View Full Version : Coral Props makes the media!!!
03/03/2011, 03:40 PM
So, everyone needs to make sure they buy a copy of Sunday's Spokesman Review, for Sunday, March 6th! Coral Props will be highlighted, in the Business section!! As an addition, to the story, the Spokesman Review wanted to interview local customers and see and photograph the "final product." The article will include Coral Props' Green House Coral Grow operation, as well as reef tanks, to show the community what can be done, in our hobby. As part of this, I had a phone interview, with the Spokesman Review, last week. They're also coming to my home, tomorrow, to photograph our tanks. Of course, this means I've been spending all day CLEANING the tanks, and consolidating our "too many" frag racks, down to ONLY 3! lol
For those of you, who may still be unfamiliar with Coral Props, Henk, the owner has a quite large green house. In this green house, Henk grows and propagates MANY beautiful corals and a lot of gorgeous clams. I'm talking 6"+ clams!!!
Henk grows everything under natural sunlight, with no artificial lighting at all. I was amazed at the beauty and obvious health of all of his corals and clams. Even under natural sunlight, everything was very colorful. It'll all look even more amazing, in our tanks!
Here's a link to their website and I encourage everyone to visit it. CoralProps - Shop Home (http://www.coralprops.com/)
Once the article is published, watch this thread, for a link to the article!

Funny, I was just coming on here to say congrats to Henk for the video, popped up in my facebook this morning and I was like wait, I've heard of them!

Organism, thanks for sharing that! Stay tuned for more links, to the actual article, in a few days. I gotta say, we're lucky to have Coral Props, in our back yard. Our club recently took a field trip there and it was AMAZING!!

Thanks Michael for initiating this post and for your willingness to show your tank off to the media. It looks great, and soooo clean. :-)
Miguel, thanks for posting the link of the video. You saw it a lot earlier than I did. I still need to setup a Facebook account for CoralProps. More work to do......

The above posted video has been edited, with a few seconds added. Unfortunately, some of those "few seconds" include my ugly mug...lol.
Henk, when you do get a Facebook set up, please let us know, so those of us addicted to Facebook, can add you!

The video is now perfect!!!
I will try to setup the Facebook for CoralProps next week. Its already for a long time on my todo list and now it is a great time to complete that task.

HAHA Perfect if it's supposed to feature an "ugly mug," Mine of course, not yours! At least it was only for a couple of seconds. The paper comes out tomorrow! Can't wait!!
With so much spare time on your hands, get that Facebook up!! Just kidding! I realize you've been REALLY BUSY lately and setting up a FB account probably isn't all that high on the priority list...lol.

One of the clips, from this morning's LIVE broadcast. http://www.kxly.com/localvideo/index.html?v=25036

Wow, that came out really good! At the beginning Henk had this look on his face like he'd pay a couple grand just to get a few more hour's sleep :D
Way to keep your cool on live tv too, that can't be easy.
