    Coralpalooza 2018 June 8th/9th Key Largo

    CORALPALOOZA is a festival of reef restoration that shows the world what’s possible when we work together!

    On World Oceans Day every year, Coral Restoration Foundation takes out an “army” of ocean lovers to help restore coral reefs in Florida and beyond.

    This year is the International Year of the Reef, and CORALPALOOZA is part of the international “March for the Ocean” (M4O) campaign.

    Divers and non-divers alike can join Coral Restoration Foundation volunteers, interns, staff, and brand-new coral warriors for a jam-packed day of saving coral reefs. This year we are:


    • Taking out record numbers of divers to actively restore reefs. In 2018, we will be mobilizing over 200 people in the Florida Keys alone!
    • Sending a fleet of kayaks out to clean the mangroves
    • Hosting a day of arts and crafts, food, games, and community engagement around the issues facing our oceans.
    • Coordinating our efforts with groups throughout the Caribbean!

    I would be interested in going and if room permits family will go as well. Last year was alot of fun. I highly recommend it.
    Four individual systems Right now.
    30gal red sea 130d lps/softies/anemone tank, kalk ato, reef bright led strip.
    40 softies set up.
    550 total gallon marineland 300 DD main system 18 months old now and stabilized. T5 VHO lights/ BLUE led strip, Fully custom built LIFE REEF sump and FUGE, AWESOME 60" tall skimmer, and 1000+ gallon rated custom Ca reactor, 3 50 gallon attached SPS frag systems lite with a combination of HM and LED and T5 fixtures.
    A 200 gallon MARS quarintine with UV system/ medication for new arrivals.

    Still lots to learn about the hobby but I have amassed a great collection of real beauties. I have broken past the stage of keeping things alive and now there actually growing out. Which is a big hurdle for many beginners I must admit. Good information and advise is hard to get sometimes and the club has done wonders with respect to quality advise and help in the hobby.

    THANKS Orlando Reef Educators Organization!!!!
