    Garf Opinions

    Heya,

    I was curious what different peoples opinions were of GARF. Anyone ever actually purchased anything from there or know someone who has? Do you find their "bullet proof" process good?

    Just curious what other people think!

    Never got anything from them as of yet tho I was considdering
    trying some of their corals in the near future.Did use their bullet proof guidline as an outline for starting my existing tanks
    I have going now ,thought they laid out the ground rules pretty good for starting up.

    Can you get their stuff shipped to Canada? I was thinking about some of their Grunge...

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    I asked them about whether they ship to Canada and got a rather terse 'NO'. Would be interested if someone find out otherwise. Wouldn't shipping corals still fall under the CITES restrictions?

    I got the same response nick, They said they could only ship glue. I have family in the U.S. so maybe I'll be able to get some sometime. Jeeves, Garf stands for Geothermal Aquaculture Research Foundation. They're a site based out of Idaho that focuses on reefkeeping with zero impact to the natural reefs. You can check out their site at www.garf.org.

    Any livestock across the border is a no-no without proper cite/licensing and getting caught has some very serious ramifications. There have already been several threads here on AC about that. What we need is a good size 'aqua-farm' here in Canada to breed/proagate our aquarium needs. Anybody have a business plan on the shelf

    I have plans to start a coral farm using some of Garf's guidelines. I agree with SloHand, especially in our area we need a good coral farming company. SloHand, maybe there's a future shared venture here in kingston??
