About Coral Food Coral Food gives (directly or indirectly) highly nutritional particles ranging  in size from 5 – 150 micron and dissolved natural polymeric and monomeric  nutrients. When dosed according to the instructions corals will have sufficient  food to thrive without polluting the water. The organic load caused by this  supplement is comparable to what is found in pristine seawater. This food is  also ideal for sponges, tunicates, feather duster worms and many other  organisms. Coral Food tries to replicate replicate most of the food found in nature where  the corals thrive.

About feeding corals Soft, leather and hard corals and many other organisms are highly capable in  catching food particles. But then the particle size must be within a certain  range and it should signal the organisms that this is what they are waiting for.  That is, it has the nutrients they require.
Another way in which corals can obtain nutrients is through their tissue. Such  nutrients must meet several criteria otherwise they will not be transported  through the tissue or will pollute the water heavily.
All the nutrients obtained by the above described ways are used for growth and  energy. This energy is used to carry out important biological processes  resulting in well-being of the corals and other organisms.
Some corals obtain a part of the food from the symbiotic algae but additional  feeding on a regular basis with foods described above shows major improvements  in time. The food they obtain by catching and by transport through their tissue contains  fatty acids, vitamins, polymeric carbohydrates, proteins with a proper amino  acid composition and some trace minerals bound to the proteins and  carbohydrates. Coral Food contains similar substances.
