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?
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!
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!
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!
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!
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 :)
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!
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.

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.

Another excellent product By William on 8/21/2016William wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI 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.

Great Coral Food By Zachary on 6/6/2016Zachary would recommend this product to a friendI 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.

Product should be called Reef Crack By Nicole on 1/7/2016Nicole would recommend this product to a friendSo first time using this stuff, I tried target feeding..well it scared my Kenya tree into hiding but popped right back out immediately after realizing what it was. Next thing I know my hermit crabs, trocus snail you name it starts coming out of the wood work trying to eat this stuff. My hermit crabs especially have started attacking each other over this stuff.

Great food for Corals By Donna on 11/30/2015Donna would recommend this product to a friendBeen using Reef Chili to feed my corals for about 3 months now.
