Zoanthids Zoa

For many fans to coral success will come a time that corals have adapted well and have good growth. This eventually leads to overpopulation and coral cuts, and it becomes necessary. This is a great opportunity to recover the costs of a coral reef aquarium and promote aquaculture in the aquarium hobby reef. This mania often impacts our precious ocean resources and efforts to minimize negative impacts and are not always beneficial.

A tank has a few qualities that differ fragmentation of a typical reef aquarium. First, frag tank system should be very minimal rock work the main tank. Live Rock is still necessary for filtering, but should be stored in the sump or refugium. The idea is to maximize the area of coral fragments. This also allows the efficient flow and large objects often obstruct the flow.

A fragmented system should be shallow as possible to maximize efficiency lights and pumps. A good height for a series tank fragments ranges from 8 to 12 inches. Frag tank devoted strictly to the SPS corals can even get away with six inches. If the tank will house a mixture of fragments of coral fragments with different lighting conditions, then it is better to go with 12 inches.

It is important having high, medium and low light areas in a frag tank. This is important because it is very easy to dominate a shallow tank. A coral fragments that are cut from a zone of low light in an aquarium that is suddenly exposed to 250 watts in a few inches of water can spell disaster. A sudden increase in intensity quickly coral bleach.

High flow is very important in a frag tank freshly cut frags because high flow required to prevent infection. Besides, the tanks of fragmentation tend to be fed heavily to increase growth rates. For this reason, good flow will help minimize the detritus of sedimentation. As an aquarium exhibit, it is important that the water flow is random and multidirectional. Finally, a space should be created in the system of fragments with an area of zero flow. Many rel = "nofollow" href = "http://www.lareefs.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=26"> live corals, such as Xenia and Mushrooms require time to attach to objects after cutting. These corals will have an area with almost no flow to join them. A great place for this is a refugium or sump.

A tank of fragmentation not always require complex and expensive equipment. Nano frag tanks are very popular and can be set quite easily. With enough time and effort that is possible to recover fragments investment of the tank. Growing up without coral fragments is a rewarding experience and a great way to save our reefs.
