Fauna Marin is well known for making a huge catalog of coral foods and today they are adding yet another feeding choice to that list. Coral Sprint is Fauna Marin’s newest coral food which is billed as a premium grade ‘bacterioplankton’.
In the literal sense of the word, bacterioplankton are the tiniest of living microorganisms which drift in the ocean currents, mainly bacteria. But how Fauna Marin is replicating this in a dried powder for aquarium use is a mystery, or whether this is actually a bacterial inoculation, or simply bacteria-sized particles.
Fauna Marin makes no claims that their product is alive, or contains spores of any kinds, so we can only assume that the food particles include some extremely fine ones for the most vigorous filter feeders. Fauna Marin is offering the new Coral Sprint in a four sizes, starting out at a 100ml jar which retails for 20€. [Fauna Marin]
