You are a beginner in the reef hobby and don´t know exactly which coral is the right one for your tank? No problem! In the shop you will find the possibility to filter by care level. The exact care requirements of each coral are listed in the detailed product view. Especially for beginner or young saltwater aquariums, we recommend more robust species from the categories soft corals, mushrooms or zoanthus.
Usually, these corals also tolerate higher nutrient values and forgive minor mistakes that may happen when starting the hobby. But also among the LPS or SPS corals there are genera, which are quite suitable for beginners as e.g. Seriatopora, Caulastrea, Stylophora, Euphyllia or Pocillopora.
We offer coral in the shop with sample or original pictures. The latter variant is based on What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG). Each coral frag is individually photographed and the pictures are then uploaded to the shop. Whether the picture represents a sample shot or WYSIWYG image is noted for each animal in the product description.
Although you only see the corals on the display before you buy them, the WYSIWYG principle gives you a very good idea of what they will look like in your reef tank. Once you have decided on a certain coral, after your purchase at Coralaxy, you will receive exactly the animal you have selected for your home delivery.
Especially for newcomers to the reef aquarium hobby, captive-bred fish are the best option, as they are generally more resistant than their wild caught conspecifics. Nonetheless, all care instructions should be followed.
Especially when first stocking saltwater fish, it should be noted that the aquarium is completely cycled and all water values are stable. For the beginning we recommend robust saltwater fish such as dottybacks or clownfish.
All coral and fish offered by Coralaxy origin 100% from aqua- or mariculture. The corals and fish are cultured by Coralaxy itself or obtained from friendly partner companies. On the one hand, these companies are tropical coral farms that reproduce coral and fish directly in the sea (= mariculture) or in facilities using natural seawater (= open aquaculture).
On the other hand, corals and fish offered here come from land-based aquaculture farms from Europe, Asia, Australia and the USA, which reproduce and breed corals and marine fish under artificial conditions (lighting, salt water, etc.) - as they also prevail in your aquarium (= closed aquaculture). In the detailed view you will find out exactly where the fish or coral comes from and can trace its origin.
With the purchase of aquacultured corals and fish you make an important contribution to sustainable reef aquaristics. Much of the world's traded marine fish and coral are still wildcaught.
In some places, cyanide is still used illegally to catch fish from the reef - with devastating effects on the environment. In addition, long transport routes cause high losses. In contrast to wild catches, captive-bred marine fish have grown up under controlled conditions and the transport routes are traceable and significantly shorter.
