Marc Weiss Enterprises Soft Coral Grow Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Marc Weiss Enterprises - Soft Coral Grow™

Soft corals and polyps primarily eat detrital aggregates colonized by beneficial microplankton adhering to , and in their copious mucus layer. These organisms farm their own food in their mucus layer. Soft corals are carnivorous and highprotein microbes support their growth and health.

Soft corals do not appear to digest phytoplankton (algae) but there appears to be a positive response to their dissolved remains. They’re nourished through their mucus envelope mostly via the by-products of bacterioplankton. Large zooplankton are sparse in nature and make up a small amount of the soft coral’s nutritional intake. Microbes in the mucus layer are required to degrade it first. In time, mainly the bacterioplankton fix and reduce nitrates produced by this rotting food. These large pieces of dead coral nutrients are adding to the pollution in the aquarium until it’s consumed. Microbial enriched coral mucus also contains other beneficial organisms that may eat, overgrow or provide antibiotic by-products against pathogens.

Soft Coral Grow™ provides a bio-film that adheres to and enhances the coral’s mucus layer. This bio-film provides an enhanced environment for increased microplankton colonization allowing soft corals ands polyps to feed them-selves more efficiently from the microbes already in the aquarium or added to it. This eliminates pollution caused by excess food. The use of the appropriate trace elements and water conditioners should be continued. Soft Coral Grow™ is a natural cultured detrital aggregate and algal colloids with no biocidal preservatives, as are needed in liquid coral foods. Results are usually seen within two weeks.

Good idea, but...

Comments: The idea behind this product is solid. So far it seems safe and possibly effective. Problem is it takes several months to really evaluate something like this and there are so many confounding variables. Having said that, overall, it seems like a decent product. I was hesitant since Marc Weiss products have had some very bad reviews in the past. This stuff may be different!
