Aqua-Tech is releasing its new AZOX Macro Diet coral food. The maker of Phyto2 is extending its product line with this coral food addressing the dietary needs of both photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic (azoox) corals. We don’t have the full rundown of the ingredient list but from the press release the company issued, the AZOX Macro Diet is made up of gutloaded zooplankton including nine types of copepods, two different rotifer strains, two different strains of brine shrimp nauplii, three different types of phytoplankton and an appetite stimulation ingredient (garlic maybe?). AZOX Macro Diet comes in a pump dispenser that should make feeding a cinch. No word on pricing yet but looks like the company will be on hand at the Marine Aquarium Conference of Illinois (MACI 2012) on March 11 showing it off. Full press release after the jump.
