About Unique Corals
Unique Corals operates a state-of-the art facility with over 14,000 gallons dedicated to saltwater livestock in Van Nuys, CA. Unique has been one of the top sources for high-quality marine livestock for years, and we've received healthy corals from them on more than one occasion, so we were extremely excited about the opportunity to partner with them to offer their corals.
Unique Corals is a family run business that follows the philosophy of offering conscientiously handled, sustainably-sourced, and responsibly cared-for marine life to the aquarium hobby, backed up by customer service that goes well beyond the sale. The founder, Joseph Caparatta, has over 30 years experience in the industry and has excelled at importing and propagating select coral from around the globe. Along with Joe’s continued passion for marine life, the team at UC is always hard at work to farm and provide healthy, sustainably-sourced corals for reef hobbyists. The core values of "conscientious, sustainable, responsible" are more than just words, and it shows in everything from the health and quality of the frags to their industry-leading shipping practices. Like our other vendors, they too offer a robust livestock guarantee and alway stand behind the quality and health of their coral.
Coral Care Guidelines
This pack contains a sampling of small polyp stony (SPS) and large polyp stony (LPS) corals. Flow and lighting needs will vary between individual specimens, but generally we find the following guidlines to be a helpful starting point for placement. Any adjustments after initial acclimation should be made over weeks or months, not days.
Soft Corals - Generally prefer low to moderate light and flow. Some specimens may tolerate more light or flow, but adjustments should be made slowly over time with careful observation. A good starting PAR measurement, if you have a meter, would be around 100-150 PAR. Remember, it's much safer to start off with lower PAR and work your way up than risk bleaching a coral from too much light intensity.
LPS - Similar to soft corals, LPS will typically inhabit lower to moderate flow and light regions. They tend to get nice and fluffy in moderate currents and may not expand if exposed to too much flow, though some varieties can handle a bit more. Lighting needs can vary quite a bit here, but it's pretty safe to start at 100-150 PAR and adjust as needed to get expected color.
SPS - As a general rule, sps will typically appreciate higher flow and light. Avoid putting corals in strong direct current, but corals should be placed where they will receive strong, turbulent flow from all directions. PAR should typically be in the range of 200-350, possibly higher for some specimens. Again, start on the lower end of the range, and adjust after observing coral reactions and coloration.
