The abundance and diversity of corals sold at the show impresses even non-reefer attendees
Reefapalooza is a one of a kind show. Besides being a conference featuring world-class speakers, a marketplace of ideas, and an exposition where numerous vendors showcase their latest products, at its core, RAP is one giant frag swap. Coral vendors occupy every nook, cranny, and corner of available space on the show’s floor, offering exotic corals and other reef-dwelling animals. In a seemingly endless stream of colors and shapes, new and exciting species entering the market always find their way to Reefapalooza. For that very reason, at this year’s event I set myself the goal to photograph as many coral vendors’ tanks as possible to present it to you in this multi-part segment I call “The eye candies”. Enjoy the gallery:
Dr Mac and his team brought an array of beautiful corals, some priced well below the competition. Plus they had, as always, a tank full of clams:)
Some good old frags plus a special treat for Star Wars fans 🙂
I’m an Elegance coral fanatic and these guys had the most beautiful specimen I’ve seen in a long time…
And yet another group of corals I really enjoy – zoanthids!
