Tonga Coral Photos

Tonga is one of the furthest south tropical places that corals and fish are shipped from. There is an exceptionally deep trench, the Tonga Trench, over 30,000-feet deep near the islands. There are cold water, nutrient-rich upwellings and great sea bird nesting colonies, which fertilize the land and sea. The water temperature is a cool 75-degrees F.

Tonga is a great place to order Acropora and many of the SPS corals, LPS types, such as Brains and Acans, and soft corals, such as Leathers. They have a limited diversity, with much of it endemic, but the quality is excellent.
