Two New ORA Corals Released!

Two New ORA Corals Released!

Our reef farming friends down in Florida are at it again. They have released two new Acropora frags this month. The first is an attractive green coral they have named the ORA Gecko Green. The second, and my favorite of the two, is called the ORA Micronesian Mauve Acro. We expect to have our first shipment of these right after Christmas and they will be added to the website immediately. You will find them in our “ORA Coral Frags” section after they arrive. For pictures and ORA’s Press Releases, read on…

Closed December 7th

Closed December 7th

We have been approached by a film production company about using our aquariums for a 3-D BluRay movie. The film crew will be taking over our Brick & Mortar location, all day, on Tuesday, December 7th. They asked that we avoid having customers browsing in the store during filming. As a result, we will be closed. If anyone needs dry goods or consumables, and is willing to wait in the hall while we get it, we can accommodate this type of request. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes our valued patrons.

ORA Phil’s Granulosa Is Back

ORA Phil’s Granulosa Is Back

Our friends at ORA have been working hard in 2010. This year, ORA brought the hobby many new captive bred offerings. There has been two species of captive bred Mandarin Dragonets, as well as Snowflake and Platinum Clowns. ORA also introduced new Gobies and Psuedochromis. They saved a special treat for the end of the year though. After being unavailable for roughly a year, Phil’s Granulosa is back! This neon green Acropora sp. has unique, smooth branches and becomes quite beautiful as it grows into a colony. It is very sensitive to Alkalinity changes so make sure you keep your parameters stable or you will be visited by the cursed “bottom-up” STN.
