Highly Recommended By Tony G on 4/5/2020Tony G would recommend this product to a friendI've heard from many sources that corals generate most of the food they need from sunlight. I would agree that they can survive just fine, but if you aren't feeding your corals then you are missing out on a grand opportunity to make them grow and trhive!
I bought the LPS Grow & Color for a handful of acans that I have in my reef tank. The acans love this stuff and I saw a tremendous boost in growth the moment I started feeding these to my corals. They started sprouting new heads like mad and have really increased in size way more than I expected.
What I didn't know was that nearly all my other corals would be able to eat this stuff too. I have a Leptastrea that had been the same size since I bought it 6 months ago. I accidentally dropped a single pellet and was shocked to see it grab it up and eat it immediately. I started feeding the Leptastrea a few times a week and it has tripled in size in the last 2 months, it's pretty awesome. I have been feeding it to mushrooms, hammers, frogspawn, goniapora and my plate fungia. Everything loves this stuff and my growth has increased for all these corals too. Not as much as the acans, but the increase is substantial.
I will say that the only coral that hasn't responded with a spurt of growth is my favites. They eat it and appear to really love it, but I haven't seen any growth in them like I have for the others. Maybe they are simply slow growers and I'm expecting too much. They seem fatter, but they haven't added any new heads/polyps so far.
Nearly everything in my tank that isn't an acro loves LPS Grow and Color. I would highly recommend this to anyone that isn't an acro-only reefer!
Great Product! By Rob on 5/4/2016Rob would recommend this product to a friendMy acans were looking a little deflated so I picked up some to see if they'd like this better. After one feeding, i've never seen my acans puff up so much. They are always looking to feed now. It has definitely made it's way into my regular feeding schedule. Only tough part is keeping shrimp and crabs away long enough to give the acans a chance to eat. My scoly, lobo and duncan's love this stuff too!
Fauna marin ultra lps By Blackdog on 5/3/2016Blackdog would recommend this product to a friendI read some articles in coral magazine's regarding acans and this food one of thoes articles had before and after pictures of acans and what I saw was amazing he only fed them this food the after pics unbelievable you would think it was a different coral so that's why I thought I have to try this my acans love them frog spawn and hammers do to I have been feeding for about 3 weeks one of my acans is turning to a florescent neon pink I have always fed my corals a variety of foods brine shrimp mices shrimp clam feast plankton fish eggs ect. The color of that acan was good but now it is really something else I will do another review In about 4-6 weeks and will let you know how it is going with color and health but so far it seems good
Depends on the coral By ZG on 7/30/2015ZG would recommend this product to a friendSome of my LPS love these and can't get enough, others won't touch them. My candy canes, Acan Bowerbanki love them. The folded brain coral, scolymia, will not eat them. I turned all powerheads off, tried feeding at night, it didn't matter. They would not eat them
Tiny Particles By CJ on 4/7/2015CJ wouldn't recommend this product to a friendGot these to feed to my acans. Medium pellet? They are more like crumbs. They are very tiny. I tried to feed them to the acans and they spit them out. $25 wasted.
Corals love it! By Jim on 3/14/2015Jim would recommend this product to a friendMost of my LPS love this food - only problem is keeping the shrimp and hermit crabs from stealing it! A little goes a long way - no need for 250 ml size unless you're running a coral farm!
My corals loved it. By Ben on 10/29/2014Ben would recommend this product to a friendMy corals love this food. I had not tried a pellet coral food before. I am pleased with the results. Easier to target feed, than frozen food. you avoid all the waste that the corals don't catch. Also, you don't have to turn off all your power heads. Part of my feeding regimen now.
Wonderful stuff By Dwain on 9/14/2014Dwain would recommend this product to a friendMy corals act like it's thanksgiving with this stuff. It's fun to see them work it toward their mouths, then gobble it up, then look incredibly healthy. Only issue is the shrimp love it more so you need to chase them away long enough to give the coral time to make it disappear.
Acan and Dendro Lovers Rejoice! By Lindsey on 1/27/2014Lindsey would recommend this product to a friendMy tank is full of filter feeders, hard to feed fish, and meat loving LPSs, so it gets fed a lot, and a great variety of foods. This has been the latest addition to my tank's menu, and while it is still early, I'm already impressed.
The acans gobble it up like it's going out of style, and a single dendro I was afraid was headed for death (changed my lighting system recently, and while everything else took it in stride, the dendro was less than happy) started engulfing the pellets I sprinkled on it within seconds, despite having refused mysis, nutimar ova, reef chili, and cyclopeze for weeks.
While the dendro is still not staying out much, it comes out and eats heartily as soon as I put a couple of these on it, and remains out after devouring those to gorge on everything I can squirt its way. Hopefully given another couple weeks, it will be back and better than ever!
LPS eat this up By Ezra on 1/27/2014Ezra would recommend this product to a friendI have never seen LPS coral eat something so fast. Both my duncan as well as my Blasto love this. This is definitely a great option to have to make sure your corals are getting the proper nutrients they need.
Great LPS Food By Sheen on 12/27/2013Sheen would recommend this product to a friendAlmost all my LPS (exception of alveopora / goniopora due to their small mouth size) eats this product. The pellet size is similar to "Hikari Seaweed Extreme Small Fish Food Pellets" and it's about 1mm in diameter. Since I got this product, I no longer feed brine shrimp to my LPS. I target feed Button Coral, Meat Coral, Short Tentacle Plate Coral, Acan, Duncan, Bubble and Hammer. The product remains solid while feeding and it doesn't melt away.
Good Seafood By Ron on 12/17/2013Ron would recommend this product to a friendLPS like it. My duncan donuts are coming out the wood work with new heads. I didn't even know that was possable....Good size for frog sperms too.....
Is there a shelf life for Fauna Marin LPS pellets if stored properly in a cool and dry environment?
