ReefPearls are (zoo)plankton mimicking feeding pellets for corals and other filter feeders. They have a neutral buoyancy, high nutritional value and low levels of inorganic phosphates.
ReefPearls contain microencapsulated particles which are stable for 4-24 hours in the water column and have a low leakage of nutrients, thus floating around for a long time and allowing a long feeding time for your animals. ReefPearls consists of a mixture of different pellet sizes, ranging from 5-200 µm (microns) that is mimicking the natural sizes of plankton. They can simply be dosed by using an automated fish feeder.
ReefPearls contain the essential levels of phosphates, however, in contrast to most other feeds, these phosphates are in an organic form (attached to proteins and DNA) instead of inorganic phosphates (PO4). This will result in lower pollution of your tank and better uptake of this essential element by your corals and other filter feeders. Available in 5-200µm and 500-1000µm pellet size.
Feeding depends on which kind and how much corals and/or filter feeders you need to feed. It also depend on the water volume of your aquarium. As guideline we suggest 2 feeding’s a day for photosynthetic corals and 6-12 feeding’s a day for non-photosynthetic corals. Start with 1/5 – 1/4 of a teaspoon of food per feeding time for each 350-500 litres of water. After your corals are used to the feeding regime, you can slowly add more food per feeding time. Keep feeding your fish and other animals like normally with a premium flake and/or pellet fish food like Omega One Fish Food and/or frozen fish foods like brine shrimp, mysis, krill, etc.

Because of the high nutritional value and feeding frequency of the ReefPearls, please keep an eye on the NO3 and PO4 levels in your aquarium. In order to easily control Nitrates (NO3) we suggest using our NP Reducing BioPellets.
