    The Reef Ball Foundation is a group dedicated to restoring reefs with artificial cement structures. This foundation also has a terrific program that incorporates the ashes of a loved one into the Reef Ball structures creating an eternal memorial as the structure develops into a sanctuary of marine life. See the video below, and all the different styles offered here.

     

    I am extremely delighted to write that the hobby is aiding in the creation of these local (Fl) artificial reefs. Some of the  Uberfrags crew have teamed up with the Reef Ball Foundation to create miniature versions for reef aquariums. They will be giving various workshops highlighting the use of Reef Balls in the ocean, while also shining a spotlight on coral propagation in aquariums (See here for demo models). The best part? Prices range from $8 for the 2.5″ x 2.5″ Mini to $18 for the 7.5″ x 5″ Large  and sales of these small aquarium reef balls will directly help the Reef Ball Foundation. We’ll be supporting this cause the best we can. More information to come.

      Yet another way to use those frags without just putting them on the sandbed. Awesome…I’ll definitely be getting some of those. Very, very cool-I absolutely love stories like this.

      Reefballs are at the Marriott in Grand Cayman. I loved snorkelling around them everyday. There was alot of life on them.
