I HAVE BEEN IN THE HOBBY SINCE 2002
I started my love for this hobby in 2002. My first tank was a 90g fish only system. During my trips to the local aquariums, I started noticing corals and began to admire the beauty and how your tanks can evolve and change. My first reef tank was a 14g Nano, of course like most people in the hobby that wasn't enough. 12g became 24,34,75,125, and then 220g.
To involve myself even more in the hobby I worked at a local pet store for 8 years. I learned the ins and outs of taking care of these beautiful, but sensitive creatures.
OPENED TO PUBLIC
In 2016 I decided to open Wojtek's Reef(now MegaCorals) to share my love and passion for this beautiful hobby. I believe there is no better way to ease a hard day's work than to sit down, stare, and enjoy your little piece of living reef.
Currently, our Reef covers 15 aquariums. Each having carefully placed hundreds of frag and coral colonies where they can thrive before going to their forever homes. We have aquariums ranging from 15g to 180g with over 1000g of water.
LIVE CORAL CARE
WE CARE ABOUT THE ANIMALS THAT WE BRING INTO OUR SHOP AND WE EXPECT THE SAME CARE TO BE GIVEN ONCE THEY ENTER YOUR HOME.
Keeping a bit of coral reef in the home aquarium is an exciting and rewarding adventure. Reef tanks were once considered very difficult to keep. Keeping live coral is still somewhat demanding, but today the knowledge and equipment are readily available to the average hobbyist. Anyone with the desire to learn specific husbandry techniques and the willingness to purchase the proper equipment can keep a gorgeous reef aquarium. Of course, the aquarist must invest his or her time in the care of these unique animals as well.
Beautiful home reefs can be either a simple reef with hardier, less demanding animals or a more complex reef with higher maintenance specimens. Stony corals are more demanding and take a more dedicated effort. So keeping stony corals is itself a step beyond a simple or beginner reef.
Having reef-keeping experience is invaluable to successfully keeping hard corals. With some of the less demanding inhabitants, you can hone your skills. You will develop an understanding of the unique habitat these animals thrive in. Some of the best inhabitants for a beginning reef are soft and leather corals, coral anemones, and anemones. Once you've gained success in keeping these, you will be ready to keep the more delicate and demanding stony corals.
