About ReefreshH2O Coral Frag Plugs
“For successful coral propagation, it is important that the plug media be inert, allowing for rapid adaptation to water chemistry levels found within a coral’s natural reef habitat,” said Robert Altieri, ReefresH2O Product Manager. “The proven ReefresH2O epoxy-free and concrete-free formulation provides a porous substrate that quickly becomes inoculated with its surrounding saltwater chemistry, making it ideal for use in coral growth, whether in the hobbyist tank or in commercial propagation installations.”
ReefresH2O Coral Frag Plugs are composed of a refractory grade ceramic material that does not contain any of the residual organic compounds or soluble phosphates typically associated with clay-fired ceramic materials, which are known to promote the growth of nuisance algae. The plugs are fired at temperatures greater than 1000 degrees Celsius, thus assuring sterility and eliminating the need for seasoning prior to use. The highly porous ceramic material has the ability to rapidly absorb up to 30 percent of its weight in salt water, thus enabling automatic delivery of micro-nutrients to the coral.
