ReefPearls are small feeding pellets intended for corals and other filterfeeders. The (zoo)plankton-mimicking feeding pellets a neutral buoyancy, high nutritional value and low levels of inorganic phosphates. The feeding pellets remain stable in the water column for somewhere between 4 and 24 hour with very low nutrient leakage. This, combined with their neutral buoyancy results in pellets which continue to float around, providing ample feeding opportunity.

Each package contains pellets ranging in size from 5 to 200 µm (microns), the natural sizes of plankton, and can be easily used in an automated 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 filterfeeders.”

Due to their size, most fish will ignore ReefPearls, so please continue to feed you normal fish-food.
