Laura Birenbaum (‪ReefGen)

Seahorses, cuttlefish, and corals: How does Laura Birenbaum culture these tropical critters for wholesale?

 

We may have some ideas of how Laura is culturing the acro’s and other corals from the Long Island Aquarium, but seahorses and cuttlefish? Laura will discuss her fragging and growing techniques, but how does she breed and raise these other critters?  Tips with these tricky critters will definitely help serious reefers with their own delicate animals.

 

 

Jason Fox (‪Jason Fox Signature Corals):

Reef Currents 2017 is the first time Jason Fox is speaking anywhere!

 

 

Jason Fox is known for selling insanely vibrant, rare corals, and popularizing new coral species into the hobby.  These corals include cyphastreas that branch, rainbow-colored montiporas with unusual textures, the now ubiquitous Jack-O-Lantern leptoseris, and of course many multi-colored acroporas.  Fortunately for reefers, these discoveries grow well in captivity.

 

Though for Jason, this prosperity means that they rapidly spread through the hobby and push his customers demand for even more new varieties of corals.

 

Jason must continually head back to the wild, cultivate new relationships with licensed collectors, and search for new corals appropriate for the hobby.

 

See Jason’s journeys traveling with local licensed collectors through coral reefs searching for new corals and learn some of his captive rearing “secrets".

How does Joe Yaiullo manage ‪a 17 year old, 20,000 gallon SPS tank (Long Island Aquarium)?

 

The construction of this 30’ long aquarium started in 1999 with planning and design much earlier when SPS cultivation was not fully known. Yet after 17 years, a spectacular reef aquarium still thrives featuring a reef wall, crest, terrace, and back reef filled with many varieties of soft and stony corals, anemones, and about 800 fish, including various tangs, wrasses, gobies, and angelfish.

 

How does Joe avoid the dreaded Old Tank Syndrome, so much he doesn’t believe in it!  See his recommendations and those of many other famous reefers.

 

His insights will definitely help any reefer with their tank set-up and maintenance.
