Featured Coral of the Week – GB Avatar Chalice

This weeks featured coral of the week comes to us from our sponsor Joe Knows Reefs. The GB Avatar Chalice looks incredibly similar to a coral I once had that I picked up from Fishy Business in Columbia, SC called the FB Blue Ghost. The blue ghost chalice is a relatively easy chalice to care for and it prefers lower light and low to moderate indirect flow so I think it’s safe to assume Joey’s specimen would prefer the same conditions. At the time of this article writing, Joe Knows Reefs only has 1 of these WYSIWYG corals in stock and at $159.99 the price is right for this fast growing chalice.

World Wide Corals Visit

Some stunning chalice corals This past weekend we were at Reef-A-Palooza Orlando and decided to drop in to see Lou, Vic and the team at World Wide Corals.  While I was looking at all of the beautiful displays and the World Wide Coral Farm I bumped into Frank Lim from Real Reef Rock.  These are a few shots that Frank and I took with our phones using a yellow filter to counteract the 20K lighting.  It’s pretty amazing how far along our camera phones have come.  If you’re ever in the Orlando area, I highly recommend stopping by their shop.  Plan to stay a while! <![CDATA[ #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align:

Raja Rampage Chalice

This weeks’ Featured Coral of the Week comes to us from Jason Fox Signature Corals.  Recently I reached out to Jason to see if he had anything new coming out in the way of higher end chalice corals.  Above is a particularly stunning mycedium coral that Jason collected from Indonesia while he was on a dive trip three years ago.   Jason named this the Raja Rampage Chalice.  Jason tells us that it has a solid growth rate and that like many mycedium corals, this coral prefers low to medium lighting and moderate to low flow in the aquarium.   Jason found the Raja Rampage while diving along a remote island where it was located on a ledge at a depth of 60 feet.  The colors are simply amazing
