For hard and soft corals, other invertebrates, fish larvae and fishes requiring zooplankton in the range of 2 to 4 millimeters and smaller.
Readily accepted by cardinal tetras and other small freshwater fish, as well as all marine fish that feed on small prey.
Sicce CALANUS offers a revolutionary approach to feeding both hard and soft corals, other invertebrates, fish larvae and fishes requiring zooplankton in the range of 2 to 4 millimeters and smaller. CALANUS contains 100% natural copepods harvested from the pristine waters of the Arctic Ocean. Feeding on abundant phytoplankton, our copepods provide top-quality protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and anti-oxidant compounds important in the diet of marine organisms. Copepods are an important part of natural marine food webs.
Research has shown that certain amino acids play a role in the development of the bright pigments that make corals so popular with aquarium enthusiasts. CALANUS supplies all the amino acids required by corals, and is rich in threonine, essential to corals and many other invertebrates.

Directions: For each 25 gallons of aquarium capacity, rehydrate 1/8 teaspoon (1 scoop) of Calanus™ in a small amount of water. We recommend adding Sicce HyperKoral or Sicce HyperGarlic. Allow to soak for 15 minutes. Use a dropper to spread rehydrated food in the vicinity of corals, or add directly to the aquarium in an area of good water movement. Some corals feed better at night, so day and/or night feedings are recommended. Because every aquarium is different, we recommend adjusting feeding practices based on the response of the organisms in the tank. Three to four feedings per week is a typical schedule. Store rehydrated product in the refrigerator.
Store tightly sealed in a cool, dry place.
