Quarantine & Conditioning Process
Upon arrival, corals are cut from excessive rock to reduce chances of bringing any unwanted pests. On top of this, they are also dipped to remove any pests before being placed in a holding tank for 2-3 weeks.
While they are in a holding tank, the corals are consistently monitored for any pests or diseases that may have got passed the initial dip. The corals are also dipped in antibacterial dips to help with any bacterial diseases and increase healing regeneration.
Corals are then dipped and moved to another holding tank (to separate them from fresh imports) for observation. If they go for 2 weeks without any signs of pests, the corals are moved to the fallowing tank.
Now that the corals are coral pest-free, they then move on to becoming fish pest-free. The fallowing tank serves to die out any fish parasite that might remain on the frags/corals. Corals sit in a fishless system for 70 days to ensure no fish parasites move onto the final stage.
The final stage before a coral becomes available. Corals are moved to another system dedicated to grow them out for aquaculture. All of fish in the system have been quarantined and verified completely clean of any parasites to ensure the coral is also completely parasite/pest free. They will sit in this system until they go to you!
