We use many types of grunge in each reef.
Garf Grunge Plus™ is used to create a cryptic zone in the existing aquarium. This is done by piling the Garf Grunge Plus™ in a back corner. Garf Grunge Plus™ is the finest thing to add to seed the refugeum. This product has been extremely popular and it does a great job of creating a small hiding place called the cryptic zone in the main tank and in the sump.

I am absolutely excited to introduce one of our newest, hardest working and delightful to watch janitors. Our Mollies have been in our saltwater systems for over 2 years now, and there is not one spot of algae in any one of our tanks. Matching the Mollies and our existing janitor package works faster, longer and better than we could have dreamed . I have now grown enough of these amazing salt water mollies to make them part of our newest janitor package, meaning that the mollies will be only 1.00 each. We recommend 1 Molly per every 5 gallons of tank water.
Wow,its been quite a while since I have had the time to share my beautiful Xenia with everyone. We have worked extremely hard on sharing in detail everything we know on the care and propagation of these remarkable Xenia. These corals have continued to capture my heart.
please take the time to watch these videos for they will answer all of your questions, and they will probably answer ones that you had not thought of yet. I am very excited to announce that because of my passion for these animals I have brood stock Xenia that have been with me for over 16 years.
I have several babies ready to become your brood stock and provide you with countless years of propagation of many new generations of Xenia that you can share with the general public.

|Hello, This is LeRoy
I've been recovering from a stroke. I have several things to report, and most of them are positive.
If during the last year you've called me and talked to me, and it seems like every time you call I don't remember that we've talked before, well that's probably because it was true.
With my therapy and my new medications I'm doing much better. The doctor says I am going to continue to get better, but until I am all better Sally Jo is setting up a computer program to help me with my short-term memory problems.
This problem with my helping you seems to have been when we had a problem with an order. I was trying to help, but I should have left the order in the system. I will now do that. If you have had a problem; I hope you will call me again. I promise to get the information to Sally Jo. 1-208-344-6163
We are so excited to share with you some new ways to make Aragocrete sculptures. LeRoy is recovering from the stroke and his short term memory is getting better. LeRoy will show you our newest Aragocrete instruction pages. He will be creating many new rock making lessons, so be sure to check in with garf.org often.

This Summer I am going to help many of you to start a home rock company. It may seem odd to start making your own rocks now that 5 of the big coral wholesalers are producing their own man made rocks for sale. That just means that they know there is now a demand for rock that will help save the wild reefs.
It is nice to have their company, because for most of the last 15 years it has seemed that Sally Jo and I have been standing on own front porch yelling into the dark.

I would like to start by saying thank you for all your help with my order of janitors and the GARF 75 gallon diversity package. As soon as the janitors hit the tank floor they were off and running they have removed all the algae from my tank, I am having to swap live rock from my other tank just so they have algae to feed on. They are definitely worth the price and the Grunge is awesome.
I currently am doing aquarium maintenance at the local community college which consists of a 120 gallon reef tank and I also propagate and clean tanks at the local pet store in town here. I have started to make man made rock from G.A.R.F's instructions which seems to work very well especially since I really want to keep the live rock where it belongs on the reef in the ocean.
I feel that we all can make a impact for the better on our oceans no matter how small or big it all really does matter, it is a proven fact through the research being done at G.A.R.F that there are plenty of ways to have quality man made live rock that is as good if not better than robbing our reefs and not to mention without any risk of nuisance algae or pests.
Thanks for all you and Sally Joe do for the hobby if you ever come to Lexington North Carolina please look me up it would be an honor to meet you.
Today we show you how to make Aragocrete Rocks to mount your corals on

You don't know me at all but I know you. I started following your website at its very early begginings. I was going through my attic the other day and found stuff I printed up in the mid to late 90's in college. I have a whole three leaf binder made up about coral farming from your site. You got me turned on to reefkeeping and coral farming. I was going to University of Rhode Island and studying aquaculture.
I remember consulting frantically looking things up on your website in the wee hours of the morning trying to write papers on the economical and enviromental advantages of raising ornamental fish and invertabrates. And this was before the internets were really cool. A step above a green monitor and a dot matrix printer. When 56k dialup was lighting speed (remember when you clicked on something and had to go make a pot of coffee run to the store cuz you ran out of cream and maybe just maybe when you got back the page would be loaded because it had like 5 pictures).
Anyways I digress. I had four tanks ranging from 55 gals down to 2.5 gals in a 10x10 room. I was raising softies in the 10 gal at the time and perculas in the 55. Lots of great stories about those times but I could go on for hours (including a heater malfunction that cooked the 10gal over a weekend break making the dorm smell like lowtide when I waltzed in on monday).
Anyways I digress, and life got in the way, I no longer have all the tanks or corals(wish I still did), and I find myself doing something for a living that is about 180degrees from my aquaculture roots but that pays the bills a bit better. The other day after going through some boxes I found my old garf binder it brought back memories so I went over to the more greatly improved Internets and hit the google and poof there you guys are as always with a great site and great info.
Sorry for the rambling email. I am setting up a 24 gal aquapod soon and going to be visiting this site much more often for info, advice and supplies. I am so glad you guys are still around. Thanks for taking time to read this.

I have a cousin named David Ewen who used your methods religiously several years ago and swears by them. I've been out the hobby for about 14 years, but just got back into it starting with a BioCube 29 HQI. I set it up at the end of October.
I hadn't thought about GARF in all those years. In January, I told my cousin (who also got completely out of it) that I had a tank and was setting it up and he reminded me of you guys. I was doing barebottom and decided to re-do it with a plenum. So it's all set up now and I've been ready for the Grunge for about 2 weeks. SOOOO excited!
I have a dream of building a coral propogation facility here in Vegas. I have the designs and plans in my head and am going to start writing them down. After that, it will just be a matter of funding it, which will probably take years but it's all about having goals, right? :)
Thanks again LeRoy!
