Does the reef chili come with the feeding bottle or is that sold separately?
Question by: Brian on Nov 22, 2013 3:32:00 AM
Hi Brian,
Feeding bottles are sold separately.

Can Reef Chili be used to feed clams?
Question by: Rob on Apr 25, 2016 1:09:00 PM
You can! Would be a great supplement!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 27, 2016 2:45:00 PM
BRS,
I have a question about how the reef chili product (as well as reef roids) is used to feed sps corals. I have various acropora, seriotopora, pocillopora, and montipora in my tank. They're all doing well but I've read these products will increase color, polyp extension, and growth. How does this work since the sps corals don't seem to consume the food directly as do lps or anemones. Do sps absorb dissolved amino acids or other nutrients from the water added via these foods? How should I best use these foods to benefit my sps corals?

Thanks, John
Question by: John on Mar 30, 2016 8:43:00 AM
Great questions!
For the most part Reef chili is designed for more soft corals and LPS which can take food directly. With SPS you will not need to supplement with reef shili rather using amino acid and other trace elements to supplement SPS. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Can you mix a bunch of this up and use it over the course of a few months for automated feeding?
Question by: Lance on Feb 8, 2016 6:06:00 PM
Great question!
In short the answer is no, unfortunately the food would being to have issue and decay rather quickly as well as settle down to the bottom of a container. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 10, 2016 1:40:00 PM
How often do I use the reef chili, and how much per gallon of water?
Question by: John on Mar 31, 2016 11:00:00 AM
Great question!
The dosage can be done one to 5 times a week depending on your system and likeliness of the corals to consume the food. Usually one to two times per week is common. Around 1 spoonful per 20 gallons will work well and it can be target fed if needed! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 31, 2016 11:35:00 AM
Before introducing the Reef Chili into the tank, would it be beneficial to turn the return pumps off for a specific period of time to ensure it doesn't go down the drain and get caught in the filter sock?
Question by: Brian Bergmam on Mar 20, 2016 2:47:00 PM
Great question!
it is a great idea to stop the return pump from taking away the left over food. In most cases this can be as little as 5 minutes. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 21, 2016 6:25:00 PM
Hi! Just got my reef chili, but it didn't have a measuring spoon. Can you please tell me the measurement? Thanks!!
Question by: Elizabeth on Aug 16, 2014 6:08:00 AM
Hi Elizabeth,

We actually pack the spoon inside of the bottle so you may need to do a little digging to find it. If you still can't find it let us know and we will get one sent out right away. You can call our Customer Service team at 763-432-9691.

The measuring spoon is actually 1/32 of a teaspoon so for the time being I would say just add a pinch of Reef Chili instead of a scoop.

Hope this helps!
Have a great day :)

After one feeding my corals had their tentacles out, however when no feed the tank my fat clowns eat most of it out of the water column. They wake up and frenzy! So I tried even later at night, this time spot feeding with pumps off, and those clowns woke up and were bumping against corals trying to eat! How can I be sure the corals are getting the full benefit?
Question by: Lola on Apr 18, 2016 10:39:00 AM
Great question!
By protecting the coral when feeding by using an upside down cup with a hole drilled to allow the turkey baster or feeding device through you can protect the corals from shrimp and fish. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

What is the shelf life on the BRS Reef Chili? And does it loose some of the nutritional values after the shelf life date? Cheers
Question by: Alex H. on May 21, 2015 5:46:00 PM
Hey Alex,
Great question,
Reef Chili will stay fresh for 3-4 months at room temperature. Reef Chili will stay fresh in the fridge for 9-12 months depending on how humid and cold your fridge is. For maximum freshness always make sure to keep the cap on tight. Any time after these dates and we recommend replacing the reef chili.

What types of corals can be feed with Reef Chili? Lobophylia for example?
Question by: Paul Himmelman on Mar 28, 2016 12:12:00 PM
Great question!
Reef chili is designed for a wide variety of corals which accept supplemental food. This is a fantastic source of nutrition for a Lobophylia and many other LPS and Softies. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Will my fish like Reef Chili as well?
Question by: Coral Queen on Feb 7, 2014 3:30:00 AM
Lots of fish love Reef Chili! I know my anthias go nuts every-time I add it to me tank.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Feb 7, 2014 3:30:00 AM

Full Details

Instructions: Suggest using every other day and adjust to your tanks needs.

