UFO Coral Feeder
Yesterday while visiting Aqua Medic USA we spotted a unique coral feeder being used to target feed and rehabilitate corals. The UFO (unwanted fish out) coral feeder comes down from above to cover and protect your corals from unwanted fish.
The UFO feeder is made from clear rigid tubing attached to a rigid plastic saucer. Once the saucer lands onto of the coral any food which is passed through the tube will land directly on top of a coral.
This type of direct coral feeder ensures all the food is given to a coral and that no pesky fish will come picking at the food or nipping at the coral. This feeder works great in shallow frag tanks and there is no need to turn off the flow.
Another use is for rehabilitating corals. The coral feeder can be used to isolate any coral giving them more time to eat. Orlando from Aqua Medic told us he has used the feeder to bring back bleached unhealthy corals to happy healthy colonies.
The UFO coral feeder is being made by Monster Reef a Local Fish Store here in Greeley Colorado.
