After nailing the first QT tanks, we decided to stage our MOTHER COLONY tank! This massive system is a 550G mother tank, 350G frag tank, and an INSANE 400G sump. o_O

Would you guys like some updates on this mother colony tank?

More lights, more stands, more sumps, and more tanks featuring a whole lot of mess as we continue to stage massive systems!

Make sure to watch/follow this post to keep updated as we build a top tier aquaculture facility!

Stringing and staging lights is no simple task! These are going right above our SPS grow-out and mother colony tanks.

Strung and ready to grow - our LPS tanks and in-take are maturing up and already pumping out crazy beautiful coral.

We only have half of the farm setup. Who is ready for the other half?!

We are steadily working on bringing you guys some crazy coral very soon!

In the meantime, have a little timelapse of a quick photo-snapping session in the farm.

There will be an update regarding a new infrastructure addition to the farm very soon!!




Can anyone guess how many frags we have in these tanks??

The farm has been particularly busy these days!

We have been meticulously checking these coral and tanks day-in and day-out as we approach our Coral Mayhem Live Sale on 05/08-05/09. We hold ourselves to the highest standards and make sure these coral are in TIP TOP shape as they arrive to you! :)

Check out the sale HERE!

SUMPS HAVE ARRIVED.

Thank you to Luna Reef Customs for these MONSTER sumps!!

Monster-sized clownfish for reference ;)

As we grow we continue to expand our aquaculture facility to ensure this hobby remains as sustainable as possible. We want to continue to bring top-tier corals to new and older reefers alike!

In addition to these new sumps, we also have 3 new show tanks so we can travel the country and bring our HOT corals TO YOU. ;Happy
