Thank you for checking out our ReefNation’s sustainably raised corals! All of our ReefNation corals have been adapting to captivity over the years we have grown them. Some have been here since 1999! You can be assured that this means they have been through their fair share of alk swings etc over the years, and come out the other side stronger. This means you will have a frag that given the right conditions, will grow happily for years to come!
Pictures: Mother colony or typical frags shown in picture from our ReefNation tanks.
Size: You will receive a .5-2″ piece of this coral that has been healed for at least 2 weeks before shipping. If this is a zoa or soft coral, we will get you 1-10 heads depending on largest available.
Shipping: Shipping will be a flat 45$.
DOA Guarantee: We are not responsible for doa’s due to shipping delays, but we will work with you on a solution and do our best to make you a happy customer that comes back for years! If there is a DOA coral, please send us a picture within 2 hours of delivery for claim submission. Please see our acclimation instructions for preferred acclimation.
Let us know if you have any questions or looking for something you don’t see listed. Chances are we might have it growing in our ReefNation network of coral growers! EAT SLEEP REEF REPEAT!
We recommend trying to replicate the parameters these corals were grown in. This helps for an easy transition to your tank and helps the corals get off on the right foot.
Placement: Mount your new coral using IC gel glue, putty, or a combinations of both. Place the coral on a rock or ledge in a location that receives ample lighting and random flow.
Parameters: Alkalinty- 7-8, Magnesium 1290-1350, Salinity- 35 (read salinity vs SG) , Calcium-410-425. Nitrate- 0.5-2, Phosphates- .01-.04
Lighting: 250-450 PAR Most SPS corals require moderate to high lighting to maintain proper color. T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow SPS when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 18-20K color spectrum for best coloration.
Flow: Medium to High. Our frag system has some major motion!
Feeding: ReefNation recommends feeding acropora corals with a combination of foods like Detritus, Zooplankton, Phytoplankton, Amino Acids and other Organic Proteins . A daily broadcast feeding while return and circulations pumps are stopped will ensure the corals have the ability to consume the nutrients they require.
