Christmas in July at Kona! Corals & Fish Overload!
                                                                                                   
New Livestock Highlights
Boy have we had a busy week so far! Mike pulled some strings and got a full box of sweet Scolymia Australis! Also received some very bright Gonioporas (including pink varieties!), several green deepwater Leathers, Grade A Acan Micromussas, Ultra Green Torches, and more LPS varieties! As you may know, it has been getting harder to find quality corals as export channels are limited so we have been working hard to source great corals keeping our tanks full of selection!

Now Carrying Caribsea Shape Rock!
Treated with beneficial bacteria, this calcium carbonate rock provides arches, caves, shelves, and more interesting shapes for a truly unique aqua-scape. Get rid of rubble pile rock work with easy to use structural pieces from this line of rock. Get a few really cool arches or caves and combine with your pre-existing rockwork or use it for brand new aqua-scaping. As Fiji's halt of exportation of live rockcontinues, this is a great alternative that is safe for the aquarium, made from calcium carbonate (so works just as well as natural live rock for buffering etc), pest free, and most importantly treated and placed in our wet liverock system with live bacteria to help boost your cycle time! Every rock is slightly different so the aqua-scape options are endless!
New Salt Mix!
Now carrying, selling, and mixing Oceanic Salt! We've had saltwater aquariums for years and while we have sold and used Red Sea Coral Pro (RSCP) at the store for the past four years, we have experimented with nearly every salt brand with our tanks at home. We've personally used the following: Instant Ocean, Brightwell, RSCP, Tropic Marin (both Reef and Regular), Oceanic, and Crystal Sea for at least 6+ months at a time. While they each have pros and cons, after careful contemplation, we've decided to switch our store pre-mix saltwater to Oceanic Salt Mix from RSCP. We will continue to sell RSCP and Regular Salt if you want to mix it at home, but the pre-mixed water will be Oceanic going forward.  Here's a few reasons why have decided to make the switch: 
*Great Water Clarity - Oceanic consistently mixes very clean with no flakes, precipitate, or discoloration.
*Consistently Clean - Every batch is triple tested in an independent lab to ensure zero ammonia, phosphate, or nitrate
*Affordable - Large bucket mixes 200 gallons of saltwater retailing for only $61.99 making it one of the most affordable reef salts on the market

As always, we stand behind our products and will be using Oceanic on our in store aquariums for our own water changes as well.

Aqua-Culture Spotlight


Stunner Chalice

This fast growing chalice has been in captivity for years (10+!) and is one of the most adapted corals we have seen. It grows quickly and is highly tolerant and adaptable to different tank conditions especially compared to any other chalice. Pictured is the plating version, but there is also an encrusting that we also carry which boasts a stronger/deeper base green coloration. This fast growing prefers lower light, testable levels of phosphate/nitrate, and semi-frequent feeders but as mentioned it is highly adaptable and will thrive in most reef aquariums.
