Shopping for live coral for sale on the Internet can be worrisome. A reef hobbyist can never be 100% sure what coral or invertebrate is going to show up in the mail once an order is placed. Will it look like the coral seen online? Although there is no way the online coral shopping experience will fully replace an in-person visit to Tidal Gardens, What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) corals help.
With WYSIWYG corals for sale here at Tidal Gardens, you can at least see the actual coral frag or colony before you buy. The WYSIWYG corals are photographed under a mix of ATI T5 fluorescent bulbs and LEDs. Corals grown in the greenhouse also receive natural sunlight in addition to T5 and LED lighting. Corals grown in our new facility receive pure LED lighting. We also try to include multiple shots of the coral as well as the appearance of the WYSIWYG coral under different types of lighting.
