ME CORAL FOOD is a dry powdered coral food made from freeze dried Zooplankton and other crustaceous animals.  No cheap fillers like yeast, soy meal, or fish meal.  We only add beneficial Spirulina and Amino Acids, which help enhance coral coloration and growth.   Super Food is designed to feed all corals like SPS, LPS, Zoas, Chalice, Montis, Softies, Clams,  filter feeders and small fish.   No preservatives are added, as many contain phosphates.  Your corals will thank you for using ME Super Food!

Description

Research has shown that corals need energy for growth, coloration, respiration, reproduction, and mucus production.  Sunlight or photosynthesis alone will not meet corals’ demand for energy.   For corals to do best, we must provide them with food and nourishment similar to what is available in a natural coral reef environment.    On the reef, corals consume suspended food particles or Dissolved Organic Matter (DOM), and Zooplankton.   In our super skimmed and filtered aquariums, we are void of these foods, hence it can limit coral growth.   Feeding Super Food replicates what happens in the wild by adding Zooplankton and other high protein crustaceans which are rich in amino acids, protein, and fatty acids to the water column.

Directions:  Rehydrate (1/2 tsp per 100 gal) in seawater for 5 minutes.  Pour into a high flow area of tank to get best dispersion.  Can also be added to sump right before return pump and after filtration devices, so it blows into the system.  Works best if skimmer is turned off, but not necessary.  Can also be used to target feed specific corals with a turkey baster.

Caution:  Not intended for human consumption.  Keep away from children and pets.  If swallowed, do not induce vomiting.  Drink water.

Ingredients:  Rotifers, Copepods, Zyclops, Plankton (DOM), Daphnia, Krill Superba, Gamarus, Mysis, Spirulina, Aspartic and Glutamic Acids

Nutritional Analysis:  Protein (min) 60%, Fat (min) 16%, Fiber (max) 4%, Ash (max) 6%, Moisture (max) 3%

Particle Size: 50-1600 microns

Using in conjunction with ME Polyp Extender:  Use ME Polyp Extender as indicated on bottle first.   15 minutes after adding ME Polyp Extender to the system, add ME Super Food.   This gives corals 15 minutes to exhibit a feeding response due to the amino acids they are eating.  Now that they are feeding and extended, they have a more diverse food source to eat before it gets removed from our systems naturally.

Tip:  Corals can eat an enormous amount of food in a day.   So overfeeding in theory can be a good thing for corals; however every system has different bioload and filtration system.   Feeding should only be done to the point where our system can digest the food.   In other words, if your system can’t consume all the food, it could break down into phosphates.   Elevated po4 can cause unwanted algae growth.  So use your test kit to determine if your feeding too little or too much.

    I used this product for the first time today and to say I am impressed is an understatement.
    Firstly, in addition to the ME Coral food and Polyp Extender that I ordered, I also received 2 sample packets of the Coral Food in addition to some ME Fish Food pellets which are listed on the website for $10.99. Talk about bang for your buck!
    I am relatively new to the Salt Water Hobby and am still in that exploratory phase as far as which products are best for me. This also means I have tested several different brands of fish and coral foods already. I can say without any doubt that my LPS corals (duncan, clove polyp and xenia) responded to the ME Coral food far more dramatically than any of the other foods I have tried. In fact my Duncan swelled up so large I thought it was going to split open lol.
    In closing, I see no reason to look further for my coral needs and I will be looking to these guys for other needs in the future as well (carbon dips etc).

      Thank you for the positive review! The Amino acids in the coral food causes a rapid feeding response in all corals. Your seeing it! The Aminos are a great source of food for corals. Having the corals rapidly go into feeding mode also aids in food particle capture, as food disappears from the tank in a few minutes. Reading the ingredient list is also very important—in all products! ME strives to create the best in everything ME! Thanks again!

    Ok so I heard about MECORAL from a local reefer and was skeptical at first. I received the one gallon mix of calcium and Alkalinity in a good time frame and when mixing I couldn’t believe my eyes it went TOTALLY CLEAR in less than 5 min I really couldn’t believe it. I only ordered the 3 cal, alk, and mag, but received some super glue, coral dip, and Coral food for a free sample and I have to say I’ve used every product out there almost but all these are by far the best in all categories. I will be ordering more of everything I got and gonna add animos . I know it’s hard to believe but after just 2 weeks my corals look totally different hopefully they will be ok through this hurricane I’m in now in Wilmington NC .
