Our latest coral frame deployed!

On the 15th of October 2014, we deployed our 4th coral frame. We started out with a steel frame and after weeks of prepping we finally have a frame that is suitable for coral growth. We have many more frames to put down around our house reef in an attempt to restore our coral reef to its original state. stay tune for more.
