Volume 12, Number 5

CORAL’s exciting next issue (September/October 2015—to be introduced at MACNA 2015 in Washington, DC, September 3-5)—will provide a guide to Bulletproof SPS corals—the species that experienced reefkeepers rank highest by these measures:
• Hardy (ability to thrive in most aquarium settings)
• Beginner Friendly (ideal species for reef aquarium neophytes—or hobbyists who have been struggling with keeping SPS colonies)
• Undemanding (species that do not require the latest technology for lighting, current production, and maintaining pristine water quality).
Than Thein, highly regarded coral culturist from Ohio will share his secrets and mix in some rare and unusual corals that even experts may find surprising.
