Continuum Aquatics Micro Blast Invertebrate & Filter Feeders Food - 250 ml Information



Micro•Blast
Description: Invertebrate Food for Live Corals

Features:
• Nutritious balanced diet for fine filter feeders.
• Provides proteins, naturally occurring lipids and vitamins
• Rich in chlorophyll, carotenoids and xanthins

Advantages:
Micro•Blast is a nutritious, balanced diet for sponges, anemones, gorgonians, small polyped soft and stony corals, clams, feather dusters, tunicates and other fine filter feeders, developed over years of testing. It provides for growth and increased coloration, by providing all of the essential amino acids required by invertebrates, naturally occuring marine lipids, including important omega fatty acids EPA and DHA, and a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals. It also provides rich bioavailable pigments including chlorophyll, carotenoids, and phycocyanin, containing beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein, xanthophylis, zeaxanthin, canthaxanthin and other pigments for coloration. Micro•Blast does not require refrigeration, but refrigeration will prolong shelf life.

Use in Aquarium Keeping:
It is recommended that you turn off your protein skimmer and other filtration for 15 to 30 minutes prior to adding the Micro•Blast to the aquarium. Be careful when feeding liquid foods, not to overload the system. Nitrite testing is recommended when feeding heavily. It is recommended that you not add more than the recommended dosage of any food per day. Continuum recommends that the hobbyist vary the types and sizes of foods delivered into the reef aquarium. Other Continuum foods that make good choices for this food rotation include Coral Exponential, Phyto•Blast, Zoo•Blast and Ocean Snow. Also, occasionally blending the foods and using them as soaks for other foods will give your invertebrates a variety simulating nature. Vary the time of day for feeding, as well, being sure to feed at night for those organisms that primarily feed nocturnally. Many corals feed primarily at night, extending their tentacles and mesentarial filaments, using their nematocysts to capture prey, and entrapping prey on their sticky tentacles with mucus and drawing it into their mouths.

Directions:
Shake well prior to use. Add 1/2 capful (2.5 ml) per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water 2 to 3 times per week, in an area of high flow. More may be added in heavily loaded systems. May also be added at the rate of a few drops per gallon.

Expert Use:
Target feeding is the best method of addition. Use a turkey baster, pipette, or similar tool to release upstream of animals to be fed. Do not touch corals with tool. Do not insert tool into this bottle, particularly do not allow aquarium water to enter the bottle, to do so will introduce bacteria into the product and accelerate its decomposition. Instead, pour appropriate amount of Micro•Blast into a cup and use the tool in the cup. Feed all that you pour and do not return any product to the container (again to prevent contamination).

Caution:
Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. If ingested drink water. If in eyes flush with water.

The best invert food I've foun Product Review by KLAUS ADLER (Posted on 3/7/14)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: This product is much more potent, and therefore goes further than other invert foods I have found, which makes it economical to use. Smells fresh, like food, not like medicine as some products do. My corals, feather dusters, anemones all love it. I rotate it with other Continuum foods such as Zoo Blast and Phytoblast, as the bottle recommends. Also like the Coral Exponential!
