Continuum Chroma Blast 250ml Phytoplanton mix to Enhance Coral Colour

2 items left

Continuum Chroma Blast is a wide range colour enhancing phytoplankton complex designed for live corals and reef aquaria to enhance colouration of coral.

The Continuum advantage

Chroma Blast is a nutritious complex of several naturally occurring marine phytoplankton in a wide range of sizes from 1 to 30 uM, known to enhance coloration of live corals.

Chroma Blast is real phytoplankton, aquacultured in under pristine conditions, not simply a mixture of freshwater algae or ground up vegetables.

It provides for growth and increased colouration, by providing proteins, naturally occurring lipids, including important omega fatty acids EPA and DHA, and a wide range of vitamins.

It also contains chlorophyll, carotenoids, astaxanthin, zeaxanthin and canthaxanthin for coloration. Chroma Blast does not require refrigeration, but refrigeration will prolong shelf life.

Use in aquarium keeping.

Chroma 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 microplankton.

It is recommended that you turn off your protein skimmer and other filtration for 15 to 30 minutes prior to adding the Chroma 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 Phyto Blast, Coral Exponential, Micro Blast, Zoo Blast and Ocean Snow.

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.

Shake well prior to use.

  • Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water 2 to 3 times per week or more often, in an area of high flow.

  • Target feeding is the best method of addition.
  • Use a turkey baster, pipette, or similar tool to release upstream of animals to be fed.
  • Do not touch corals with tool.
  • Do not insert tool into this bottle, particularly do not allow aquarium water to enter the bottle, to do so will introduce bacteria into the product and accelerate its decomposition.
  • Instead, pour appropriate amount of Chroma Blast into a cup and use the tool in the cup. Feed all that you pour and do not return any product to the container (again to prevent contamination).
