Elos Releases New Coral Food, Sv Sience M1 – Microplankton
ELOS svC Science M1 MICRO-zooplankton is a new SPS & LPS coral food that was just released in the United States.
It is well known that many corals feed on organic matter. And for many corals to thrive about 15% of their food source to comes from organic matter. Most corals are both heterotrophic (catching nutrition from outside sources) and autotrophic (relying on photosynthesis from symbiotic algae AKA zooxanthellae). Coral morphology clearly exemplifies the need for organic food sources with the presence of feeding tentacles.
Foods that should have a very fine consistency and, in order to ensure maximum absorption by the polyps of these “static” corals, should remain in suspension fluctuating for as long as possible.
Many coral feeds dissolve in a very short time, decreasing water quality before becoming a source of waste that is eventually removed by our protein skimmers.
ELOS sv Science M1 is designed to remain in suspension without dissolving for about 45-60 minutes. This insures more absorption by the filter feeders and less waste going to the protein skimmer. It also benefits the tank with reduced DOC levels (dissolved organic matter) and a potential increase in PO4 levels.
According to Elos, Sience M1 has been in development for several years but now it is available in the US.
