Do corals need food?
Not exactly. With the help of many unicellular algae (= zooxanthellae) which are embedded in the tissue of the corals, corals can feed indirectly on light. The symbiotic algae transfer various sugars to the coral, which they produce during photosynthesis. However, the algae in turn need nutrients to maintain their metabolism. They can obtain these, for example, from the excrements of the reef fish in your aquarium. It is therefore not possible to run a tank completely without nutrients.
The importance of feeding corals in your aquarium
In order for your corals to look colorful, be healthy and keep growing, you should feed them. Regular feeding means that less symbiotic algae are incorporated into the tissue. The coral looks more colourful because the pigments are more visible. Furthermore, it has been proven that directly fed corals are less susceptible to bleaching or other diseases. They will also have more energy to grow.
The advantage of powder food
As it is highly concentrated and very energy-rich, powdered food can be used very sparingly. A further advantage is the long shelf life. Store the food in a cool and dry place and always with the lid closed.
