ReefBreeders started in 2011 in my parents garage with several cultures of phytoplankton, followed by copepods and rotifers for marine ornamental fish breeders. Since then I have remained committed to advancing aquaculture initiatives. I built my very first LED light less than a year later after seeing the potential for increased coral growth and energy efficiency, as well as reduced waste from bulb changes. I started ReefBreeders out of a love for the ocean and the beauty of our coral reefs. Unfortunately, our reefs in the wild are nowhere near as healthy as they were just decades ago.

In 2021 we partnered with Coral Restoration Foundation™ to help restore Florida’s Coral Reef. CRF™ is committed to restoring this crucial reef habitat, which has lost more than 97% of its once-dominant coral populations. CRF™ raises corals in their massive offshore coral nurseries and then rehomes them in their natural habitat. For every product purchased with the Coral Restoration Foundation™ logo on it, we will donate $5/$10 to their reef restoration efforts. There is no limit or cap on these donations. At the end of each year, we will update this page with the total donations made. We look forward to helping Coral Restoration Foundation™ further their efforts to restore Florida’s Coral Reef – a national treasure.
