CoraroC parts overview video
CoraroC branch HU-100 or HUL-100
They have the same shape and size, and the only difference is that HUL-100 have the option to use a lock screw (SCR-100). Our videos explain when and why we recommend a lock screw in the scape. The HU is especially useful to build branching aqua scape and gain height. HU have a total of four connection points. One in the bottom and three in the top in three different angles.
CoraroC shelf rock SA-100 and SAL-100.
The shelf rock is produced in two slightly varied sizes and will ship randomly. SAL-100 have the option with lock screw (SCR-100) in three connection points. The SA is especially useful to create “real estate” for corals and shelfing structures. SA have a total of nine connection points. Three in the bottom and three in the top and three on the sides. All connection points in non-symmetric angles.
CoraroC connector AA5-100
This piece is used to connect parts together. It fits to all connection points on HU and SA pieces.
CoraroC coral holder CHS-100, CHP-100 and CHC-100
You have three different options for the coral holders CHS-100, CHP-100 and CHC-100. CHS-100 is a combined product, and you glue your corals in a “traditional” way. CHS fits directly to HU and SA pieces. CHS-100 is also used to cover “empty” connection points.
CHP is a coral holder where you screw your coral into place. No gluing needed. CHC is a printed cover for empty connection points. Both CHS and CHC delivers with an encrusting ring (CHR-100) that is used in the connection point. CHR is very convenient to change if you don´t want the coral to encrust on to branch (HU) and shelfing (SA) pieces . All coral holders fit to the most common “egg crates” if you like to let the coral grow out in a frag tank before placing it in the display.
CoraroC lock screw SCR-100
SCR makes it possible to “lock” HUL and SAL in the connection point. This can be particularly useful when building more “advanced” structures and also to lock “key pieces” together. Watch our videos to find out more. If you only make a smaller scape with HU and SA you don´t need the lock screw SCR.
CoraroC glass holder GHI-100 and GHY-100
The glass holder consist of two parts. The inner part can be glued with silicone (same as gluing tanks) to your bottom or side of tank. This makes it possible to build “floating” aquascapes and scapes with minimal footprint on the bottom.
All holders fit directly in CoraroC branch HU and HUL as well as SA and SAL. It also fits to most common "egg crate" and "frag raster" so you can use it as a "normal" frag plug. The coral or coralline algae will in relatively short time encrust over the coral holder and you will have a very natural look of your reef. Below you will find the difference between them.
Coral holder CHS-100
Use CHS-100 to glue your corals like you would with traditional frag plugs. You can also use CHS-100 to just cover open connection points in the CoraroC system.
Coral holder CHC-100
This holder is like a printed traditional frag plug. Works with all types of encrusting corals. You can also use CHC-100 to just cover open connection points in the CoraroC system. CHC-100 always include the encrusting ring CHR-100 in delivery.
Coral holder CHP-100
This printed coral holder is our favourite. No need to glue frags or corals anymore. The spacer comes in two random sizes and work great with branching SPS -corals (even thin branching corals like Seriatopora and Acropora echinata and similar all the way down to ~3mm in diameter). Just tighten the screw and you will have a very secure mounting of your coral. If you like to mount a bigger coral or coral with thicker branches (15-20mm in diameter) like Stylopora, Acropora robusta and similar you just skip the spacer. If you trim the foot, it also works great to use for tabeling corals like Acropora efflorecens and Acropora solitaryensis and similar. It is no problem mount corals horizontally which normally is quite hard when using glue. Be a little bit careful to not tighten the screw to much when mounting corals with "soft" skeleton (for example Montipora digita) as you might squeeze the foot too much. It is also possible to use the holder with soft corals like Sarcophyton, Sinularia and simlilar. For encrusting corals like Montipora danae, Goniopora and similar where it is harder to "make" a foot we recommend using CHS-100 or CHC-100 and glue the coral.
Coral mounted in CHP-100
Acropora spathula on CHS-100 connection point still a little bit visibly
Frags mounted in CHP-100
Acropora spathula on CHS-100 connection point really hard to see
