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.
One of the stand that is most admired by visitors during Interzoo is surely the Korallen Zucht booth, where there are always incredible corals with absolutely fabulous colors.
And also this year these corals have certainly not disappointed us. The colors that we saw was something amazing, the salmon-colored, to yellow, to green, from Acropora to Pocillopora, everything was absolutely amazing. Sure to keep these colors in our tanks is not easy, but when you see them in front of you…
And now enjoy all the photos …
Here is a beautiful time-lapse video that shows how easily a Fungia will free itself from sediment and sand with which had been accidentally covered.
