Natural live probiotic bacterioplanktonic food specially cultured and formulated for stony/soft corals, bivalves, mollusks, mysid shrimps, artemia, rotifers, sponges, sea squirts, fanworms, sea cucumbers and other filter feeders.
Tropic Edens live concentrated bactoplankton is a special blend of more than 15 species of bacterioplanktons from 0.2 - 2.0 microns which ensure optimal result for a wide range of feeding requirements. It is rich in a wide range of bacterial enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and essential micronutrients, and is the critical foundation of food source that supports many other higher life forms in the food chain of the natural coral reef.
Bacterioplankton Plays an Important Role in the Recycling and Remineralization of Nutrients and Minerals in Aquatic Systems.
Major Food Source for Wide Range of Invertebrates and Filter Feeders such as Sponges, Fan Worms, Tunicates, Bivalves, as well as Corals Including Acropora, Montipora, Pocillopora, Seriatopora and Stylophora.
Essential in Keeping Non-Photosynthetic Corals and Difficult-to-Feed Species (e.g., Gorgonian sp., Dendronephthya sp.) that Mainly Depend on Filter Feeding of Planktonic Food!
Critical Food to Larvae which in turn are indispensable Food for Corals and Filter Feeding Organisms.
Free-Floating Forms Easily Caught and Consumed by Filter Feeders.
Does Not Sink to Bottom, Die and Decompose Easily.
Greatly Enhance the Coloration of Corals and Invertebrates!
Cultured with Strains of 100% pure Research Grade Media Treated with Three Major Steps of Strict Sterilization Procedures including UV Radiation and Ultra High Pressure Treatment.
