These micronized flakes with particle sizes between 100 and 400 μm mimic particulates that corals trap in their polyps. Evidence from research suggests that feeding may improve photosynthetic rates and increase the number of zooxanthellae in the coral. Zooxanthellae transform sunlight into chemical energy needed for growth.

Modern coral reef aquariums are complex systems and each system is different: definite specific instructions are therefore unfortunately not possible. Instead, we've put together a guide to help you make the most of our invertebrate products.

SPS Food micronized flakes

Corals have evolved to feed mainly at night when they can safely stretch their polyps. Since there are no enemies for coral polyps in our systems, it is possible to encourage corals to ingest food during the day. By giving a small amount of food five minutes before the planned feeding you train the corals to reach out the polyps and prepare for the main meal.

If possible, also switch off the pump in the sump / filter during feeding for 10 to 20 minutes. However, the circulation pump should remain switched on to keep the feed in suspension.

Mix the food with a small amount of aquarium water and add it with a pipette for each coral. If you cannot stop the main pump, do the same as above, but add the feed to the coral before the coral and let it circulate. If you do not have a pipette, place a pinch of food directly under a fast-flow area.

Instructions for Feeding

Depending on stocking density, feed daily or every two days. 
Feed one spoonful of SPS Food per 50 litres of water. At high stocking densities, feed two spoons per 50 litres of water. For best results, mix the feed with small amounts of aquarium water and pour into the water stream.

Make sure that the corals are sufficiently circulated to remove the waste products.

  • Do not reach into the pack with wet fingers.
  • Store in a cool, dry place.
