Marc Weiss Enterprises Reef Bugs Information

Marc Weiss Enterprises - Reef Bugs

REEF BUGS™ is real reef or marine “snow” which is an aggregate of LIVING MICROBES clinging to organic, inorganic, volcanic, mineral, living or recently dead matter. It provides a significant amount of reef nutrition for hard and soft corals, filter feeders and cryptic organisms that are in live rock.

Reef Bugs™ yields particle sizes down to less than a micron and up to macroscopic particles. The individual living organisms are microscopic. They cannot be viewed with typical microscopes. These microbial aggregates, primarily bacterial, and fungal (yeasts, lichens and related organisms) provide 30% or more of the planktonic matter raining down on the reef. They adhere to the coral mucus where the corals retain them and "farm" them for their own use on their mucus layer. A section of natural coral reef comprising the volume of a one hundred gallon aquarium, has about three quarters of a pound of Reef Bugs - type bio -aggregates raining down upon it in a day.

True reef / marine snow is alive and repeatedly innoculates the reef with desirable edible organisms and those which are necessary for balancing the substrate and the creatures colonizing it. Reef Bugs™ is a unique product having these characteristics.

Comments: I purchased this product to feed my mandarin and so far it seems to be working. It quickly contaminated my filters tho so I would suggest that you shut down your fitration system when you initialy dump the stuff in. I gave it a 4 because the directions gave no warning the this would be an issue. Had I been thinking more clearly i wouldn't have needed them to tell me to shut filtration down but it should still be mentioned in the directions if it matters, which is does.

Comments: I was a little suspicious since Marc Weiss products don't have the best reputation in the industry. However, it does seem to work and be pretty good stuff. Only used it for a short time, but so far I like it. It is exactly as advertised.
