Benereef is a new reef aquarium food from Benepets which is designed to benefit your reef in a variety of ways. The new Benepets covers all the basic coral food requirements with food particles ranging in size from 3 to 3000 microns provided by a very impressive list of ingredients:
Salmon Fish Meal, Freeze Dried Planktons, Brine Shrimp, Rotifers, Copepods, Brewers Yeast, Corn Starch, Calcium Powder, Astaxanthin, Spirulina, Garlic Powder, Marine Fish Oil, Soy Flour, Special blends of Natural Super Foods, Benepets Proprietary Probiotic blend such as but not limited to Lactobacillus, Saccharomyces and Bacillus species.
If you glanced at the list of ingredients included in the Benereef coral and reef food, you’ll notice there’s more diversity there than your average coral food. Additionally, Benereef also includes no fewer than three different strains of probiotic bacteria to stimulate an overall positive microbial environment for every aspect of a reef tank, not just the corals.
Just looking at the dry powder which constitutes Benereef you can clearly see a diversity of particle sizes and types. Benepets’ formula and general approach has definitly piqued our interest, and it’ll be informative to see how the non-photosynthetic corals in our Azoox coral aquarium respond to this food, and how the higher nutrient condition of this type of tank responds to regular bacterial innoculations with the new Benereef complete reef food.
Benepets makes grandiose claims about the proposed benefits of using Benereef, promising everything from increased vitality & growth, a cleaner overall aquarium, and even the restoration of damaged corals. Those are some big shoes for Benereef to fill but this foods’ long term use will be the ultimate tale of the tape. [Benepets]
