Detailed Description

Zoo•Blast is a nutritious complex of several naturally occuring zooplankton in a wide range of sizes from 200 to 2,000 uM. Zoo•Blast is not made from ground up shrimp or fish like several other products are, but is made with actual plankton! Zoo•Blast provides for growth and increased coloration, by providing proteins, naturally occuring lipids, including important omega fatty acids EPA and DHA, and a wide range of vitamins. It also contains carotenoids, for coloration. Zoo•Blast does not require refrigeration, but refrigeration will prolong shelf life.

Zoo•Blast is useful for feeding hard and soft corals, sponges, filter feeding worms, tunicates and clams of all types. It is particularly suited for those that feed on mesoplankton. Many species of marine fishes will also feed on Zoo•Blast. It is recommended that you turn off your protein skimmer and other filtration for 15 to 30 minutes prior to adding the Zoo•Blast to the aquarium. Be careful when feeding liquid foods, not to overload the system. It is recommended that you not add more than the recommended dosage of any food per day. Continuum recommends that the hobbyist vary the types and sizes of foods delivered into the reef aquarium. Other Continuum foods that make good choices for this food rotation include Coral Exponential, Ocean Snow, Micro•Blast and Phyto•Blast. Also, occasionally blending the foods and using them as soaks for other foods will give your invertebrates a variety simulating nature. Vary the time of day for feeding, as well, being sure to feed at night for those organisms that primarily feed nocturnally. Many corals feed primarily at night, extending their tentacles and mesentarial filaments, using their nematocysts to capture prey, and entrapping prey on their sticky tentacles with mucus and drawing it into their mouths.
