Whoulda thunk that it would take almost a decade of making frag plugs and frag discs for someone to make hexagonal “discs” that can fit together without wasting space? If you don’t already know, Reefkoi is respected high-end coral grower (even though he is kinda metro) who has been making stops at nearly all of the major coral growing markets including IMAC West, MAX, Reefapalooza, Coral Farmer’s Market and many other local and regional events. As part of their increase in coral growing capacity, Reefkoi has worked out an exclusive deal with Boston Aqua Farms to have these hexagonal frag discs to be made complete with “Reefkoi” stamped on the bottom. We wereÂ at Reefkoi HQ in Colorado Springs this weekend and if they can pump out as many corals as they do from their few frag tanks, with the three frag pools they have in development they’ll be able to supply frags to you, your LFS and a couple of wholesalers with a few frags left over to top off the calcium reactor. These revolutionary new honeycomb discs will be on display at MACNA at the end of the month as well as some of the finest LE corals as you are likely to see at the big show. We’ll be revisiting Reefkoi in a couple of months for the grand opening of their expanded aquaculture facility.