1: Use the included portion spoon and add one level spoonful per 20 gallons to a half cup of tank water.

2: Shake the mixture vigorously for 30 seconds.

3: Either pour the mixture directly into the tank or target feed each coral with a syringe.

Each jar of BRS Reef Chili includes directions and a measuring spoon.

Reef Chili was originally created as a frozen fish/coral food and it worked out great, except for one thing, cost! Shipping frozen products overnight around the country is simply too expensive. Bulk Reef Supply co-founder Ryan made this product because he was tired of trying to feed his tank a dozen different things to keep all the corals and fish healthy and colorful. He also wanted to achieve faster growth rates from some of his slow growing frags and see his otherwise nocturnal corals come "alive" during the day with the lights on. All these products were frozen, expensive to ship and none of them are sold by the same vendor. He soon realized that none of this was necessary! He could make a 100% nutritionally complete food that didn't need to be frozen. Better yet, it can be done for just a few dollars a month.

    • Spray Dried Phytoplankton Freeze Dried Rotifers
    • Freeze Dried Copepods
    • Dried Daphnia

With this much variety you can feel safe knowing that you have done your best to meet the nutritional needs of every filter feeder in your tank. There is absolutely no need to use any other products.

  • Very Clean food By Tim on 11/6/2016

    Never feel guilty about feeding within recommended range. It always feels like the tank likes it and it doesn't pollute the water.
  • Amazing By Gb on 10/11/2016

    I know this is a Coral food, but my fish go Bonkers for this stuff.. The Corals respond good as well. Highly recommend this and cannot imagine anyone saying this is not a good product. A must try!!!

    A little goes a loooong way.
  • Gets the coral drooling. By Tyler on 10/6/2016

    I'm new to corals and feeding but this stuff makes the polyps appear. I blast this on everything and use before dropping some mysis into my acans and candy canes. The 1.5 oz looks like it will last a long time. Good buy!
  • My corals love it By Earl on 9/14/2016

    I feed this about once or sometimes twice a week and my corals thrive. I have to do it after lights out because my fish like it too. I target feed my acans but broadcast feed everything else.
  • Amazing! By Shane on 9/12/2016

    What an amazing product. I've tried endless foods on the market over the last 5 years and this stuff gets the most feeding response from my coral. I wish I had known about this product years ago. This stuff goes a long way, is very reasonably priced, and works. What more could you ask for. Thanks BRS for another amazing product!
  • Another excellent product By William on 8/21/2016

    I was skeptical when I bought it, but I figured it was worth a shot. I mixed some up in the bottle and fogged off a few shots near the power heads and there were polyps coming out of places that I didn't even know had polyps. I began to target feed with my Julian's thing that also arrived with the reef chili and I've noticed growth on all of my corals in my mixed reef tank. I know this food is not necessarily geared toward SPS corals but they have the most noticeable growth of all! My wife noticed them...my WIFE noticed them! Great stuff so far, I'm feeding every other day. I tested for ammonia, phosphate, nitrates and nitrites and they are all normal after about 3 feedings over the course of 5 days.
  • BEST By Rafael on 8/20/2016

    BEST AND EASY TO USE.
  • HIGHLY recommended By FLSharkvictim on 6/27/2016

    My filter Feeders love this stuff, especially my Coco Worms and my Massive Toadstool..
    This is the only product I feed my soft corals with..
  • Great Coral Food By Zachary on 6/6/2016

    I decided to pick some of this up to mix in with mysis shrimp when I feed some of the corals in my tank. I must say, corals love it! One squirt of that in the water and coral polyps are extended and ready for more! All my corals have definitely benefited from Reef Chili.
  • Good stuff By Kurt on 6/2/2016

    Corals appear to like it. I've used it for years to add some additional food for filter feeders, corals. And fish love it too
  • corals opened right up and fish went crazy By Victoria on 5/20/2016

    Only complaint is in the questions it says the feeding jar isn't included but it is so now ive got an extra. No biggy. Was able to get my mushroom that has never showed any responce to red sea reef energy or any fish feedings to open its mouth wide.
  • Good Stuff By sneub on 3/15/2016

    Coral seem to like, I alternate with Reef Energy, fish go crazy when I feed the coral with this product!
