STUNNING ALL THE WAY AROUND. fI built a reef tank in my loft at home.The preparations started in the summer of 2019 and the seawater was added on January 18, 2020. I'm going to show you the record to date. There is already an aquatic plant tank on the right side.I decided to make a tank full of coral on the left side of this one.
And it was recently filled with coral.
This is my tank build thread.
Yes, it is. It is quite difficult to maintain a wild colony for a long time. Unfortunately, flag culture is still not widespread in Japan. Most of the corals that are sold are either wild colonies or cultured colonies. Both of them are grown in the ocean, and I find it more difficult to keep them compared to frags grown in an aquarium. Recently, we have learned how to increase the survival rate of the colonies by breaking them down into pieces. I will continue to study so that I can farm them as vigorously as possible.Your colonies are wild right? I’ve found that wild caught and maricultured Acropora colonies can be very difficult to keep long term. One day they’re happy, and the next they’re losing color and tissue. That being said, you guys are a lot closer to the harvesting sites than I am in the US, which probably affects mortality rates too. I wonder if you would have better success aquacultured frags. Downside is they take a while to grow into sizeable colonies.
Thanks!Very nice following along for the ride!
I have collected coral skeletons for home decoration at auctions and other places.
where did you get the dead coral skeletons form?
Thank you so much !Amazing colors! Following along.
