At CoralProps coral farm, owner Henk Borst will teach you how sea coral grows and how a coral farm is made. You'll learn the proper care and feeding of sea coral (large-polyped stony, small-polyped stony, aquacultured, and reef collected), sea mushrooms, polyps, and clams. Plus, he'll answer the most burning question: What IS coral?! Is it really formed by the skeletons of sea animals? Is coral a limestone formation formed in the sea by millions of tiny animals called polyps?
Age: All children must be able to follow all the safety rules (like don't put your hand into any tank or touch any coral!)
Recommended for ages 3 and older. There is no room for strollers. The coral tanks sit on the ground and are about 2 feet tall. Little ones won't be able to see into the tanks unless they are held up higher.
