Our Beginnings;

Matt’s Coral Connection opened in May of 2008 and is located inside Executive Automotive, which is also owned by Matt. Matt has been a saltwater hobbyist for over 25 years. He started Matt’s Coral Connection because he loves the hobby and wants to be able to offer amazing corals at fair prices. Some of his suppliers are the largest saltwater suppliers in Florida. Matt takes the time to travel to their location every two or three months to hand pick their best corals to insure are customers get the best corals at the best prices! In addition, Matt has traveled to California to personally make connections with some of the West Coast largest Suppliers. This has allowed him to obtain corals not available locally. Matt is always looking for the best corals, newest connections, and ways to strive in the hobby he loves. Matt also buys and sells used tanks and equipment to offer an easy and affordable way for the new hobbyist to set up their saltwater system. We are always trying to find new ways to help our customer enjoy the hobby we love here at Matt's Coral Connection.​

-Small Polyp Stony coral require high light, strong flow, and good water conditions. SPS require calcium for their skeletal growth. SPS are very rewarding corals that can come in a wide array of colors. Recommend dosing Seachem Reef Fusion part I and II {under supplies}, and all the Aquavitro line, for trace elements, and Amino's. Brightwells Snow {coral food} is another good idea to ensure good nutrition.

Helpful hint: One of my secrets in this business is to mix 1 Marinland Carbon and 1 Phosguard in a large container. I then use that to fill my filter sock that I change twice in the 1st month and then monthly after that. Many people test for phosphate and get a 0 on test? They then wonder why they have algae. The reason is that the algae eats all the phosphates available, like a refugium does. Thus by adding phosphate remover and carbon, the food source is gone and the algae starves.
