Your plankton eating buddies like fish, corals and inverts benefit from the suspension of marine proteins, lipid and carbohydrates. Free-form amino and fatty acids boost their immune system. Ideal for clowns, basslets, anthias, damsels, wrasses, corals shellfish, tubeworms and others. Chris Brightwell uses his world renowned expertise to develop all of Brightwell products. Microvore does not require refrigeration.

Instructions Shake product well before using. Turn protein skimmer and other forms of mechanical filtration off prior to adding Microvore to aquaria, and allow 10 to 15 minutes after use before resuming operation of filtration.
Target Feeding (corals): Target feeding may be carried out with a lengthy piece of rigid air tubing, plastic syringe, pipette, dropper, or similar device; suck a portion of Microvore into the feeding device, then slowly discharge the contents of the device 2 to 4 inches upstream of the target organism(s). Repeat these steps as deemed necessary. Do not place items that have been exposed to aquarium water inside this container without first thoroughly rinsing them (inside and outside) with fresh water; failure to do so will contaminate the product and encourage it to decompose. See �Notes� below regarding maximum recommended feeding amount. Most zooxanthellate corals extend their tentacles at night, when the majority of coralivorous and zooplanktivorous fishes are asleep and the abundance of zooplankton in the water column passing over and through the reef is at its greatest. Therefore, the most sensible time to feed Microvore to corals is after all lights in the aquarium have been off (preferably for at least 1 to 2 hours) and the room is dark. Using a dim flashlight, illuminate the area immediately upstream of the coral to be fed, then feed as directed above.
Broadcast Dispersal (primarily for feeding fishes): Add up to 2.5 ml (1/2 capful) per 50 gallons of water in the entire aquarium system in an area of rapid water movement every other day for the first 4 weeks of use; thereafter, the dosage may be gradually increased if desired.
Notes: Microvore should be considered a type of food. Add no more than 5 ml total of liquid food suspensions per 50 gallons of water in the entire aquarium system daily for the first 4 weeks of use; thereafter, the dosage may be gradually increased as desired. Starting out at a low dosage and gradually increasing it with time will allow the biological filtration in the aquarium to adjust to the increase in nutrients and prevent water quality from deteriorating.
Ingredients Purified water, marine fish protein and oils, ascorbic acid, complex and free-form amino and fatty acids.
