About Austin Aqua Farms

Austin Aqua Farms provides the reef enthusiast the opportunity to purchase rare and beautiful corals from the worlds most exotic reefs.

At our 2800 sq.ft facility we meticulously monitor the chemistry of the water, lighting and temperature to maintain and grow the healthiest specimens for our customers 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Austin Aqua Farms uses the fastest shipping methods possible in well protected packaging.

As the owner, I am committed to customer satisfaction. I welcome customer requests, questions, feedback and most importantly, your return visit to the “farm”.

Please be aware that all of our corals are sold as WYSIWYG for better representations.  We also use 5/8″ eggcrate so you can estimate the size of the coral as well.

In the meantime, please feel free to sign up for our newsletter via the form at the bottom page, so you will be the first to know!

What we’re about:

After almost a decade of keeping saltwater aquariums I decided to take my love for the hobby to the next level and thus Austin Aqua Farms was created in 2007. With a “do it right the first time” philosophy only the best in equipment was purchased. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with not only the most beautiful coral but healthy coral as well.

To accomplish this and ensure you get only the best, all incoming coral is dipped in Tropic Marin PRO-CORAL CURE, Coral Revive, Iodine, or Bayers depending on the species of coral before being acclimated to our Import system.

Our tanks are kept with the following parameters:

ALK: 7.8-8.2dkh

Ca: 420-450ppm

Mg: 1390-1420ppm

No3: 5-15ppm

Po4: .02-.05ppm

Temp: 77-78F

Salinity: 1.026
