  1. EasyReefs EasyDose: A Collection of Phytoplankton Foods In Fluid Bags That Attach to Your Dosing Pump for Feeding Soft and NPS Corals, Clams, & Inverts Phytoplankton, or marine microalgae, are microscopic vegetable cells that are found in the sea. Phytoplankton is at the base of the food chain in aquatic ecosystems. It serves as food for higher organisms, like zooplankton, filter feeders, and plant-eating corals. Marine phytoplankton is considered a superfood because it contains vitamins, essential fatty acids (EPA, DHA, ARA, GLA), essential amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, minerals and bioactive compounds involved in the metabolic activities of all living beings in general, and of marine organisms in particular. EasyDose by EasyReefs is one of the most game-changing product lines to hit the hobby. They've been thoroughly tested and proven safe and laboratory environments They are clean and ready to use. a veritable advancement for aquariums and aquarists. EasyDose is suspended in gel form and comprised of marine microalgae and marine minerals that can be preserved at room temperature for over 18 months. Easybooster. Liquid phytoplankton that is ready to use, easy and clean. Easyart. For culture, growing and maintenance of artemia, molluscs and other crustaceans. Easyroti (Prof.). For rotifer culture Easyrich (Monodosis y Prof.). For zooplancton enrichment. Easyconnect. Adaptor for Easydose prof formats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsNMUfA60yA Do corals feed off phytoplankton? Not many coral species feed directly on phytoplankton. However, all coral species feed indirectly off of it. How does EasyBooster affect the aquarium? The proliferation of microfauna and its subsequent reproduction produces an increase in the availability of zooplankton in the water column and rocks. This provides food for the corals, completing their nutritional requirements, and feed for fish that capture their prey between the rocks or in the sediment (Synchiropus, Valencianea, etc.). How do I know if EasyBooster is working correctly in my aquarium? The first symptom that it’s working correctly is the intensification of the color of SPS corals. Non-photosynthetic plant-eating corals swell and open their polyps to feed. Other filter feeders like Tridacnas, Seballestraei, etc. show increased growth and activity. In a short amount of time, there is a significant increase in the microfauna present in the aquarium, and fans and sponges appear soon after. Does EasyBooster increase the amount of phosphate in the aquarium? Yes, as do all foods in more or less measure. Phosphorus is an essential nutrient for life. However, the bioavailability of phosphorus associated with phytoplankton makes this quickly turn into biomass that does not disperse along the water column like a residual nutrient. Is it important to begin using EasyBooster in increasing doses? It is not only important; it is vital for the aquarium’s balance that you begin using it at a low dose and gradually increase it according to the instructions. This is to ensure that the bacteria, filter feeders and microfauna present in the aquarium increase gradually so that most of the phytoplankton we provide gets consumed. At what moment in the photoperiod should I add EasyBooster? If adding it manually, we recommend spacing out the doses, ideally two hours after the lights are turned on and one hour after the lights have been turned off. If you will only be dosing once a day, you should do it one hour after the lights have been turned off. If using a dosing pump, you should program it do provide a dose various times a day. Once opened, how long does EasyBooster 14 or 28 (single-use bags) maintain its properties? If only using a portion of the contents of the bag, the rest should be used in the following 24 hours. Once opened, how long does EasyBooster 25 maintain its properties? The product will not be altered if you are careful to maintain the bag well closed and sealed, extracting all the air that may have entered the bag. If using EasyBoster 25 as shown in the image, it will be maintained intact during the same period indicated by the expiration date. This is because the suction from the dosing pump compresses the bag preventing any air from entering. Once opened, how long does EasyBooster prof maintain its properties? EasyBooster prof properties are not altered with respect to its expiration date because the packaging is designed specifically so that oxygen and humidity do not come into contact with the product. Can EasyReefs corals and EasyBooster be used for the same purpose? Yes, both products have been developed as feed for the base of the aquarium food chain. Are there any advantages to using EasyBooster or EasyReefs Corals? Yes! Currently, EasyReefs Corals are comprised of a blend of 3 microalgae with a highly effective nutritional profile. However, EasyBooster contains 4 microalgae that guarantee an optimum nutritional profile. EasyReefs Corals is only lyophilized phytoplankton, whereas EasyBooster is phytoplankton suspended in a mineral solution that contributes to the re-establishment of some compounds that are necessary for the aquarium, like magnesium and potassium. EasyBooster can be added to the aquarium automatically through a dosing pump, making it very easy to use compared to preparing the lyophilized product. Can I pour EasyBooster directly over corals? No. Easybooster is designed to be dispersed in water and act as an activator of the food chain, not as feed for corals. The mineral solution is too concentrated and could damage the animal’s tissues.

