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.

  • Easy to use coral food By Dave S. on 9/25/2017

    Part of the reason I stayed away from LPS and SPS corals were the nightmarish mixes of different frozen foods you had to use years ago. Now with Reef Chili and Reef Roids in tandem, I can make sure ALL of my softies, LPS and SPS are not only properly fed but also thriving. I saw an immediate difference and my Montis especially are responding right away as well as my Red Goniopora. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone!
  • Love it! By Jon on 9/19/2017

    My corals love this food. Used ever other day, alternating with reef roids.
  • Gorgonian AND Goniopora finally feeding! By sh4rkbyt3 on 9/14/2017

    Feeding my Gorgonian wasn't too much of a challenge but then feeding my Red Goniopora definitely became one! One reason I've held off from buying corals was the endless advice of feeding regimines, types of food and the fact much of it was a mix of frozen and phyto (which doesn't seem to live very long).
    Now I've got one easy food that even my mushrooms, zoas and even palys respond to! Even after only the second feeding I've already noticed much better colors and better response from my corals when it comes to feeding.

    This is an absolute must have if you have corals or inverts, even fish like it!
  • Great Product, Easy and Fun to use! By Ken P on 8/17/2017

    I wanted to wait a little bit so as to give Reef Chili a few weeks to see how my corals responded to it. It didn't take that long for me to see a definite difference in feeding response and growth. Both have increased dramatically. My Zoas, other softies, and LPS all love this stuff. Plus, its actually fun to feed as they seem to go crazy for the stuff. I've started adding a cube or two of frozen mysis shrimp in the bottle when I mix for even a better response, especially my Acans. I'm definitely a believer!!
  • Not Impressed By LM on 7/24/2017

    My corals don't seem to be responding any differently than they have been to the blend of reef food I made. IMO the feeding spoon they give you is way to small of a portion for what they recommend.
  • It's the BEE's KNEE's By Kurt on 7/19/2017

    This stuff is awesome! All of my corals loved it. LPS and SPS when nuts for it. The price is great and the bottle last a long time. Can't go wrong purchasing this. Thanks BRS!
  • Amazing Stuff By Suraj on 5/30/2017

    Corals Keeps on asking for more! This stuff is great and will continue to buy to provide healthy growth and diet to my corals.
  • This Stuff!!! By City Reefer on 5/5/2017

    This stuff.....
    I will be using Reef Chili till BSR stops making it.
    My corals and fish love this stuff!
    Best coral food I've ever run across.
  • Wow By Joshua Brown on 3/1/2017

    Had been feeding an array of different liquid and frozen foods to my different coral. Ordered Monday, used free shipping, got it today (Wednesday) in So. Illinois. Impressive, BRS is the best.

    Did the first feeding tonight. Holy crap! Furthest polyp extension I have ever seen in reaction to food. I cannot believe it.
    Will take time to determine how well it helps them grow, but they defiantly like it a lot.
    Great work guys, I know the company was kind of built around this, and you guys deserve to have grown because of it. Incredible.

    Hi Ryan!
  • Just WoW By Randy on 2/13/2017

    This is the first time I have purchased this. I have always read various products would cause all SPS to go Crzy with PE. But non have ever done this for me, until I used this. All my SPS go crazy when this gets into the water. The response is just amazing. I will definitely purchase this again when I need to. JUST WOW!!!
  • Good food By Bowhunt69 on 2/12/2017

    Just started using this product. Corals seem to love it. Time will tell.
  • LOVE IT!!! By Adam on 12/14/2016

    Have been using the Reef Chili for a couple weeks now and it's just amazing. There is almost an instant response from all my sps, lps and softies once the chili hits the water column! The sun corals come to life and fully open waiting on their turn to get some reef chili....even the Blue/Green Chromis seem to go into a feeding frenzy mode when I am feeding the corals with it.

    I don't know what y'all put in this stuff but the response of my aquarium is like a cat on catnip...it's crack for corals...LOL

Product Questions

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!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 31, 2016 6:50:00 PM
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
What will be the best time to feed this to the corals?
Question by: Pedro on Oct 23, 2017 5:08:00 PM
Hi Pedro, Thanks for reaching out!

This is a bit of a tricky question in that some corals will feed during the day while others will mainly extend their feeding tentacles at night. That being said, nocturnal corals like Tubastraea (sun corals) for instance, can be trained over time to feed during the day.
If you are target feeding your corals you will learn, through a bit of trial and error/observation you which of your specific corals hold onto the food and ingest it. The other option would be to feed half the Reef Chili with the lights on and the other half after the lights have been out to make sure all of your corals are getting fed.
Answer by: Nick (Admin) on Nov 10, 2017 2:00:00 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
How long does reef chili stay fresh? How do you recommend storing it (fridge or freezer)?
Question by: doug on Dec 17, 2016 7:56:00 PM
Great question! Reef Chili has a very long shelf life and only needs to be stored in a dry area. :-)
Answer by: Admin (Admin) on Dec 22, 2016 5:59:00 PM
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
How does this product compare to a product like cyclop-eez?
Question by: Brian Bergman on Jan 26, 2017 10:37:00 AM
Great question! The Cyclop-eez product is a blend of micro-crustaceans, while the Reef Chili is freeze dried phytoplankton and zooplankton and other proprietary ingredients. :-)

Does this come with the Reef Chili Feeding Jar?
Question by: charlie on Jul 18, 2017 2:43:00 PM
Hey Charlie,
Thanks for reaching out to us. Each jar of BRS Reef Chili includes directions, a feeding jar, and a measuring spoon.
Answer by: Jason Smith (Admin) on Jul 18, 2017 4:21:00 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 :)
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Aug 16, 2014 6:08:00 AM
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!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 25, 2016 6:42:00 PM
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.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on May 21, 2015 6:26:00 PM
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!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 29, 2016 10:55:00 AM
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.
