Reef Snow


Feed Supplement 2oz

Natural binding agent from algae for the formation of reef snow particles

Due to the high biological activity in intact coral reefs, high concentrations of biopolymer substances can be found there. In contact with nutrient particles and through the colonization with specialized bacteria, particles with an increased nutrient content are formed, which are also visible to the naked eye. These flaky to filamentous particles are known as reef snow.

Tropic Marin ® REEF SNOW contains such natural marine biopolymers. Together with other feed materials, they form nutrient-rich flakes, which are similar to those of natural reef snow, and feed them to the corals and other filter feeders. The concentration of a REEF SNOW solution can be varied in order to individually adapt the size of the flakes to the filter feeders in the pool.
