Kent Micro Vert contains a nutritionally balanced diet for corals, sponges, anemones, gorgonians, feather dusters, clams and other fine filter feeders. It is rich in vitamins and natural minerals from spirulina and kelp. Other products have not been properly preserved and smelled rotten, or were preserved with harsh, non food grade chemicals that smell like medicated mouthwash. Who wants to put these products into their expensive and sensitive marine aquarium? Kent Micro Vert is properly preserved, with preservatives reserved for human food use. It has a long shelf life without refrigeration and will provide superior results, just smell the difference!

Shake well immediately before use.

Invertebrate foods should be used sparingly in a marine aquarium, to prevent loss of water quality! Add 1 to 3 drops per gallon of aquarium water, up to 3 times a week (this is equal to 1/2 to 1-1/2 teaspoons or capfuls in a 55 gallon aquarium).

Nitrite testing will warn of overdosing.

Target Method:
Individual animals may be targeted with this product and this is the most efficient method. It also causes less pollution in the aquarium. To do this, purchase a plastic syringe at any drug store. Fill the syringe with Kent Micro Vert Invertebrate food and dispense, as necessary where the product will flow over the animal. Do not touch the animal with the syringe. Do not contaminate this product with aquarium water by inserting syringe into this container!

Considerations for use:
At a minimum supply additional calcium through Kent Marine Kalkwasser Mix, Liquid Calcium or Turbo-Calcium and use Strontium & Molybdenum Supplement. Kent Marine Essential Elements and Coral-Vite will greatly enhance the keeping of marine invertebrates. If large numbers of invertebrates are kept, also use Kent Tech I to supply additional iodine. Live corals require strong lighting, with proper spectrum and immaculately clean systems. Regular water changes are encouraged. Use Kent Marine Superbuffer-dKH to control alkalinity and prevent pH swings.

Great Product

We are just starting our 180 gallon reef tank and Micro-Vert really gave our live rock a jump start. After using the product, the life just seemed to start springing up all over the tank. I'm so glad we chose this food to get all of our tiny babies happy and healthy. it is very simple to use. The instructions are very clear.

Staple for Marine Tanks

A good all purpose feed for marine corals and inverts. My clams love it. Easy to overfeed so be careful and remember to clean protein skimmes often when using.

I think this stuff is great. I mean it's not as if your feather dusters can tell you whether or not they like. Mine just seem to be doing well. Wish they had the super-condences drops like they do in other coral feeding products.
