TWO ACANTHASTREA CORALS donated by Cherry Corals!!

Everyone will be envious of you if you are lucky enough to win either of these wildly colored acans.

Coral information: Acanthastrea generally have large corallites (8-15mm) with small teeth or lobes on their septa, as well as well-developed columellae. In the wild, they're found mostly in shallow water to about 20m, often in protected areas like lagoons, forming colonies up to several meters across.

In the reef aquarium, Acanthastrea are incredibly hardy and fast growing, tolerating a wide variety of conditions, including both low and moderate lighting and moderate water currents. They make ideal candidates for fragging at home, since they have such distinct corallites (less risk of collateral damage!), amazing adaptability to lighting conditions, and rapid growth rates.

Be aware that Acanthastrea are voracious nocturnal predators and competitively extrude mesenterial filaments and digest organisms within reach. Great care must be taken in determining the placement and distance between colonies. Target feed minced meaty foods and zooplankton for best growth and frag recovery time. The use of a quality protein skimmer helps maintain water quality and combat the effects of heavy feeding. (information from LiveAquaria.com)

BRIGHT GREEN SINULARIA CORAL donated by Tom@HaslettMI.

This generous donation from Tom is a very bright green sinularia that Tom has been growing for a while. The coral will be a branch from the coral shown in the picture below.....does not include the clown that is hosting in it!

Coral Information:
Sinularia corals are similar in shape to colt corals (Cladiella) and tree corals (Nepthea). Sinularia corals can be identified by the fact that the growth originates from a single heavy stalk unlike Nepthea and the polyps are less feathery than in colt corals. Green Sinularia is a very attractive bright greenish yellow in color. The intensity of the coloration is affected by the amount of lighting the coral receives. The branches are covered with small polyps.

Hardiness: Sinularia is very hardy and tolerates a range of conditions. On occasion, a specimen will start dissolve in one or more spots as shown in the picture above. The cause is unknown. The best approach if this occurs is to cut out the bad portion of the coral.
Lighting: While Sinularia will tolerant lower lighting levels, it does best under intense lighting. The specimen shown here is growing under 10K 400W MH lamps. It has also been grown very successfully under standard 175W mercury vapor lighting.
Water Current: Sinularia likes moderate water flow. Seem to do well under wave maker water conditions where the branches get swayed gently back and forth.
Temperature: Does well within a range of at least 75 to 84 F.
Aggressiveness: Moderate. Although they do not seem to directly sting neighbors, their proximity to some other coral can cause the other corals to recede. The specimen here is in direct contact with a hammer coral and neither coral seems to harm the other. Sheer size as the specimen grows can also tend to shadow its neighbors.
Feeding: Sinularia are photosynthetic and does not require direct feeding. Unknown if they would take any form of phytop

Premium Aquatics Refractometer
http://premiumaquatics.com/prodimages/images/REFRACT-PA-K.jpg

The Premium Aquatics dual scale portable Salinity Refractometer in a Gray hard case. The RHS series of portable refractometers is designed to measure the salinity of sea water and saline solutions of similar concentration. One scale checks the Salinity levels with the range of 0-100 ppt (with 1 ppt scale divisions) and the other scale gauges Specific Gravity with a range of 1.000 to 1.070 (+/- 0.001 accuracy). Both enable the direct determination of salinity in water that contains dissolved salt and little or no other dissolved solids.
Hydrometers are nice, but they can be inaccurate, especially over time. The RHS-10ATC is designed to be very accurate to protect your investments!

The unit comes with the ATC suffix which is equipped with Automatic Temperature Compensation for accurate measurements without recalibration after shifts in ambient working temperature (field use). The ambient temp range for ATC is 50-86F (10-30C). If the temp is outside the range (warmer for example), the readings will become gradually inaccurate the further the temp is away from the 50-86'F range.
