Phytoplankton

Phytoplankton

 

Phytoplankton brings essential nutrition & benefits to a reef aquarium. Feeding phytoplankton promotes brighter coloured corals and faster coral growth.

Many of these animals can and do capture phytoplankton directly, and the ones that cannot, such as the fishes still take advantage of the nutritional quality of these tiny algae by preying on small animals that do eat them (such as copepods, rotifers and mysids).
