About Top Shelf Aquatics
After touring Top Shelf Aquatics, we were very impressed with how the folks there run their operation. We've seen quite a few coral facilties, and can confidently say that Top Shelf has one of the most advanced and professional sps setups we've seen. You can tell that they care by the vibrant health and quality of their frags all the way up to the point of delivery. You can count on healthy, pest-free frags and professional shipping, and that's why we've selected TSA as one of our trusted coral partners.
Coral Care Guidelines
This pack contains a sampling of small polyp stony (SPS) 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.
