Coral Diet Directions
Last Updated: 12/07/2013
Coral Diet is formulated as a completely balanced feed designed specifically for invertebrates such as shrimp, filter feeders, and corals that require zooplankton as part of their natural diet. It is microencapsulated, with particles having a soft, moist texture enabling easy feeding and high attractability.

Coral Diet is a blend of the most important marine vitamins (vitamin A, D3, E, C), marine proteins, fibre, HUFA, probiotics, Nannochloropsis, Tetraselmis, Isochrysis, Pavlova, Thallasiosira, with natural emulsifiers and free nucleotides to promote cell regeneration for healthy vibrant animals. Naturally occuring pigments such as Astaxanthin ensure that your animals maintain their intense colouration that they exhibit in their natural environment.

How Much to Feed?
If you have not used Coral Diet before, start with 2ml per 100L each day. Your animals will rapidly become accustomed to the diet and be able to feed on quite a bit more. Common dosage for an average mature system is 3-5ml per 100L each day. Always shake the pouch a few times before opening it.

We recommend placing your skimmer on a timer to turn off for a couple of hours while adding the algae.

Coral Diet must be stored in your refrigerator and cannot be frozen, this will break many of the cells.
For aquarium use only - Not for human consumption
