Coral Frenzy has released two brand new products over the last few months allowing the aquarist to target even species of corals in the reef aquarium.  The original Coral Frenzy is a powder-like food with tiny particles great for targeting filter feeders and planktivorous fish and it has been well received in the marketplace for many years.  Then came the new 1mm Reef Pellets that was quickly followed up by a smaller 0.5mm version designed for invertebrates with smaller mouths.  You can find pricing at Aquarium Specialty here.

We’ve used and distributed the original Coral Frenzy for the last few years with much success and more recently we have been using the 1mm pellet food along with the original.  The 1mm pellets are great for target feeding almost every LPS coral in our tanks and we have been using it 1-2 times per week with good results.  The .5mm version is so new that we haven't laid our eyes on it yet but here's what Brandon at Aqua Nerd had to say about it along with the other Coral Frenzy products.

The powder version of the Coral Frenzy is the most different from the bunch. It is very fine, with a rich smell that is present in most dry foods (only true fish nerds can appreciate the smell of fish food). The two pellets, on the other hand, are quite similar, differing obviously in the size of each pellet. We didn’t break out the ruler to verify the 0.5mm and 1mm lengths, but the larger pellet is significantly larger…though 1...

Ecotech Frag Plugs

Ecotech Marine, the makers of Radion LED fixtures, MP Series Wavemaker Pumps, and Coral Glue (just to name a few of their products) is now offering a slick new frag plug that easily nestles into the cross hairs of your egg crate frag racks.  

EcoTech Marine Frag Plugs will be available to purchase separately in 50-count bags. Each bag retails for $29 and is available for pre-order now.  Orders will begin shipping the week of January 27th.  Ecotech frag plugs are available in 3 colors: natural, purple and black.  You also have the option of ordering them in a mixed bag variety.  Leave it to the Ecotech engineers to design a frag that maximizes egg crate real estate as evident in the photo below.  The scored surface of the plug is also a great feature when compared to some of the other smooth-surfaced plugs on the market.  Glue more easily binds to the scored surface of the plug thus minimizing the likelihood of your prized frag detaching from the plug's surface and ending up elsewhere in your aquarium.

Yesterday I had the pleasure if speaking with Dr. Craig Downs, Executive Director of the Global Coral Repository in Clifford, VA.  Craig and I discussed numerous topics from coral husbantry to climate change, ocean acidification and much more.  We are very interested in the various endevors and research that Craig and the Global Coral Reef Repository are involved with and we hope you may consider visiting their website.  They are a non-profit organization so keep that in mind if you are interested in making a contribution to their efforts.

Below is an article that Dr. Downs sent to us.  At a later date we will post more articles on the Aquarium Specialty Blog.

In Norway there is a massive vault that contains millions of seeds. The goal is to gather duplicate samples from seed banks of contributing nations. This is the world’s seed safety net.

It’s in the northernmost town in the world, Svalbard, Norway, where there are more reindeer than people. The vault is a chilly -18 C (that’s about 0 degrees F). Stocking caps are required.

Their website says that loss of biological diversity is one of the greatest challenges we face. Increasing pressure on food crops from wars, weather and people are taking a toll on the production of food.

The intent is to build the capacity to refurbish lost seed stocks when needed. Their website is very interesting: Google Svalbard Global Seed Vault to take look at the facility. Make sure your garbanzo beans are safely tucked away here: http://www.croptrus...
