Fish and crustaceans will begin living in and around the Mini Reefs as soon as they are placed in the water. Each Mini Reef can support hundreds of fish each year and these small fish will attach larger fish looking for a meal. The Mini Reefs will develop a full community of fish over time that will be living in and around it. Types of fish we have found utilizing these habitats are Groupers, Snook, Red and Black Drum, several types of Snapper, Grunts, Mullet, Barracuda, Whiting and many more. Our Mini Reefs are also home to Stone Crabs, Blue Crabs, Shrimp and Spiny Lobsters. Just imagine your children, family and friends seeing a thriving community of fish swimming in the waters around your home.
Each Mini Reef will filter between 25,000-35,000 gallons of water per day once fully developed so it will help improve the marine environment substantially. Water quality will improve as the animals on the Mini Reefs begin to remove the over abundance of plankton in the water.