    It's Feeding Time!

    These guys put up such a lovely show when feeding. I was lucky to get this shot :-)

    Acan Echinata: How fast does it grow?

    Thinking of buying a decent sized colony of Acan Echinata on sale at my LFS. Does anyone know how fast this coral grows? With/without feeding? Is it hard to care for? Basically any advice? Is it ok for someone with beginner to moderate experience with corals? (I’ve been keeping Monty Cap trumpets and frogspawn successfully for a few months)
  4. I have a betta named Buddy. Had him for about 8 months maybe? This month I got a mystery snail and 2 ghost shrimp to join him. The mystery snail was fine. Buddy didn't really mind him. He got stuck in the filter and died. The ghost shrimp hid a lot. My fish got sick so he's in a separate tank right now. The shrimp are alone in the original 5 gallon tank. They have never been so happy looking and ACTIVE! Usually they hide until it's bedtime and Buddy is sleeping. That's the only time they can eat as well. Buddy will see their food and guard it so they cannot eat. I try to put more food in another place so Buddy can't guard both areas. I recently had problems with high pH thus why Buddy is sick and I think it's cuz we left food out for them and it got icky. I know they eat other crap in the tank but it's very clean and the only live plants I have is one of those moss ball things. The shrimpies are SOOOOO happy alone being able to eat anytime during the day not being chased. Do I put Buddy back in the 5 gallon tank with the shrimpies and see what happens or do I put the shrimpies in a 2.5 gallon tank alone? Please help!

    can we? Or can we not?

    So as the title states, can we? Or can we not? Being Reef hobbiest as a whole we all have many things we say can or cannot be done, from fish store employees, to hobby literature, , veterans, to beginners, everybody’s opinions are different. I’ve worked in the industry for years, and have heard many many things. What I’ve noticed is most of these have no bases in actual science. Some of which I’ve proven through expierments to be false and others true (gorgonians do not die if they touch air, some sponges however do) what I have found is a “you cannot unless you....” is more appropriate. So everybody post things that you think cannot be done or “rules” you have heard that you are unsure about and let’s discuss them. See if someone has evidence to the contrary. And maybe have some results for expierments proving if this to be the case or not. Please let’s not take unneeded risks with livestock, always be mindful and responsible of the creatures we care for. And please keep an open mind and remember some of the species we keep now would have been considered impossible not that long ago.
  6. Hello guys, Just added a clown pair to my previously coral only setup. I already feed my corals reef roids regularly. This got me thinking about how practical feeding the fish and coral the same thing, in one go, would be. I know a lot of you probably have their own DIY recipe of sorts for feeding the tank. Care to share? My thoughts were something on the line of: - Seafood mix - Garlic - Bit of reef roids (for good measure) Blend and freeze. What are your thoughts?

    Reef Roids - how often?

    Hello guys, I have a 12g coral only system (+ 1 small shrimp). The corals are pretty small atm, zoas mainly. For the last month and a half I have been feeding them reef roids, with great results. I have been feeding them daily, with the recommended dose (eyeball measurements). Filtration-wise, I run filter pads, purigen, skimmer and a refugium. Trochus snails help too. Everything looks amazing. Corals look healthy, colorful and spreading. Algae is nowhere to be seen. Thing is...most people seem to feed much less often than I do. Wouldn't want to be running into any problems in the future by being overfeeding now. So, what would be a sign I might be over doing it? Besides zoas having wet dreams...
  8. I just added a Clarkii Clown to my BC32. How long should I wait before feeding it?

    Fish Feeding Equation

    What pellet food is needed, and how often should I feed a Clownfish, a sexy shrimp, and a few CUC snails? @Clown79 recommended I use Spectrum Thera Pellets. They seem to have generally positive reviews online and is what I am looking to get. Could I get away with feeding the pellets once a day, and feeding a bit of Rod's biweekly? To complicate the equation further, I'm looking into getting some Tisbe Pods to the tank. I am sure I have made a simple thing confusing, but still would like to hear your comments! Thanks! -Generic Reefer

    feeding vinegar worms

    Hello all, I just have a quick question. I culture vinegar eels for my freshwater fry. My question is.. can i feed this to my saltwater fishes and corals? i put 3 drops of them on my nano tank and my clowns went crazy for them. Is this safe or better not to do it?

    Feeding Crabs?

    I have a 5 gallon Pico with an emerald crab, hermit crab and hopefully a smaller shrimp once my LFS gets some in. But for right now there are only the two crabs. I have two pieces of rock that are covered in red and green algae. They pick off the algaes and eat them. Should I be adding a supplement like algae waffers or is the algae good for them? It just feels weird having a tank and not putting any food in it lol.
