Suspension of particulate, microencapsulated marine proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates
fortified with complex and free-form amino and fatty acids, and vitamins important to
immune system function.
Appropriate for feeding many LPS, zooxanthellate, and azooxanthellate soft corals, as
well as gorgonians, anemones, and other solitary and colonial polyps, particularly at night
when tentacles are extended to maximize chances of prey-capture.
Readily eaten by a multitude of reef-associated fishes known to feed on zooplankton and
food particles drifting in the water column, including anemonefishes, basslets and
pseudochromids, anthias, damselfishes and chromis, pygmy angelfishes, cardinalfishes,
dartfishes, jawfishes, hawkfishes, wrasse, and many surgeonfishes.
Does not require refrigeration.
As pristine and “clear” as the waters flowing over tropical reefs may appear to the casual observer, closer examination reveals an abundance of zooplankton and suspended particulate organic material that is ever present (though the abundance may change on a temporal basis, particularly at night), and is an extremely important source of food to reef ecosystems, as a whole. These microorganisms and particulates are preyed and fed upon, respectively, by a multitude of fishes and sessile invertebrates regularly seen in the marine aquarium hobby.
Brightwell Aquatics Micrōvore effectively replicates the presence of zooplankton and particulates so natural to reef fishes and suspension-feeding invertebrates such as corals and tube worms. Equally important, Micrōvore is an ideal blend of marine-derived nutrients required for long-term health, growth, and coloration of the reef fishes and invertebrates that feed upon it. Furthermore, it is a useful aid in encouraging zooplanktivorous fishes, such as anthias, to begin eating after addition to aquaria.
Micrōvore does not require refrigeration, however storage in a cool, shaded area will prolong the activity of the vitamins. Refrigeration will maximize the shelf-life of the product.
