CommunityCorals is a marketplace for aquacultured corals. CommunityCorals is a platform where coral farmers are joined by reef hobbiests that are aware of the condition of the natural reef. Together they enjoy their passion and propagate corals to ensure the survival of coral species for the next generation. This is what we call “Next Generation Reefing”.
At CommunityCorals reef hobbiests find a huge range of aquacultured coral frags at a fair price.
CommunityCorals supports people that propagate corals (Or that plan to do so) with an e-commerce platform that provides customers a great shopping experience. This way our Farmers can reach a huge number of people interested in coral frags.
It´s just a new way to enjoy the hobby!
Each CommunityCoral has the chance to become immortal through the sale on CommunityCorals.
Sounds crazy – but that’s how our coral friends are.
Each frag has the exact same genes as its parent, so it’s a clone. If we distribute these genes within the community, the number of frags will grow exponentially and our frags genes will still exist in 100, 300 or even 1000 years. (The new aquarium technology will certainly please our frag :D)
And who knows, maybe our frag will make it back to the reef, if mankind from the future allow it ..
By a minimum, we refer to a aquacultured / propagated coral if the mass of the parent coral after fragmentation is smaller than it has been when it was received.
The mass grown in the aquarium therefore, according to our definition, counts as a aquacultured coral.
These are the minimum requirements that we make for frags that are sold on CommunityCorals, but we believe that even when such a piece is sold, it has already helped protect the reefs and the animal is used to the environment of the aquarium.
Our vision is to trade corals between members of CommunityCorals for many generations, thereby helping to protect reefs and species conservation.
