This coral feeding video of Frédeau’s reef (aka Gloupe) shows just how impressive coral feeding responses can be when the right ingredients are used. We all know you are suppose to feed your corals for maximum growth rates and color and in the past couple of years the popularity of feeding corals has exploded, with dozens of different brands, and foods to prove it. However, it still seems that a lot of aquarists often forgo feeding. After seeing this video however, you might want to change those habits. All the LPS in the system just seem to explode the moment the food hits the water, and even SPS extend their feeding tentacles. Check out the results and the recipe for yourself after the break.
The coral food recipe fed in this video includes the following:
- five blended mussles,
- five blended clams
- five blended prawns
- five blended oysters
- A capsule of Reef Booster Probidio
- Fauna Marin pellets
- Reef Pearls
- Spirulina Powder
- fish eggs
It appears that Frédeau is dosing carbon sources to his system, so 2ml of Vodka and a table spoon of grounded sugar are also added. We can just imagine how saturated this coral food recipe is with lipids, and how much it will affect the skimmer, but the corals definitely seem to love it. Because of this we definitely recommend starting with lower dosages if you decide to start feeding your corals, as the last thing you want to happen is nutrient levels shooting through the roof and causing unintended imbalances.
