A freshwater crustacean that is one of the smallest natural reef inhabitants. This 0.5 to 1mm creature feeds small fragments of plant and animal materials make it a great food source for the smallest creatures in your reef aquarium or for those looking for something to feed newborn fish.
Use one cube daily for each fifty (50) gallons of water in your reef aquarium to promote filter feeder growth and extension. Use a pipet to direct feed those corals requiring additional nutrition. For fry, feed an amount they completely consume within forty (40) seconds up to ten (10) times per day. Avoid over-feeding as it can cause water quality issues.
Ideal For: Most reef environments and for use with newborn fish who require a very small nutrient source.
For other feeding options, ask your local pet professional about our Hikari® formulated, Bio-Pure® FD or other Bio Pure® Frozen food offerings.
Be Careful: Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding and any uneaten food should be removed after the feeding period to avoid water quality issues and the health problems that can result. Additionally, feeding live or frozen foods can spoil your aquatic pet and make feeding a formulated food more difficult. Live or frozen foods should be used as a treat to “mix up” your nutritional offering, not act as a substitute for good nutrient selection that offers a full offering of necessary nutrition.
Please note: Handling a frozen food that is derived from a live animal can cause the same allergic reaction possible by handling the live animal itself. To avoid potential problems, always wash your hands immediately after use and avoid contact with your nose and mouth prior to washing.
