coral. Like other SPS corals, the shape of the P. damicornis is greatly affected by water conditions and locations. Two different species can look very similar in deeper waters, yet those same two can have a very different formation in shallow locations. Also, water temperature plays a big part on how fast they grow. They reproduce both sexually and asexually, commonly through fragmentation. Polyps are small and fuzzy and are very striking with a two-tone color. The polyps of the Pocillopora genus are immersed within the skeletal structure and can retract completely and instantly if there is any external stimulus. The P. damicornis can be brown, green, pink, purple, cream, and a combination of green and yellow, brown and pink. Other combinations have been aquacultured. Aquacultured specimens will have names related to color like Green Pocillopora Damicornis, Pink and Green Pocillopora, Pink Pocillopora Coral, and Cadmium Pocillopora Coral.

Requirements:Water quality that is consistently excellent with flow that is substantially turbulent is quite nescessary. Strong lighting with at least 5 watts per gallon is necessary. Altering the corals position in the aquarium is how reef aquarists "fine tune" their specimen for the best results. To increase chances of success, do not attempt to keep Acropora in reef tanks less than a year old. The reason is that until a reef tank matures it will not do well for growing acropora.

Diet Requirements:These corals have small polyps and poor prey capture ability. They consume foods of very small particle size. For example, oyster eggs, with a particle size of about 50µ, are a good food for these corals. In a well fed tank with a variety of food, additional feeding might not be necessary. 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.

ORA™ "Phil's Neon Granulosa"
Acropora granulosa

Actual color, not touched up 

Description: Phil’s Granluosa is a short, smooth branched coral that grows into a compact bush-like form. Its glowing green coloration can be spotted from across the room. Originally purchased in Germany in 2002, ORA began selling this coral in 2004, but lost 100% of our stock in the hurricanes of that year. ORA re-obtained this coral from friends and re-released it in January 2008.

Characterized by their branching appearance, Acropora come in a limitless supply of colors, growth patterns, and varieties. Typically Acropora do best under high lighting and high flow. A metal halide or high-powered full spectrum lighting system is a must have for successful keeping of these corals. The exception to this rule is deepwater acropora, which are characterized by their smooth appearance with small and widely dispersed polyps. Deepwater acropora can handle medium to moderate lighting levels but can be adapted to higher levels of light.

In our systems we have found that keeping deep-water corals under moderate lighting levels will produce the best growth and coloration. We do tend to keep them off to the side of the metal halides as oppose to directly underneath them. We also recommend you keep deep waters at a mid to lower level placement in your reef. Your Acropora will also benefit from phytoplankton supplementation or other similar sized foods made for SPS.
