Considerations for use:
Never before have reef aquarium hobbyists been presented with such a break through in the nutrition of filter feeding invertebrates, planktivorous fishes, and fish and invertebrate larvae. Omega-3 fatty acids and carotenoid pigments have been shown to greatly increase immune efficiency, growth rate, and coloration of aquatic animals. The species of zooplankton used in ZooPlex is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, biological pigments, and protein. ZooPlex provides reef hobbyists with a natural zooplankton food source, one that is readily accepted by all types of LPS, SPS, and soft (leather) corals, as well as polyps, clams and other bivalves, and many species of marine fish (from gobies to juvenile angelfish and butterflyfish). Kent Marine ZooPlex is intended for use with all types of filter feeding marine invertebrates, as well as planktivorous fishes. For best results with invertebrates, alternate use with Kent PhytoPlex, ChromaPlex, Coral-Accel, and Micro Vert to provide a full-range of nutrients. Studies have shown that most ornamental marine organisms have a wide-ranging diet in the wild, which provides essential nutrients for a naturally long and healthy life. It is therefore all the more important to provide captive marine organisms with a varied diet, rather than feeding the same type of food day after day; in this manner, natural feeding habits and nutritive needs are provided for in an aquarium environment. As when feeding any food product, pay close attention to water quality and do not overfeed.
ZooPlex contains a species of zooplankton that is harvested in a remote region of the world.
Aquacultured marine zooplankton.
