More About Our Facility
First opened in July, 2005, our Aquaculture
Coral & Aquatic Life Facility is one of the
nation's few premier coral propagation facilities. Our
cutting-edge facility employs the most sophisticated
technology in lighting, filtration, water movement, and
quarantine systems to ensure the hardiest and
disease-free coral and fish selection for home
aquariums. Our staff of aquatic experts and diagnostic
specialists personally oversees the health of all of the
aquatic life housed in Rhinelander, WI.
Designed by LiveAquaria.com Director Kevin Kohen,
this unique facility is dedicated to education,
conservation and the advancement of the hobby through
best practices and smart choices. We are proud to offer
reef and marine aquarium enthusiasts one of the largest
selections of premium captive grown, aquacultured and
maricultured aquatic life. Through our successful
efforts in coral propagation, an ever-increasing number
Captive Grown Corals (CCGC) are available for reef
hobbyists. We are so confident of our hardy aquacultured
corals that each CCGC frag comes with a Certificate of
Authenticity and an industry-leading 30-day
Our Aquaculture Coral & Aquatic Life Facility is
also home to the exclusive WYSIWYG
(What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get) Diver's Den®. Our
holding systems house a prized selection of hard-to-find
fish, corals and invertebrates. Each species is
quarantined and then photographed for sale so what you
see is TRULY what you get.
