SPS Corals

SPS Corals

SPS or Small Polyp Stony Corals.

This family of corals includes Acropora, Montipora, Pavona, Hydnophora, Pocillopra, Stylopora, Seriatopora, Anacropora, Porites and Psammacora.  

SPS corals are made up of small individual animals (polyps) living in a colony with shared tissues and a basic neural net.  These animals derive most of their energy and nutrition from a symbiotic relationship with photosynthetic algae (zooxanthellae) that live within their tissues.  The coral provides the zooxanthellae with the precursors for photosynthesis and these microscopic algae capture sunlight and convert it into energy that is shared with the coral.

Each polyp is made up of a stomach and a mouth surrounded by tenticles used in capturing food.  The structure of an SPS coral is created by the polyps secreting calcium carbonate which forms the skeleton matrix the polyps live in.  Over many years, the slow building of this calcium carbonate skeleton results in the formation of the ocean's giant reefs.

 



We maintain our coral collection in several different locations to provide redundant sources of our farming stock. As some of these mother colonies have been actively farmed by Your Reef for ten years or more, insuring their long term survival is clearly important to us.  As a result not all items shown as in stock on the website are currently available at our retail location.  If you are planning a trip to our retail store and want a specific piece shown on the site, please order through the website and specify "In Store Pickup" as the delivery method.  Call or email us to determine the best time to visit to pick up your order.
