Established Reef Tank

Corals . . .Some of the most beautiful living tank inhabitants in an Aquarium.  Watching colorful corals sway back and forth in the current is mesmerizing to say the least. When setting up a Reef Aquarium patience is key.  It is better to start with easy or beginner corals, which tend to be hardier while your Reef is establishing itself.  Once your water parameters are 100%  in check, and your lighting is sufficient - you can begin adding more advanced corals to your tank.

Product Spotlight:

Frogspawn:
Frogspawn is classified as a LPS (large polyp stony coral) Coral.  It is known to have an aggressive temperament, due to its sweeper tentacles which can extend out to 6 inches.  This behavior usually occurs in the evening hours, and it can sting neighboring corals in your tank.  Therefore placement is key with Frogspawn, in regards to space and the other types of coral around it.  Frogspawn likes Moderate Lighting, as well as an area with Moderate Water Flow.  It's main food source comes from Photosynthesis, but will also gladly feed on Microplankton, Brine shrimp and more.  Regular addition of Calcium, Strontium, and Trace elements (as with most Corals) is suggested.
