Corals

Change Category

Everybody loves the fish and inverts in a reef aquarium, but the true star of the show is the coral. These colonizing organisms are what drive hobbyists to watch their aquarium’s water parameters with extreme care. They are what causes hobbyists to spend so much money on lights that can make them grow. Corals are not a plant or a rock. They are actually colonies of polyp organisms that have a symbiotic relationship with zooxanthellae algae. This algae lives inside of them and gives them food. It is also what gives them those vibrant colors we all love so much. There are so many different species, subspecies within those species, and color varieties within those subspecies. They come in full stony skeletons, partially stony, or fully soft. There is plenty of variety to go around. Buying corals online has been more popular than ever and now you can purchase corals from AlgaeBarn.
