Created real live marine infusoria - micrplankton, nanoplankton and picoplankton for your marine reef aquarium in thirty minutes!

Reef Bugs are natural, not frozen, not dried, not freeze dried, not cooked, with no preservatives! ReefBugs COMPLETE™ 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 the cryptic organisms that are in live rock. Reef Bugs™ yields particles measuring less than one micron, up to macroscopic sizes. The individual living organisms cannot be viewed with a typical microscope. It is not the intention of the product for the microbes to be bigger. Smaller organisms are more efficient in this application as many organisms and their larvae need even smaller organisms to feed upon. Those that prefer larger particles will benefit from the aggregates formed.

These microbial aggregates, primarily bacteria and fungi (yeasts and related organisms), provide 30% or more of the planktonic matter raining down on the reef. They adhere to the coral’s surface where the corals retain them and "farm" them for their own use. 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 COMPLETE -type bio-aggregates raining down upon it in a day. True reef /marine snow is alive and repeatedly inoculates the reef with desirable edible organisms and those which are necessary for balancing the substrate and the creatures colonizing it. Reef Bugs COMPLETE™ is a unique product having these characteristics.

REVIEW
I’ve used Reef Bugs for 2 years. I dose 1 to 2 times per week, I “bloom” the bugs for about 20 minutes. I like to feed them at dusk as the lights are going down or dawn as lights are coming on. Candy canes, acans, and euphyllia, seem to love it. It’s a good food size for starving or ailing ...Read More

REVIEW
Just bought this product and it's too soon to say how or what effect it has on my 40 gallon tank. The product inside the box is a 3 oz bag of a dried product that you mix with your aquarium water to rehydrate. I like the idea of this type of feeding as my tank is more reef then fish. Starting off...Read More
