I get asked a lot how we do what we do, and what makes us different. The answer to that isn’t any single reason, it’s the amalgamation of many different strengths from different people.
Our one common bond is our love of coral and reef tanks. Regardless of the amount of amazing corals that pass through our hands, we still stop short and marvel at them all. Coral feeding still captivates us. Seeing new growth is fuel to our fire.
Reefing experiences aside, our professional backgrounds have helped propel Chaos forward and put us on the map. With a combined 40 years experience founding, running, and growing various businesses, we were able to take all that we learned separately and apply it to the coral trade. The most important aspect of business we’ve learned over the years has been customer service. We pride ourselves on taking care of our clients and strive to be known as the best in the business in that regard.
We also started Chaos very differently than most other farms start. The majority of coral vendors start as hobbyists in a small frag tank with a few corals that they’ve had luck with. Others simply start with a little magnetic frag rack on their main display. That’s pretty much the opposite of the way Chaos goes about things. We started by renting a warehouse and putting 1,400 gallons of frag space in. Then we loaded it with the best equipment the market had to offer. Our entire farm runs on Ecotech Marine lights, pumps, and wave makers. Vertex skimmers keep the water clean, and BRS reactors polish it. RODI I handled with by a custom built AquaFX unit. Chaos came strong out of the gate and we’re here to stay.
As cliche as it sounds, at the end of the day it’s team work that makes the dream work. That’s how we get it done at Chaos Aquaculture.
