Brightwell Aquatics Microvore Microdiet 500mL / 17oz Information




Suspension of particulate, microencapsulated marine proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates fortifiedwith complex and free form amino and fatty acids,and vitamins important to immune system function.

Appropriate for feeding many LPS, zooxanthellate, and azooxanthellate soft corals, as well asgorgonians, anemones, and other solitary and colonial polyps, particularly at night when tentacles are extended to maximize chances of prey capture.

Readily eaten by a multitude of reef associated fishes known to feed on zooplankton and food particles drifting in the water column, including anemonefishes, basslets and pseudochromids, anthias, damselfishes and chromis, pygmy angelfishes, cardinalfishes, dartfishes, jawfishes, hawkfishes, wrasse, and many surgeonfishes.

Does not require refrigeration, however, storage in a cool and/or shaded area will prolong the activity of the vitamins. Refrigeration will maximize the shelf-life of the product.

Formulated by a marine scientists.

Instructions and Guidelines

Shake product well before using. Turn protein skimmer and other forms of mechanical filtration off prior to adding Micrōvore to aquaria, and allow 10 - 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 Micrōvore into the feeding device, then slowly discharge the contents of the device 2 - 4” 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 Micrōvore to corals is after all lights in the aquarium have been off (preferably for at least one- to two-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 (½-capful) per 50 gallons of water in the entire aquarium system in an area of rapid water movement every other day for the first four weeks of use; thereafter, the dosage may be gradually increased if desired. Notes: Micrōvore 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 four 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.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.

Guaranteed Analysis:Moisture (max) 92%, protein (min) 4.8%, lipid (min) 1.4%, fiber (min) 0.04%, ash (max) 1.2%.

Ingredients:Purified water, marine fish protein and oils, ascorbic acid, complex and free-form amino and fatty acids.

Comments: I bought the Microvore Microdiet for my corals and they absolutely LOVE THIS! My yellow coris wrasse LOVES this product too - always jetting out from the rockwork to grab some of the larger particles in the liquid. My neon green mushroom is getting its color back and is now opening a lot larger than before! All my corals are looking healthier - Thanks Brightwell!! (I gave 4 1/2 stars because its only been about a month since i first used this product and I already see better response from tank).
