In this second section I will refer to the particulate components that are produced by the rising deep currents, this component we call Plankton.
On DaniReef we have always claimed the importance of properly feed invertebrates in a reef aquarium, we have also written a very nice untranslated article just dedicated about feeding of corals that you can view here: L’alimentazione dei coralli. Finally, thanks to the availability of our friend Roberto Ferri we remember in a famous speech about coral’s nutrition and coloration that you can view right here (it’s an italian speech): The pigmentation of corals: a multifactorial situation. Report by Roberto Ferri, we have to test a sample of New PlanctonDose from Planctontech.
The New PlanctonDose is a dispenser of Zooplankton for aquarium, specifically the rotifer of genre Brachionus plicatilis, automated and almost self-sufficient, as long as we verses every 2-3 days about 50 ml of phytoplankton which serves to feed rotifers.
Our tour inside the Zoomark, or better inside Hall 19, started at the stand of ReefInternational where there were two major brands, Aquamedic that doesn’t need any introduction and PlanctonTech, a young italian company that sell live feed on the market with high quality fittings and amazingly accurate details.
Above I look at the new proposals of MiniReef from Aquamedic.
